I think I have mentioned how I go to St. Vincent De Pauls, our local thrift, and get bags for a quarter each. This week I went and there were a ton to go through. I got four bags. I just got finished cutting off the hardwared from the third one. Now, I never looked at these close at all as I had minutes before I had to be at work. If it shined pretty with hardware I just grabbed it. Well, bag number four is an Etienne Aignier, all leather, black and really soft, and in PERFECT condition. It looks like it was never used. Its gorgeous. So I just went to the site and a similar one is 345.00!! Yay, she scores. :humble: This will be nice for winter. :gong:

Wow! After cleaning out estate houses when I worked in the law office I would see so many things like that still in boxes with gift tags. The recipients were saving them for good. But, they never get used. It has turned me into someone who uses my Waterford sugar bowl every day. I would hazard a guess that is how your bag got there. I love love that brand.

Great find!

Awesome score Bunny!!! I've also seen some great things at Goodwill, Estate Sales, etc. that are still tagged. Sad. I know you'll enjoy your bag!
