It's just a Handbag

I am a subscriber to one of those internet sites that lets you know when sales are coming.
I have been looking for a new handbag recently especially now the sun has come out and no, none of my 50 other handbags will do.

To be fair I've been losing my handbags to a mighty, yet little fiend who goes by the name daughter.

This little demon has had the audacity to go through my handbags and choose her favourites AND ask me if she can have them?

My word! This wasn't in the parenting books.

No one warned me about this part of parenthood "What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine."

I'm only joking I don't mind giving her my handbags and anyway, I haven't got long before everything is own will be laughably un-trendy.

So back to the story. I received an email alert this morning about an online handbag sale taking place today.

I logged in with excited anticipation - 'Lets get some good bargains' I thought, credit card in hand. 
Then I saw the bags 'Bloooodyyyyyyy heeeelllllllllllll' I said as I dropped my credit card.How Much ???


 Louis Vuitton Vintage
£310 


OK not too bad if your a bit well off with no taste.





Hermes 
Women's Kelly Leather Handbag


£3548 




I always thought Hermes was a sexually transmitted disease. I'm confused!


And both bags were sold out !!!


Well you know what they say about a fool and her money...

£3548 would pay for a wonderful holiday or a car, I mean its just a handbag.

I'm not into fashion. when I see all the catwalk latest designs I cant help but think back to the 'Emperors New Clothes' Fairy tale.

Someone somewhere is having a right laugh all the way to the bank.

I'll tell you all a little secret, you can take £20 into our local market, get two bags that look very much like those above, though probably not quite the same quality, and still have enough money left over for a bag of chips and your bus fare home.
