My Coach Handbag Collection

I started shopping for a Coach bag early in the year (2014) and found a cute bag at a thrift shop near home and later after purchasing it found out it was a fake Coach bag.  I was very disappointed.  I ended up with another fake Coach bag that I purchased on ebay and decided to learn what to look for and if I wasn't quite sure I'd ask for help with authentication at the purse forum.  So these are the bags I've bought so far this year and they are all authentic Coach handbags.

Coach Hampton Black Leather Hobo Clip Shoulder Bag Handbag 8A67

Found this poor dull dried out begging for conditioner leather Coach bag on ebay a few days ago.  The pictures were not great and didn't even show the inside or the creed patch.  I did some research and didn't see anything wrong with this bag at all other than it just needed to be loved and conditioned.  Only 2 photos were posted and it was up for auction starting bid at $18.00.  Put this bag on my watch list and waited until the last few minutes and put in my bid for $18.00 and won the auction.  When my husband opened up my box that came today he even said eww it's ugly.  Yup it was dull and dried out.  I conditioned this bag with a few good coats of conditioner and watched the leather come to life again.  It started to shine and get soft.  It's in mint condition and might have been used only a few times if at all.  Sometimes it's worth taking a chance.  This bag new retailed for  $328.00.  Some handbags smell like perfume or soaps.  This bag smells like real leather.
COACH Hampton's Large Hobo Handbag Style:8A67 Retail $328.
