Rated 5 out of 5 by rena j this bag rocks
I was also one of those that waited for this in "as is" due to price. I have many Dooney "as is" bags and I have not had any issues to date. I got this in the Dusty Blue. I love it. I am short (under 5 FT tall) and even though the bag is large it is not overpowering. The compliments I get on it are even better. I would consider it in another color if one comes available that I like.

Wow ... did I win big on this one! Navy/tan Kristen 'as is' was perfect, brand new and almost $100 less expensive!! I had no idea how this would go, but what did I have to lose? Next time, I will go for the elephant color ... so rich and beautiful, but for now, I consider the navy/tan tote a HUGE win for moi!

I 've purchased many "As Is" items in the past and was always happy with my items when they arrive. I have been wanting this Kristen Tote in the Elephant color for a really long time so when I found it in the "As Is" section I snatched it right up. I have read about all the horror stories from others about their "As Is" purchases but never thought it would happen to me. I received my Elephant Kristen Tote the other day and was so excited however, when I opened up the box and pulled out the bag it looked like the bag was over a year old. There were numerous whitish stains on the leather which looked like spilled and dried milk to include the stain going into the outside pocket and there was a very large pen mark or marks inside of one of the pockets in the bag which looked like a pen had leaked in the bag. The leather piping and handle was worn, dull looking and scuffed and scratched. Also, the dust bag was missing. Some women have the nerve to buy a bag and then decide to return it and think that they can keep the dust bag or goodies that come with the bag. If the bag were in better shape I would have kept it because despite the flaws it is a very beautiful bag. I will wait for another Kristin Tote in Elephant and order again and hopefully will have better luck. This one is already on its way back to QVC.

I waited too long during the presentation and missed out on the elephant color that I wanted... Then I found it as a return. I was soo impressed and happy with this purchase, I carried it to every room I was in just to look at her.. It is a little heavy and is a big purse. I travel a lot so will use as my carry-on and will do so very proudly for many years. Just as I like my dooneys..classy but understated.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimberly52 Another Hit in AS-IS!
I missed the original showing of the Kristen Tote! I wanted her in black, so I checked & checked & rechecked until one in my color came in, so I grabbed it! It just came today and when I opened the box, I thought it was brand new! I love my Dooneys and usually try and order as-is due to the cost. I know some of you Ladies have had trouble with missing items, etc and I've only had a few hiccups, otherwise all is well, like today! The bag came wrapped and had her tags. I even got a brand new dust cover! It doesn't even look like she's been carried; not a scratch on the outside and the inside still smelled new! Kristen will join my other 2 totes because she is a keeper! She looks very rich in the black with the beige leather trim! I love her and it looks like she will hold the things I need to carry. I'm so happy with this As-Is purchase! Thank you QVC for these beauties at affordable prices, even the as-is bags!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plums mom A Great Purchase
I purchased this black handbag As-Is (my 2nd as is). I was so pleased with the condition and the purse itself- it's exactly what I envisioned and it's exactly what I wanted. If you want a large bag, then this is for you. Nice pockets inside and out. It did not come with a dust bag or registration card, but that's not deal breaker for me. It was in excellent condition, wrapped properly, appears unused and delivered ahead of time. I have NO complaints at all. This handbag is big (which as a mom I love!) it's light weight, smooth feel and I can wear on my shoulder comfortably and stylish. I would buy again. If I could change one thing, I'd change the snap for a zipper. Thank you QVC -As Is!! Love you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by RubyButterfly WOW!!
This bag is gorgeous!! I love everything about it, and especially the deep side pockets (great for keys, phone, umbrella or water bottle), the beautiful shape of the handles, and the slightly wavy top, which makes it so stylish, not like a typical boxy tote. The smooth leather trim is a brilliant contrast to the soft sheen of the pebbled leather. When I loaded it up with books and a 3-ring binder and all my personal belongings, it looked even more amazing and kept its beautiful shape with no problem. I am only 5' 2" and the handles rested comfortably on my shoulder with my items in the bag. I own several large Dooney tote bags and don't feel overwhelmed by the size of this one. In fact, I appreciate that it has so much room to fit everything comfortably. The Dooney quality is really on display in this bag. It's pricey, but so worth it, and I cannot wait to show it off! If you are looking for a large workhorse tote bag with the look of a beautiful handbag, I highly recommend this one!
