Giveaway time: Win a vintage Coach Willis satchel!

Sometimes lightning strikes twice.

Back in the spring, I came across a vintage Coach Willis satchel while thrifting in a Goodwill. Priced at less than twenty bucks, I bought it immediately. I've used that bag more than any other in my wardrobe, and considered it a true blessing from the thrifting gods.

Yesterday I went on another thrifting excursion, this time to a different store, and what did I come across? The exact same vintage Coach satchel, looking all lonely and abandoned behind the register.

I couldn't very well just leave it there. So I decided it would make a fantastic giveaway here on the blog.

coach satchel

This bag is exactly like the classic Coach Willis satchel here on the Coach website, though it does not have an adjustable shoulder strap. And it won't cost you $298. It has faded into a very rich brown and is in excellent vintage condition, with just a bit of darkening on the top handle and strap. There's also a pen mark on the inside flap, though it is not noticeable at all. I've given the bag a thorough cleaning and it really is gorgeous!

To enter to win this vintage Coach bag, simply do the following:
  • Follow me through Google Friend Connect (button is a bit down on my right sidebar.)
For additional bonus entries:
  • Follow me on Twitter;
  • and tweet the following about the giveaway: I just entered to win a #vintage @Coach Willis satchel from @dresscourage. You have a chance to win too! http://tinyurl.com/7ojpem5
That's it! Please leave a separate comment with each entry, including your email address so I can contact you if you win. US residents only. Giveaway ends on February 3rd. Winner will be drawn using Random.org.



This giveaway is sponsored by me. Coach has no idea who I am. I could fall off the face of the Earth tomorrow and Coach would never know.
