    I thought that this was interesting. Honestly though, I would have thought that the trunks would have sold for much higher considering they were vintage Louis Vuitton and seemingly belonged to Marilyn. Maybe they were in poor shape.
     
  2. They must have been in bad shape to go for so low.
     
  3. WOW! :wtf: I can't beleive the prices were so low. I would have jumped on that in a heartbeat. I :love: :love: :love: LV trunks with a passion and the fact that they were MM's doesn't hurt. Are there any pics of the trucks at auction?
     

  4. I didn't see any photos. Hopefully, they were in bad shape though...since the price was ridiculously low. I mean considering her undies went for over a thousand a piece too!!
     
  5. lol a thousand a piece for undies :lol:

    I wonder how much to fix these two..
     

  10. Bags, Are these pictures of the MM trunks, that you have found online? They are cool.
     
  11. The trunks probably would have gone for a much higher price if they had her actual initials on them.
     
  12. You know, I didn't even notice that....I guess MM bought second hand too!:lol:
     

  13. Yes, they are MM trunks..
