    Default Need help finding a bag for wife.

    Hello, Iam trying to help my wife find a bag and perhaps you can help point us in the right direction. We found out searching ebay can be overwhelming. So we decided to give this forum a shot.

    We also found out all the nice ones we were picking out were designer, however we didn't know that they were until we opened the auctions up. So it seems nice bags are usually designer bags, nicer can also be defined as normal with simplicity, which is what were after. However we dont want to pay the designer price, no LV for sure, Coach seems to be reasonably priced but couldnt find much.

    We are looking for a large, soft leather handbag, light color with a zipper on top, simple design. We found a few nice ones but had a snap button rather then the zipper.

    Seems impossible to find, especially without too much noise.

    Thanks for any guidance.

    Happy new years to all.

    Thank you so much for your reply, we went out today to the Mall and really cant believe the outrageous prices of bags, I kept on asking for what the entire time, I seen so many ugly bags for $2500. I took a picture of one that had a gold skull medallion, it was in the same area as the $2500 bags but not sure if it was in the same price range. I said if my Kenth Cole leather Jacket was $300 for all that leather and is very well stitched then there is no need for anyone to use the excuse that its a good quality bag, maybe paying for the design as well but god they were ugly bags.

    We want to spend no more then $300. I made a joke today and told her how about we take my jacket apart and make a nice bag. :)

    Thanks for your reply back to our post.

    What about the Coach Legacy Leather Duffle? Regular price is $348. Some colors are on sale right now for less than $300. There are probably some on ebay too.

    What about Rebecca Minkoff or Kooba? Both are nice and you can get them for less on ebay.

    We are so glad we signed up to this forum, we were searching for Coach but missing words like "legacy" or duffle and simple terms helped narrow things down.

    I think with coach you get the most for your dollar, a bit pricey but not outrageously and the bags seem fine.

    We are thinking about this one "Coach 19889 Legacy Leather Duffle Mahogany" Ebay item number 261147577596

    Looks good., big enough, has the zipper she wants and price is ok and I think were doing it.

    What you think of this pick?

    Thanks again for the help.

    Bass, you are correct that bags are expensive and I agree that Coach is nice quality but also think Michael Kors is doing a great job with leather totes and bags and very popular. Not sure how old she or her style but Michael Kors is good for any age and Coach is a little more on the conservative side. They have nice Michael Kors bags at Nordstrom and Michael Kors outlet stores. I just purchased an oxblood color leather tote with light brown straps for my 26 year old stepdaugher for $200 and she absolutely loves it. The leather is a little bit softer vs. a lot of Coach bags which is important if it's an everyday bag, especially the larger sizes because once you fill it up it gets quite heavy. This tote (Michael Kors Jetset tote is $225 full prcie at Michael Kors and Nordstrom). I suggest staying away for the logo bags produced by both Coach and Michael Kors because they are typically for the younger girls and aren't nearly as timeless as a plain leather bag. Good luck!

    Being in a price range like that, i bet you wont regret if you buy a lady dior bag by christian Dior. it is soo famous that it was made for and carried by princess lady diana and it was her favourite. there are lots on ebay but be sure that you wont fall into the pits of fake bag. the last time i saw a fake sold for 2800 usd...so be sure you post it here to authenticate if you plan to buy from online. we need a clear view of the front abd back of the date code to authenticate so dont forget to ask the seller for detailed pics. good luck.

    ******* Christian Dior my personal collection **********
