for sale / mansur gavriel bucket bags

I was overzealous in my online shopping and ordered two Mansur Gavriel large buckets, not realizing they’re final sale. Oops! Both bags are brand new with tags and comes with in its protective cloth bags. If you’re interested, please drop me a comment or email me (irenelikes at gmail). I would keep one if I didn’t find a saffiano one! And if you want a saffiano, keep on watching this page. Having watched it for a while, luck is not on your side…

There are many color, leather, and size variations (mini mini, mini, and large), which breaks down the ubiquitousness of the bag. While the vegetable tanned leather is more delicate, it is great for breaking in and developing a patina if you’re looking for character. There are a ton of reselling sites that have these bags already broken in and for under retail too, if you’d like: eBay, Poshmark, Tradesy, and TheRealReal. These sites also give you a sense of how these bags wear. The coated leather appears to be durable (TPF review) and lightweight and I really like the sand color. As an anti-bag zipper, it can be worn close enough to the body and deep enough to carry whatever I may want to carry.
