What about in the middle? Certain bags I prefer to use frequently (Illovo, Papillon, for example) and certain bags I prefer to put away and only use once in awhile because it's discontinued/high maintenance (CB pochette, Miroir pochette, for example)

I consider myself a user because I really use my bags (just like any addict, LOL!). However, since joining TPF I am trying to collect different lines/styles (Only had mono, now have MC, Vernis, Damier, Denim). I guess I also have to say collector because I have way more things than I can really use!

Just a general question- in general- do you buy bags and keep them forever (collector by most definitions) or do you really feel the need to fight off the fact that another LV is sitting in hiding..... patiently waiting.... and in some opinions- unjustified when you know another LV lover would KILL to carry your bag.

My first LV was purchases in 99 so I've had LV for awhile. I have some bags that aren't really "in style" any more like my Looping and Bucket. Nevertheless, I don't think I'll sell my LVs. I just love having them. I have all my original old Coach bags too that you don't see around. I guess I am a collector and a pack rat. LOL

User all the way. I think it's ridiculous to spend $$ on bags that aren't going to be used and enjoyed. The exception is with evening bags or other specialty items.

Collecting, IMO, is for things like heirloom china or fine wines. Those can sit for awhile looking pretty and unused. As far as bags are concerned, use 'em!
