I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I have never been part of any forum-but I decided to join yesterday because of my growing love for beautiful bags! My name is Marly and I am an Interior Designer in the Bay Area.(San Francisco) Before having my own business in design, I worked in the fashion industry (when I was younger and had more energy!) I have been married for 19 years and have three kids- 2 teenagers and a 12 year old: boy-girl-boy, (in that order). I don't have much of a collection (yet) I have two Carlos Falchis-a black Doctor's Bag and a small whiskey colored one with Croc. handles and detailing (my most expensive purse to date!) I have a kate spade and a Prada push lock bag, and a Francesco Biasia "Paradise Mix" from this season- I'm looking forward to taking that to Hawaii- we leave for spring break on Thursday! I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a recent purchase on eBay. It is a slightly "used but in perfect condition" Jimmy Choo Ross bag in creme. The seller is Linda*s***Stuff (has anyone dealt with her?) I've been reading your posts about eBay and I'm nervous! :wondering Anyway- I'm looking forward to being part of your forum!
