I recently found a very nice vintage-ish Dooney & Bourke crossbody bag with a matching wallet at a thrift store for $12.50. The bag is very well made, but it does not have a “made in” label inside. I can’t tell if it was removed or never there at all. The wallet does have a white cloth label that says “Made in China”, but nothing in the bag. The bag is green and tan with a combination of leather and suede and has black interior with 3 compartments. I’d love for you to take a look at it and tell me what you think of the pair. Did I do good for $12.50 or did I just throw money away?
