Well as they say in the real estate business, the three most important things about the value of a property are location, location, location.
With Dooneys that would be condition, condition, condition.
This bag has been used quite a bit as evidenced by its scuffed and soiled piping. The inside looks better from the quick view I have of the inside.
What you have here is a probably a
Small Carpet Bag from the Carpet Bag Collection (they mainly vary by dimensions which you did not send.)
Selling for $185-190 originally, this particular bag, in the condition it is in (which would be a 6 on our condition scale) would be worth about $25-40 retail.
Here is the same bag in our store. It is in better condition than your bag but still, not so good, so we have put it in our Bargain Barn for $60 which includes free shipping.

  4. I bought this bag at a yard sale I loved it and knew I was lucky to get it so cheap the man had no idea that dooney & Bourne was a popular item, I’m not big on fashion myself I just love purses and knew this was worth money. It’s been almost a year and honestly I forgot all about it until I found it in the back of my closet when I was digging out things for a yard sale. If you could give me some idea of what I have and how much I could get out of this that would be so appreciated
