I saw on pinterest or something, someone used them as decoration.

Put up a bunch of hooks on a wall, artfully spaced. Or shelves. And placed the bags on display.

Pretty cool idea I thought!

Or maybe they did it with shoes.

Anyway either one would work.

Well if they are not dirty and still in good shape, I'd use them as display pieces. Get shadow boxes or inclosed glass cases and make a nice display out of them. You could also get a curio cabinet to display a few bags in if you have enough space for something like that.

My friend uses a linen closet, with the door removed, to show a stack of heirloom quilts. You could do this with anything colorful, like purses.
You could put a high shelf somewhere, like on a short wall, and display them.

Fill them with potting soil and turn them into planters.

after reading these suggestions I realize......there isn't anything you can really do with these bag but to sell them.

the post about using them as potters is hysterical........ lol I would never ruin my expensive bags that way.

Right? What a travesty to trash such beautiful handbags. At least selling them earns some of their cost back and someone else gets to enjoy them as much as you have.

Sell, or donate would be even better. Many women who may be in a tough position financially could use a handbag. They have agencies that help with interview attire and the bag could round that out.

Or sell half, Donate half. Everyone wins.
