Here is another Junco, this one is made from an authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Pochette Cosmetic.  It's been thoroughly cleaned and is ready for a new owner!!

The Monogram is in good shape, but there is tiny cracking at the back along the zipper. The vachetta side tabs were worn so they were cut off. The interior Vuittonite (see below) was super sticky, so I completely removed it, leaving the bare canvas. The zipper is fully functional.  I've added dark brown braided leather fringe to the front of the bag, giving it a fun flair. Highlighting the fringe is a beautiful brass LV "foot" that I've repurposed from another bag.  To make this a crossbody, I added gold D-rings to the back and attached a thin dark brown leather strap that is 47", thereby making this the cutest "running to the store bag" ever!! 

This little Junco measures is L 6.75 x W 4.5 x D 2.25" and is sure to be your next favorite bag! 

This bag will be shipped with a dust cover (either organza or cotton) and will ship Priority mail or UPS.

Please note:  This is a vintage bag, and will show some wear.  I try to call out everything, but please make sure to look at the pictures!!

About Vuittonite:  Prior to 1997, Louis Vuitton lined many of its bags with a vinyl-like material known as Vuittonite. It was used (and patented) by Louis Vuitton because its resistance to water makes it easy to clean. Unfortunately, when exposed to high heat or humidity, Vuittonite begins to deteriorate and peel away from the edges of the bag. Over time, it becomes increasingly sticky, forming a residue (which, in extreme cases, is black in color) that transfers to anything placed inside the bag.
