Is it real? I believe so, but i’m not an expert and also not a huge Coach fan, so I can’t say. But it is a very nice leather tote with Coach looking buckles and Coach tags. It’s more worn than bags I usually buy, but a Coach tote is a rare find at the thrift store, especially priced under $15. If you would like this tote, email me at email@example.com. The prayer quote rock is included. TAKEN – thanks!
