Customer Question
Would you be able to...
Would you be able to tell me anything about the two purses I have? First one is red with a tags on the inside saying
"a lifestride handbag"
and a stamp on the inside bottom that says
"simulated leather 71293 020222"
Gold clasp type no zippers. With a flap type closer. The other is labeled as "a naturalized handbag" stamp on inside says
"Simulated leather 43047 731219"
It is like a cre***** *****te Brown color or darker tan and it opens from the top. It's shaped almost like a triangle and has suede patches of material on the front of the purse. Any help you could give me would be great. Thank you in advance
