What do you think is better ... having one really really expensive purse, or a few less expensive purses?

Well, I get bored easily, so I'd rather have lots of cute but not necessarily expensive designer bags than just one hellaciously expensive one that I had to use for everything.

of all the purses i spent money on...my favourite is one my mom knitted one afternoon three years ago for the hell of it

it isn't the cheapness that appeals to me tho, it's the originality
homemade can sometimes be better than blowing a bundle

I love homemade bags.. You can make as many as you want for little cash

most of the bags i've made have cost under 30 dollars, materials-wise

How about something that's worth a lot, but bought at a bargain price?

Personally I find that the best choice.

A few less expensive ones. But, if I was in love with something...

I like the idea of lots of different ones, because I like variety too! And then you can also match them according to your outfits.

But then with a really quality one you can make it your signature piece...

So I don't know. I say if one can't afford that many expensive ones they should splurge on one quality purse that will last many years and then get other inexpensive ones to match their taste and closet... I know that's not really what the topic is asking but it's a good idea anyway

for handbags, i think lots cheap would be better if you can't afford to spend $$ on expensive ones. unless you're older b/c i think older people should have classic bags.

anyway, i say lots cheap because comfort isn't really a factor as it is in shoes, where you pay for fashionable and comfortable shoes. also, if it were me, i would get really sick of using one handbag all the time.

I agree with Orochian. I enjoy the hunt for my bags and enjoy the savings.

Personally I've bought many brand-name bags at (or even lower than) the prices of mass-market chain labels. And no, they're not pathetically out of date, nor worn and torn either. It's all in how and where you hunt for deals.

I just bought a Prada denim messenger - large and flat, with black leather corner trims and thin shoulder strap - that was launched just a few months ago. It retails for around $350, but the one I bought through eBay was just a hair under $80.

I"m not kidding. It's even almost brand new and comes with all the original packaging - dustbag, cards, etc. I absolutely it and it'll be make a perfect summer bag, large enough even for school. It also doesn't hurt that I saved quite a mint by not having bought it in retail. I'm hopelessly cheap, and I'm proud of it.
