PLEASE VISIT MY NEW BLOG DEVOTED ENTIRELY TO VINTAGE DOONEY & BOURKE HANDBAGS http://vintagedooneybourke.wordpress.com/
Is the value of a vintage Dooney & Bourke bag reduced if the label inside is cut? I have a large navy kilty with tags still attached that has never been used, but the label inside has been cut.
Tags removed or snipped? Often we will see tags that are snipped or partially or completely torn out of the bags. If a tag is snipped but is mostly still there, and you can see the registration number on the back, it probably indicates that the bag was sold at an outlet store – it is likely authentic but might have been an overstock or slightly imperfect bag.
outlet store = less value
overstock = less value
imperfect bag = less value
