PLEASE VISIT MY NEW BLOG DEVOTED ENTIRELY TO VINTAGE DOONEY & BOURKE HANDBAGS http://vintagedooneybourke.wordpress.com/
I really like this bag. It is the AWL drawstring sling in Navy. It is listed as small. Does it come in any other sizes?
If you look on on the Drawstring Handbag Page
you will see Small and Large bags, so yes, this does come in Large.
Dooney & Bourke often uses the word Small just to differentiate between various models of the same bag – the small bags are often quite roomy. Use the dimensions to tell you if the bag seems small or large to you !
And, when do you replenish inventory?
We replenish inventory weekly This week we will be adding backpacks. New bags show up on our “new items” page
so you can look at that every so often to see what we have just listed.
My main question is about the price. I see some bags listed for $275 when it states that it retailed for $265 in 1996. Why would a used bag cost more than a new one?
The prices includes shipping to the US. These are vintage collectible bags because they are the ones made in the USA. Dooney & Bourke bags are no longer made in the USA. The vintage All Weather Leather bags that we carry were made in the USA.
What about the rating system?
