Bamboo is hot this fall, and is never out of style on a Gucci handbag.
Gucci launched the Bamboo handle in 1972, discontinued it in 1975, and then reintroduced it again in 1989. Since that time, the Bamboo handles have been a classic touch on many beautiful Gucci bags.

So imagine my surprise when I came across this beautiful bag at a local Thrift Shop for only $3.00.
I had a few heart palpitations, broke into a sweat, and ran immediately to the cash register to make sure no one was playing a trick on me. I bought it on the spot and have been glowing every since!
Though it's sometimes hard to tell an original vs. a knockoff, I firmly believe this amazing find is the real deal! The leather is soft & supple, the hardware is pristine, it's marked and labeled and lined in a wonderful suede. I'm guessing the bag dates from the 1980s or early 90s.
I've already carried it several times & know this wonderful find will be a cherished possession for many years to come!
I'm linking up to the Thrift Share parties over at Selena's and Sophie's this week, so be sure to see lots of other fun finds there too!
