all this talk, never heard of them before this website, but today I bought a used LV cabas piano, from ebay, thanks to someone from this site bookmarking it. I was told I can replace the bottom if it is too bad. I paid $400 for that one. Then I bought the Mulberry bayswater in tooled green from BG for 60% off and got it for $400. and then I went to Bob Ellis and bought the Roxanne in dark brown.for $600. This will match my Chloe paddy in Chocolate that is coming from LVR and now I'm looking for a Balenciaga in black. Well that's it I guess. I have to keep selling selling selling on ebay to support this wonderful handbag habit that I have and I love. Everyday that I go out in public I feel special because in my town, no one is carrying what I carry. I'm earning a reputation as that mom with the incredible handbags with my high school daughter's friends.

I've always been an addict but you people are enablers! :biggrin: I've been pretty good though since I resisted all the temptation in Vegas last month. THAT could've been dangerous!

I don't know what I would do without this forum! I can't think of anyone I know that would obsess over handbags with me like you all do. Even my mom, who loves shopping, told me recently, "Can you stop with this purse stuff?!" after venting to her about deciding what to buy next :lol:

I'm mad that I could not get the choco brown Roxy from Bob Ellis for $600 - :sad: When I bought the oak (last week/online) the brown was still listed at full price...

BUT - I am happy for you Loren :smile: You are amassing quite a superb collection...

NO kidding! All I do now is obsess over the next bag I want because of this forum! It's great though, it has gotten me overly addicted to handbags now if I wasn't before!!!;)

I agree! Now I can never decided on a bag or its color there are too many choices I never knew existed. If I win the lottery I will just purchase them all and drive myself crazy deciding which one to use.
