I am so excited -- I just have to share!
I was at our local GW store the other day. Browsing for this and that. What did I come across - butr a beautiful dark red leather Tod's bag!!!
Couldn't believe my luck. It's a type of satchel/shopper. The outside is unmarred in any way. Inside has a tiny bit of wear, but not much.
Normally, the better bags, such as Coach, etc., the store will put a price of $25 or $30 on, but this one was marked as the usual ones - $4.99!
Well, I recognized the Tod's name from shoes and knew this was a good name. But I looked on line and saw that bags of a similar size and design - new, are selling for $900 up to $1500 and even more!
Yippee --- finally --- a real treasure!!!
Didn't mean to put a spoiler --- got so excited --- I hit a wrong button!! LOL!!!

You hit the jackpot! Love browsing through thrift stores. 27 years ago I found a Chanel quilted bag for $25. It has been authenticated to be the real thing. I passed this on to my DD and she carries it with her to special occasions.

Thank you all for your replies and for sharing your wonderful deals! I don't think I ever got such a great item in a thirft store before. As I said, I knew the Tod's name and knew that this was great quality, but really didn't know how expensive these bags were until I went on-line. I was totally shocked!!! I am certainly going to enjoy carrying this bag and will be proud to show it off. Though, of course, I am not going to reveal to all how much I paid! LOL!!!

Great find. Obviously, the store was not familiar with Tod. Sometimes it pays to go the second hand stores and Goodwill as a lot of wealthy women get tired of their clothes, etc. and donate. Enjoy your bag.
