I had spent almost $1500 on an LV Speedy 30 when they first came out. I sold it a couple months later on Ebay for $1300. I couldn't complain. I had several Gucci's, LV's and Diors as well but I didn't pay for those..The rich ex did

My DH bought me the LV Artsy for our 40th wedding anniversary 3 years ago. I know the price he paid, however, after all these years, why not? Life is too short.

I'm a fan of Coach for quality (and attractiveness). I've had my everyday coach bag for over 25 years and it still looks good. I plan to buy the same bag from there classic collection in another color (the Coach classic city bag). It's just everything I want in a purse, holds everything I need perfectly, and looks good for years and years. I have two other Coach bags (large classic totes) that I've owned for over 20 years and they are everything I want in a tote and still look new. I've had other purses and totes throughout the years but the quality doesn't last like my Coach bags.

I get annoyed when they charge me 5 cents for a handbag.

Fortyish. I have no need for an expensive bag, and I don't like to buy leather anyway.

I will only buy at a discount place. It must be leather and have a lot of compartments for things. My ceiling is about $100.
In the summer, I have no problem with a cloth bag, as long as it has the compartments, so it is not a bottomless pit that I can't find things in.
I already have a closet shelf full of purses, so it's unlikely that I'll ever buy another one.

The most I've ever spent was $700 last year for a preowned Chanel caviar hobo with tassel made in 2005 and in pristine condition. The original retail price was $2,500. I bought it at Malleries (an online consignment store) and it's authentic. I've always wanted a Chanel but never thought I'd have one. For a pristine caviar Chanel, $700 is a STEAL, so when I found it, I pounced on it. The seller (Luxury Mart) said it had been on there for a while and they had just marked the price down. I guess no one wanted it because everyone goes after the classic quilted Chanel style. I purposely avoided that style because they are so immediately identifiable. I wanted something more under the radar. Mine doesn't have the big double "C" logo, only CHANEL imprinted into the leather on one side at the bottom in the same color so it blends in. Unless you're looking for it, you don't notice it. The quality is AMAZING -- much better than brand new from what I hear.

Anyway, that was a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, and I'll never spend that much again. Sure, $700 is outrageous for a handbag IMO, but as I said ... for a barely-used caviar Chanel that's large enough to hold all my stuff and then some, that's a rare find. And I'm thrilled it's now in my small collection of six bags. It gets PLENTY of use.

It lives! The thread lives!

I've never spent a great deal of money on a purse, though it was a great deal of money at the time. In the 1970s (adjust for inflation) I paid $150 for a lovely little vintage bag which caught my fancy. I still have it and use it once in a while.
