This doesn't count the ones you've sold or given away, etc. Only applies to the ones you still have in your possession. Give us a Ball park number and also include how many bags you have! Hope this wasn't a thread in the past, and if you don't want to share because it's insane, that's ok, but i'm sure i'm not the only one that's curious!

btw, i keep a tally, and i will post mine when i get home... promise.

Fayden,
This is a hard question! It's hard because I do not remember how many designer bags I owe and don't have a calculator nearby. However, I do think my bag collection is worth somewhere between $6,000-8,000 (U.S). I take good care of my bags, even the ugly ones.

You kind of got me thinking about what is the most expensive bag in my collection. Perhaps, I may do a post on that topic.

Um, I'm too afraid to actually tally. :shame:
I feel the same way Suli. If I total I may go into shock and not buy another for a few months and I don't want to ruin the economy.:amuse:

I don't actually know.. cause half of my bag is bought by my parents.. and my bag collection is very fluid since I trade bags with my mom.. I love her stuff so much. I really want to "GET", not trade, one of her Hermes, since I don't think I can trade with anything that I have now hahaha...

Well, I'm a bag collecting amature, so I'd say under 2000$ CAD (phew!)

Hopefully number will soon grow though ! :lol:

I have no idea where to start the tally :lol: Just the ones in my room have a total purchase price of over $20,000 (USD) though. Probably around 15 bags in here. I have a bunch in storage, I don't even want to know what it would all add up to :lol:

that's a good questions esiders. i just tally on what i paid for it. so it could be actually worth more but since they are used, i would think the value goes down, unless it is vintage. none of my bags are vintage, i think it needs to be ten years old to quality as vintage right? so i just go with what i paid for... =)

^^^its a tough question, and too much work to actually give a full answer :lol:

I did the tally of my partial based on what I paid for it. I have no idea what the exact resale value is for any of my bags.

For me its more a question of...."Do I really want to know the answer myself? How am I going to feel about that number? Lord knows its higher than I likely ever expected."
