    Question I bought this vintage Prada for $5 and need some help with the real price

    I have done EXTENSIVE research and have found nothing on this bag. I bought it way down in Kentucky out of an old barn. The owner was a model in the 1950-1970s and lived on this expansive farm down past Wilder, KY. She had passed and had an estate sale at her property. Well, I found a Prada bag and bought it for $5! The inside is marked, "By Prada for SAKS Made in Italy". I have contacted Prada and SAKS in NY, sent them pictures, and they have never seen a bag like it. The woman's daughter said her mom would travel all over the world for modeling shoots and would get one-of-a-kind gifts from designers. There was SOOO much stuff there, I should have bought more!
    I did get an email back in '09 after posting my bag on an antique website and someone had a green purse that was similar, but since then, I have found nothing. They also said they could find nothing on their item. Short of calling Italy to see if I could find any information, I thought I would contact an appraiser.
    Does anyone know anything about this bag? It is totally legit, considering this woman had treasures from ALL over the world. So many bags and shoes! Wasting away in an old barn! I have contacted a professional appraiser but wanted to see if anyone on here recognized the bag.

    Also, I found some information on the cruise ship....It was called the SS REX. It was an Italian cruise ship.

    I did a google search and saw that on another forum you found a lot more answers, but that was back in 2005. Is there something that has changed in 6 years?

    Wow, what a snarky remark! Where exactly is this mystery google post? Maybe you could post a link...it probably wasn't even me!

    Oh and if indeed it was, wouldn't the value change in 6 years. Again, why not be helpful, and post the link or tell me where this mystery post is!

    It actually wasn't snarky at all. I did do a google search and found somewhere that you were posting questions about the same bag, in which you found some answers. So I actually wanted to know if something had changed in the six years since you posted there.

    Also, we don't usually link to other forums here on TBF, but since you were so defensive about it, here it is:
    General Prada Questions - Page 10 - the Fashion Spot, and also on a site called Media Bistro.

    Same user name and same bag as you are posting here.

    Thank you for the link. Scary when you read something you wrote over 6 years ago! Show how much of a memory I have. That was pre-grad school and child. Yikes!
