Gerard Darel: Off for Consignment

This the rich cream of this Gerard Darel "24 Heures" bag is a great year-round neutral color. The leather is soft but not delicate; you don't have to baby it. This bag was worn probably about a dozen times, but I can't see any obvious signs of wear. Hardware is antique brass, cotton lined interior with one zip pocket. Dustbag included.
Measurements 16" W x 10" H x 4" D. It's a slouchy bag, not bulky and can be worn over the shoulder.

Bag has been sent for consignment sale.


Furla: SOLD!

Furla has discontinued this "Freda" style, and I think they're crazy! This black bag features the gathers on both the front and back, glossy black leather with dark brown stitching, and a silver charm and hardware. It's a bag meant to be carried in hand or in the crook of the elbow, but it's so light you won't mind. Double zippers open to reveal a W-I-D-E opening:

Interior is black cloth lined with one large zip and one cell phone pocket. Dustbag included. This bag retailed for close to $600 new. It has been gently used, and the leather has softened but otherwise shows no signs of wear.

Measurements: 16" W x 10" H x 4" deep.
Asking $300 plus your choice shipping.

Dooney & Bourke: SOLD!

I've hung onto this bag mostly because I just love this color, but have rarely used it. This is D&B's "all weather leather" from a few years ago, and they aren't kidding! I had another bag in this leather that wore like iron. This tassel tote closes at the top with a magnet, and the drawstring can be loosened if you like it to open wider. And when you open....

Look at that gorgeous paisley lining! The bag has one exterior zipped pocket on the back, one interior zipped pocket, a cell phone pocket and an attached key fob, so you don't have to dig for those keys. Dustbag included. It originally came with the D&B duck charm, but I've misplaced it.
Measurements: 11" W x 10" H x 3½" D.

Asking $150 plus your choice shipping.

Hayden-Harnett: SOLD!

This Hayden-Harnett Tharpe Hobo in Yam is the most scrumptious color! If you're a woman who needs both style and organization, this is the bag for you! One large exterior pocket in front, two exterior side pockets, one zippered "secret compartment" in the flap, interior zip and slip pockets AND a center zipped compartment mean you never have to burrow to find your keys or a ringing cellphone. The leather is thick and soft, the handle drop allows easy wear on the shoulder, and did I mention the amazing color???

Dimensions 16" W (including exterior pockets) x 10" H x 6" D. Handle drop 9-10".

Edited to add: a couple people have asked to see pics of the darkened corners, and I've tried to capture best I could. The areas are really small, and my camera doesn't do extreme close-ups well...

Asking $250 $175 plus shipping.

Hayden-Harnett: SOLD

This is a brand new, never used Hayden-Harnett Suki Ladybag (now a discontinued style). The leather is gorgeous: soft, thick and glossy. There's a good-sized exterior pocket, great for keys and/or cell phone, and the cloth-lined interior includes a zipped pocket and two slip pockets. This versatile bag dresses up or down, and the handle drop allows it to be worn very comfortably on the shoulder. The zipped frame top and soft bag body give the best of both worlds. I bought this bag on sale and had a coupon, so I'm able to offer it at a very low price. (Originally sold for around $400). Dustbag/tags included.
This bag has been SOLD. Thanks!

As I've mentioned on my primary blog, Une femme d'un certain age, I'm in the process of lightening my load, culling the herd; in other words, I have too many bags and need to sell some.
