Around $20-40 and I find them much better looking as the expensive designer bags with their ugly logos and motives.

I wouldn't even spend more on bags if I would have the money, because I would be worried all the time it gets stolen and then all my ID's and CC's are gone.

Not worth it.

Anywhere from $20 (e.g. hand crocheted from a Caribbean art faire) to $2000 (e.g. a Ferragamo). I usually fall in love with a bag before looking at the price. It is like buying a piece of art. I'll spend money on a classic, timeless structured satchel or tote - Ferragamo, Prada, Hermes. Unfortunately for my wallet, I am partial to those 3 handbag designers. I may treat myself someday to a certain Hermes bag - but that could be years from now.

One thing I don't like is obvious exterior logos (or trendy "designer identifiable" patterns/letters - e.g. Burberry, LV, Coach, Chanel C) on bags. E.g. You might only know I am carrying a designer bag if you look closely at the hardware or see the interior. I like to stick to the classic designs, colors, leathers/alligator...

More expensive bags would go unnoticed to 99% of the population. Your CCs and IDs can be just as much a target in a less costly purse.

Default Now? Probably $15.

I have spent as much as $60 for a handbag/laptop bag but it wasn't all of that.

My current purse is a crossbody style with zippers all over the front. I LOVE this purse and get compliments on it everywhere I go. I bought it at Ross in Las Vegas for $19.99. I'm still carrying it 18 months later!

I am admittedly frugal, and I have also found some great purses in the clearance bins at DSW that were expensive at one time. I just don't want to pay that designer price.

I said I would never pay for one but I saw one at garage sale for a quarter. That was too good to pass up so I bought it.

They last forever, their resale value is great (I just sold a 4 yo bag on ebay for more than what I bought it for retail), and coach will fix or replace anything basically forever.

I also like their classic styles, I know their "trendy" stuff tends to be more popular but they still make the classics as well.

I don't usually spend much on handbags though I have a lot of affordable handbags, but recently I decided to splurge on a designer's handbag ( Tivoli GM ) which is around 2,000 US Dollars.

How much would I spend on a handbag? Not more than the money I have to carry in it

Five hundred dollars on a butter-soft, logo-free, black leather backpack-style purse about ten years ago. It's still beautiful, and I use it as an everyday winter bag. It was one of the best purchases I've ever made.
