Share a Train Wreck

  1. Maybe it's because I'm a pathologist, the idea of collected series of "specimens" is inherently appealing to me. That's probably my motivation for feeding the "Hall of Shame" thread. I thought it would be fun to start a thread where we collect all of these incredible train wreck that peeps try to sell on ebay. Here's a recent specimen:

    Authentic Hermes Kelly Bag up for auction. I hate to sell this but have to right now unfortunately. It is a Black vintage bag purchased in Paris about 10 years ago. I believe the bag dates to the early 70's. The bag has wear on the bottom corners, but aside from that in good condition. The handle is perfect. The inside of the bag is clean and in very good condition

  2. I agree, remember the one I posted ages ago, it was patched up and look like an elephant had stomped on it, but read good condition?
     
  3. Margie, I didn't know you were a path. This thread is a good idea-
    copy and paste instead of link to auction, so it doesn't "go away"
    when the auction is pulled.
     
  4. Yeah, and there was a bag on the Authenticate thread that I likened to Mickey Rourke...that one definitely belongs in this thread.
     

  5. I remember that bag - I searched the thread for "elephant" but just got those haati charms. Can you find that one?

    Then there was the 11K train wreck....
     

  6. Yes! Mickey Rourke

    This pre-owned HERMES KELLY handbag has been beautifully maintained.
    There is a small defect on the bottom right corner which has been repaired. See photo.
    Otherwise, in excellent condition. No scratches.
     
  13. I am affectionately calling this one the Alpo Kelly! :greengrin:

    Seller comments: "I had it reconditioned at the Hermes Store in New York City a year ago.
    The Bag has a new Lock and Keys.
    Wear on the corners.
    Hardware is still shiny with some scratches due to use. "
