Sometimes you see something you want, instantly. It is like love at first sight. Do you recognize the feeling? I have had this feeling ever since I saw a photo of this....
A bag! A Mulberry Bayswater! In Chocolate Brown.
I have to admit, I have an expensive taste LOL.
These babies are € 1.050 if you buy them in a regular Mulberry store. If you buy them in a Mulberry Outlet they are, at least over here, around € 800. If you want to pay less, you have to buy second hand or pre-loved. The less you pay, the more the bag has been loved ;-)
These bags are very popular, also amongst the manufacturers of fake bags. I found out in the last couple of months that it is pretty hard to distinguish a fake from a real Bayswater relying just on some photo's. Asking for detailed photo's of the hardware can help though. Providing the seller responds to the request, sometimes they don't. A little while ago I won an auction on Ebay for a much loved bag, but it never arrived. The seller never even contacted me. I had to ask Paypal to return the money to me, which they did!
I prefer a second hand bag. Not just for the price, although that is a very important point. But also because I don't have to worry about staining a brand new bag, somebody already worried about that for me. If I bought a new bag it would probably end up in the closet because of that fear.
Now tell me, am I nuts?
So...if you happen to have a Mulberry Bayswater laying around you want to get rid of, send me an e-mail ;-)
