A dream come true ... x 2!
One thing I often daydream about is being in a thrift store and coming across a beautiful vintage bag for an insaaaanely low price. I’ve looked, but so far have been unsuccessful. I came close once, but turns out what I thought was a vintage Gucci bucket bag, was just a good fake. Money lost and lesson learned.
Ealry this month though, I miraculously found TWO - a vintage Coach Tailor pouch made in the USA, and a Bottega Veneta clutch/crossbody circa 1960 with original dustbag! Amazing. The prices, even more amazing. I found them surprisingly through the Facebook market and the sellers were so responsive and kind to answer my plethora of questions. Being a bag fiend, I tend to have a lot of questions on authenticity haha.
Overall, the condition of both bags are very good for their age. I plan to try a full wash with the Coach bag, and will do a gentle surface wash with the BV once I get the proper products that are gentle enough to use on the leathers.
How do these fit into my wardrobe goals? Um, they don’t! They’re fulfilling my dreams! LOL. I’m just going to enjoy them because you can’t plan when you’re going to find the most amazing vintage bag x 2. You just gotta embrace and enjoy, guilt free :)
