View Full Version : Previously Loved Bags (PLB)

08-03-2003, 07:20 PM
Just ordered my 4th Bihn bag, friends and wife think I am crazy... Wondering if it would be appropriate to use this forum to find homes for a couple of bags that will not get much use any more?

The lineage of my "stable" is a bit of a biography.
Big Brain= Grad School, Lots of stuff to haul
Petit Moussette (lime green)=Need a cool "messenger" bag to look hip for my internet type job
Eclipse=My Minimalist bag for 12" book
Empire Builder=Need to look a bit more "professional" yet also stand apart from the pack.

Would sell the Big Brain (Black) and Moussette (Lime) if approprate in these forums.

OK by me.
TOM BIHN INC. of course assumes no responsibility for the conditions of the sale; no warrantee.
Sale is between private parties, like on Ebay.

Well I guess they are officially "unofficially" available... email me at mike@mdhoefer.com if you are interested.

Thanks Tom. Love the your bags, can't wait till my girls are big enough for the "Basic Book Bag" perhaps a bit more color in those in the future?

Wow, that Lime Green Petite Musette is a collector's item! I can't believe you're willing to give it up.

Happy Selling!

Collectors item huh? Price just went up! kidding... In reality I think it will end up staying here with me. I can break it out on those days i feel particularly young at heart.

Might be cool to have an archive of past bihn bags.

Hey! How's it going selling those extra bags? Just curious...

Hi Darcy

I have not posted it eleswhere... not *that* motivated to sell. It's nice to have different bags for different moods.

It is...

I have a Tom Bihn messenger bag (one of a kind proto-type), a Tote bag, and a Smart Alec. That actually seems pretty restrained for someone who works here. Maybe I should buy more bags.

so... how about some kind of "mueseum" photo gallery for past bihn bags, or one of a kind prototypes?

That's a great idea. If you'd like to contribute pictures of some of your bags, we'd be happy!

There's a whole box of prototypes, old bags, etc upstairs here. It's pretty interesting to see how they've evolved.

We do have some of the older bags on display at the Seattle store.
