The outside of this evening shoulder bag is made of very shiny black 1/8th of an inch sequins. It measures 6.5 inches top to bottom. The sides measure 7.5 inches across at the top and about 10 inches at the bottom. There is one zipper closure across the top and inside is an additional zippered pocket. The top zipper pull is marked FDC. The top zipper pull has some gray colored spots around the edge and I don't know if that's part of the natural coloring or if there are a few flakes missing. The zipper pull is hidden when the purse is closed so that shouldn't be visible. (Sorry, I'm not a purse person so I don't know about these things).
The shoulder strap chain measures 39.5 inches. That measurement is from where the chain attaches to each side of the purse. I don't know how that would equate to a 'hang length" because I'd imagine that would depend on how it is worn on the shoulder.
There are no sequins missing. There are no rips or tears.
I purchased it at an estate sale. The seller said it belonged to her mother but she never saw her use it. Her guess on a time frame was 1960s to 1970s.
Buyer to pay USPS delivery charges of $6.95. Shipping is from Nevada.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and a package cost the same amount regardless of where it was being shipped to in the United States. This year they went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. Now it is not possible to state a shipping cost and have it be valid regardless if the package is traveling 2 miles or all the way to the east coast. This latest increase has added an additional .46 cents to up to $1.43 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap and on top of that, this year Paypal started charging a currency conversion fee of 4.4%. International shipping now depends on the destination country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
