WOW. An old Kirby bag, in only fair condition, sold for over $250. I really don't get it. I wonder what my NOS black, gray, and gray speckled bags would do.......

The bag is in good shape. One in pretty bad condition sold for 162.
The bag you are wondering about for about 360 a month ago.
Crazy money for bags.

OMG Charlie, I am amazed what people are paying for vintage vacuum items lately. I can only imagine that your NOS vintage Kirby bags could possibly be your retirement my friend LOL. Any news on Falyn yet???

I won both bags mentioned in this thread lol. Trying to find ones to complete some of my Kirby’s. Loads of people watch these and it becomes a frenzy. I have the money but I still laugh at how much they go for. I’ve noticed that if the bags are sold alone they go for much more than if they’re attached to a vacuum. I saw one with an original bag the other day and some accessories sell for less than thirty bucks.. kinda drives me nuts lol. I bidded on a brand new one but it went for way more than I thought.

Pics don't do it justice. The bag you bought for 162 this is in better shape.
It's not wrinkly just had things on it from washing it. I'll take a better pic but on second Pic is one from ebay I compared it too. This bag is from 515 to 562. I'm thinking 519 560 561. I was going to put on ebay but I'll send you messages of price. The logo is good just Pic some reason looks fuzzy. I'm no photographer.
