    Once again, I'll see if there's interest here before advertising elsewhere. These bags all belonged to my mum, who enjoyed shopping ........ :)

    1. Radley "At the Seaside" signature bag from 2007. This is one of the best of the picture bags, with the picture almost entirely composed of stitched-on leather and very little painting (unlike later bags). It measures 14W x 4D x 9H (13 including handles) inches and is in very good used condition. There are a couple of small scuff marks on the back and a scuff mark near the base on the back but you have to look hard to see these. The lining is in yellow micro-cord - the same colour as the exterior leather - and there is a small amount of "I've been used" staining at the top but it's otherwise in excellent condition. This comes complete with all its original accessories - coin purse, key strap, blue Radley dog hanger, leather and metal Radley label inside, and pink dust bag. £135 including RMSD

    2. Radley "Away Day" signature bag from 2005. A much sought-after bag that is now quite difficult to get hold of, the picture of this one consists entirely of stitched-on leather. It measures 13W x 3D x 8H (12 including handles) inches and is in excellent condition. There are two tiny scuff marks on the back but you have to look really hard to see them. The lining is burnt orange micro-cord and is unmarked. This comes complete with original accessories - burnt orange Radley dog hanger, key strap, internal leather and metal Radley label, and eau de nil dust bag. £150 including RMSD SOLD to Racer09

    3. Radley "Retail Therapy" signature bag from 2006. Another very popular and sought-after bag, this measures 14W x 4D x 9H (14 including handles) inches and is in excellent condition. There is one tiny scuff mark on the back (very difficult to spot) and a small scuff on the base which is also difficult to see. The lining is cream micro-cord with some slight discolouration at the top but otherwise excellent. This comes complete with original accessories - light mink Radley dog hanger, key strap, coin purse, internal leather and metal Radley label, and pink dust bag. £140 including RMSD.

    4. Radley "Tearaway" signature bag from 2008. This one measures 14W x 4D x 9H (13 including handles) and is in excellent condition. I've looked hard and I can't find any scuff marks at all on the outside. The lining is pink micro-cord with some very slight discolouration near the top (difficult to see) and otherwise perfect. This comes complete with original accessories - pink Radley dog hanger, key strap, coin purse, internal leather and metal Radley label and pink dust bag. £160 including RMSD.

    5. WITHDRAWN TO ADVERTISE ELSEWHERE

    There are several other Radley bags as well but I'll see how these are received before advertising them.

    Payment by BT please. I'll consider offers for multiple items but if you check elsewhere you'll see that these prices are quite fair and competitive. Each of the Radley bags is a collector's item!

    Pics will be attached in forthcoming posts ......

    ...... and thanks for wading your way through this lot if you're still here :D

    EDIT
    More Radley bags added, see post 15

    Given the prices being asked elsewhere and the condition, pretty much as stated although you could try a close offer :)

    It's Sunday and the sun's shining :clap:

    Try an offer that's reasonably close to the asking price and you might get lucky before I advertise these elsewhere :)

    Over 300 views and no offers :eek:

    I've been as realistic as possible when describing these bags but they really are in almost new condition. The prices are reasonable in comparison with those being asked for the same bags elsewhere.

    It's beginning to look as though I'll be inflating Fleabay's coffers even more in the not-too-distant future .....

    Up again. Now I'm feeling stubborn :D

    I might add details of the other Radley bags either tonight or tomorrow morning, just to get some reaction :laugh:

    I might be interested in the small cream one (£50), just a quick question have you got proof of purchase for it or something so I can certify its genuine.

    Please do not take offence, just want to be 100% sure

    Hi, no offence taken. There's no proof of purchase but I can guarantee the bag - and all the others - is 100% genuine. All these bags would have been bought from Beales of Bournemouth, or possibly Dingles (part of the House of Fraser group) in Bournemouth. Both stores are authorised Radley stockists.

    Thanks for the offer. Just to clarify the colour, it's somewhere between a dark cream and a very light mink - I'm not sure if that might have any bearing on your interest. I'd let it go for £45 inc.

    Ok that's not a problem, £45 is fine.

    Could you PM me with all your details including Postal address and telephone number in case of any problems.

    Thanks

    Any movement on the price of the signature bags?

    SWMBO loves her Radley but its a bit rich for me at the moment.

    I can more than appreciate the new cost, I have been there.

    Fleabay is flooded with them at the moment which dont seem to be doing anything.

    Yes, the flood on Fleabay started at the weekend, when it was zero insertion fees - which is why I decided to wait a bit longer before going down that route :D

    An offer of asking minus £20 (the approx. cost of the auction route, although I'd probably put a slightly higher price on them there) might secure.

    A slightly lower offer for At the Seaside, which was mum's favourite and most used bag (usually polished between uses though) would be carefully considered :)

    Hi. Yes, it's still available - I'm still not quite ready to go to Fleabay :)

    The measurements are W 28cm x H 22cm (33cm including handles) x D 10cm. I'll take £70 including p&p but I'm afraid that's the lowest. It's so new it's still got the silica gel packet inside!

    While you're shopping, why not think about one of those signature bags too - they're bargain prices for extremely collectable items :devil::devil::devil:

    im really looking for one that i can carry on my shoulder or across my body. Youve put this as a "Grab Bag" -ive got one of those, and i always worry abotu muggers just snatching it (esp as i walk with a stick =easy target!).

    Theres one other one on the forum that im kinda interested in.
    Dont normally go for green, but it looks like its quite a dark one.
    Only problem is the price :( I cant make it to £70 altho i can totally understand you asking that price, but like someone said above theres tons on the bay that are going for less. I could really only go to £50 and i know thats kinda insulting, so sorry, gonna have t leave this puppy for another home :(
    GL with the sale :)
    And thanks for the help :)

    ETA: I know i put £50, but ive jst moved house so you can imagine that money is flying out left right and centre, so id be wanting to pay no more than £35-40 which i know is a ridiculous price and i would nt expect you to even look at it (apart to lugh!) but i just wanted you to know i do know its a low ball pirce :(

    No problem. As you guessed, I wouldn't accept such a low offer (what appears to be an identical bag is currently on offer "elsewhere" with a starting price of £120 which is just plain ridiculous as they didn't even retail for that much originally) BUT..........

    There's another Radley bag I only found after I finished taking pics last week - or rather after the camera battery ran out :laugh:

    It's a shoulder bag that can easily be worn across the body, W 30cm x H 20cm x D 5.5cm, and is a pinky/creamy/beigy colour. It's in very good condition externally - just a small scuff mark on the back of the bag and excellent internally. I'd let it go at £40 inclusive (but no offers at that price). I'll put up photos if you're interested.
