Here is another adorable Junco! This bag is made from an authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Bucket Pouch (this is the longer 27).  It's been thoroughly cleaned and spruced up and is ready for a new owner!!

This bag's Monogram was in great shape so I hand braided a red leather lace on the top edges to give it a "Valentine" flair.  The inside was a VERY sticky Vuittonite, so I had to scrub it all out, leaving a clean flannel-like interior. The leather zipper pull at the end was missing, so I shortened the overall zipper and added a flashy gold end to it.  The front left corner was starting to pull away from the side, so I added some blingy crystals to ensure it stayed intact. And let's face it, they're super cute!  I also re-coated the edges with an edge coat so they look brand new!  I finished by adding some tiny gold D-rings to the sides and a fun chain (47") to make this a cute crossbody.   

This little Junco measures is L 7.75 x W 4 x D 0.75" and is perfect for throwing a few cards and cash into ... throw it in a larger bag, or carry it into the bar to give your outfit a fun flair!!

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. If your Vuittonite is starting to get sticky, try putting some talcum powder inside, lightly coating it.  It works!!!
