mom's old coach bag


My sister Maggie and I were wandering around the Mission’s many vintage stores the other weekend. Both on the street and in the stores we noticed a big trend: vintage Coach bags. No, not the fabric ones with Cs all over them. The simple, smooth leather classics with turnlock or flap closures and long straps. These bags have made a comeback thanks to the popularity of the crossbody.  Maggie and I joked about raiding our mom’s closet to find her old Coach bags, and then we remembered that our younger sister Caroline had already taken the loot. On our walk back to my apartment we stopped at a sidewalk sale and spotted this small vintage Coach, which I promptly purchased for $5.
