I have been selling off a large part of my handbag collection and am keeping just my rarest and most favorite ones. Mainly because of space considerations but also to free up funds for models I really want – like this one! It is a Mulberry Annie in Oak Darwin. Annies are very hard to find in Oak in good condition and this went for sale just up the road from me. I made an offer quite a lot less than they wanted and I won it. Yay! The last one on my list.
Mulberry Darwin leather has long been discontinued – I have no idea why as it was the best leather they ever did in my opinion. And it is now becoming harder and harder to find in good condition. I usually only like the Oak (though the Chocolate can be gorgeous and I do have a soft spot for Ginger) and have a Bayswater, a Roxanne, a Romilly and a Phoebe in Oak Darwin (not to mention a makeup bag and a wallet…). So this one is the last one I had on my wish list.
