A little over a week ago, some of you may remember my post about my husband buying a Lucy for me after seeing it in my eBay watch list. I was worried he bought a fake-well, he didn't! When it arrived last Friday, I examined it so closely--there was a hot pink star stamped on the inside (from a sample sale maybe?) and the leather is soooo smooshy and smells so good. It does not look anything like the eBay picture. I still wasn't sure so I took it with me to visit my family in D.C. My sister has an ivory Lucy (blame her for starting THE obsession). We compared my eBay Lucy with her N&M Lucy-everything matched to a tee. I even tried to pry the Kooba plates off of the bag and the inside-they didn't come off. I'm so happy and so relieved. I wish I had a digital camera so I could post images. I'll try to borrow one from a friend in the next few days. Thanks ladies for all of your help and experience with Koobas and ebay. People like you make TPF a good place to learn how to spend your money on fabulous bags!
