    sold on ebay.

    22% - Percentage of women who would splurge on a handbag if
    they could choose only one designer item. Only 9% would
    choose shoes.

    "Man Purse" - The name might have negative connotations now, but
    back in the 1800s, purses were small bags used to
    hold coins. Only men carried them.

    21 - Number of bags Marc Jacobs has named after models, including the
    "Daria" (Werbowy), "Karolina" (Kurkova), and "Christy" (Turlington).

    had swung her handbag at him.

    $24,000 for a bag on eBay? For some reason I thought it would be more. It probably doesnt include the Louis Vuitton Luggage. I believe I have seen it for more.
    22% of women choose handbags - I am definitely in that catagory

    21 bags named after models for marc jacobs? I always wondered how many there where.


    Very interesting info, thanks for posting :D
