Is this FRYE Belle Bohemian Satchel fake?

I purchased this bag on Poshmark and after looking through the photos again, I started second-guessing it. By then, it was too late to return it because I had changed my mind. Now I have to prove the item is not as it was described, if it in fact is not authentic.

What leads me to believe it is not authentic are the following: (Photos to be added.)
-The inside label says MADE IN CHINA and from what I read FRYE does not manufacture handbags in China.
-The outside of the bag has obvious signs of wear, and the ad describes the bag as gently used, but the inside is pristine.
-The majority of the leather of the bag is soft and supple, showing obvious signs of wear, but the handles/ straps feel rigid and new and even creak or sound new.
-Is the wear and tear on the purse placed purposely to look gently used?
-The interior zipper handle has the thin plastic covering on it, just like a brand new counterfeit bag would have on the handles, etc.
-There is a Post-it note inside of one of the pocket that says “Vintage FRYE.” Is that a note that the seller had for herself (which is highly unlikely, as she deals with these bags 24/7), or are the interiors made new to install in a used or counterfeit bag?
-I just cannot get enough information online about what an authentic bag with this name looks like. Everyone I find looks just like this, but not on the Frye website.

Thank you for any ideas! 🙏🏼 💋
