Last month in Salida, Co, inside the vintage/consignment shop called Wanderlust, I spied a leather bag. I adored it. It turned out to be eighty dollars. Good lord. It was a leather Coach bag.Today on Main St. in Nashua, at a new consignment shop on the block with the Vietnam Noodle House...I was searching for school satchels. The owner, who opened a month ago, was rummaging frantically through boxes in the back for me, and carelessly flung aside this lovely, buttery chocolate brown fold over satchel hand bag. I snatched it up. It's the perfect profile, the perfect proportion. Very vintage looking. It was four dollars, and pure leather. So of course I had to have it. But..when I got home, I realized it had "COACH" leather stamped/embossed into the matching leather tag. Good grief. Really? ? ?
