Paula Says:

"The Large Horseshoe bag is my personal favorite and it must be the fave of most of the original owners too because we rarely are able to get these and when we do, they have often been really loved and used a ton! This bag has managed to avoid getting any major scrapes on the outside and there are no ink marks or makeup stains on the inside. One of the strap keepers went missing along the way, but that won't slow this old bag down !

"(Oh, and a very good customer of ours received a Taupe bag from us and said how much nicer and warmer the Taupe color is that she expected. She was expecting more of a bland grayish bag and instead got a bag with a warm, rich and interesting color. Yes, taupe is a vague and broadly used term and has a bad rap in general yet Taupe is the official name given to this color of leather by Dooney & Bourke. I've heard some people call it Mushroom but that is a darker, browner Dooney color.)"
