{Vintage Gucci Glamour}

When I die, bury me inside the Gucci sto'!
~
I love, love, LUUUURVES me some vintage Gucci. I must confess; collecting these pieces is one of my more lavish hobbies. And this year, I found me a supplier. Yes, being addicted to vintage Gucci is a little like being addicted to crack, I would imagine--possibly more expensive. A little leery at first since the purveyor of Gucci goods (@VintageGucciFinds on Instagram) lives in another state, but once I received my first product, I was completely SOLD! He guarantees authenticity, and his pieces are sublime.

He is a connoisseur of all things Gucci--a lover of the brand himself--and learns his clients quickly; he can now tell me exactly what I want. He's the equivalent of a Gucci concierge. I've purchased nothing but mint condition bags from him because he sells nothing but the best! And if the bag isn't already mint, he'll do his best to ensure the restoration embodies it. The proof is in the pudding. See for yourself:
My first purchase from my Gucci guy. . .this bag is older than I am. 
No, really. It's like, 35.

I can't wait to meet her!

The following bags I missed out on because 
failed to stalk @VintageGucciFinds IG more regularly
I was really hurt over this one!! It's gorgeous!

Then, there was this beautifully kept messenger tote. . .

And alas, the coveted bowling bag. . .

I love a few of these, I recently became a Gucci girl. By recent I mean in October when I was gifted my first Gucci. Prior to that I've been a Louis gal. I've not shopped any vintage handbags though, I love the thought of it though.

Thank you for your comment, Mimi!! Vintage Gucci bags are often better quality than the newer ones. Since you are a LV girl, I would definitely recommend seeking out some of their vintage pieces. :)
