    Sad I need some help ASAP!!!

    So, I lost my house to a fire about a year ago. It was a total loss and we weren't able to get out anything. It has been so hard for me these past couple of months, I can't concentrate etc. I tried going to a psychiatrist but it really didn't help. To make a long story short... I lost my entire handbag collection, which was quite large, and now that the economy is so bad etc. I just can't replace it all that fast. I only have like 5 bags and I get depressed every time I go to change one out because I just can't get over it. My mom says that I can't think like that because I can't replace 19 years of handbags in one year, but Its been bothering me lately.

    So here's what I need help with, I fell in love with the Prada fairy bag and I am just dying for one. My boyfriend said he will pay up to $1000 for one for my birthday/christmas gift. The only problem is I can't find one for sale for that price!!! I found this one on IOFFER but i'm skeptical, what do you guys think? here is the link.... I have wrote back and forth to her my name is iheartmj... THANKS GUYS!!!

    I agree with Jess, most everything there is fake from what I've heard. And it's better to not have a bag at all than to have a fake, right?

    Don't worry, sweetie, I know it's hard to pick up the pieces after you've lost everything, but you'll get your collection back! Hang in there! :hug:

    ^ i think that if your gut instinct is skeptical then you should just follow that...

    i'm sorry to hear about your loss, it is really tough i am sure (i can't even imagine) but you have what is most important to you -- you and your loved ones are safe!

    omg Nicole, it's a good thing that you're okay! I am so sorry to hear about your housefire, and everything you lost.. gosh that must have been so scary

    about the bag: for that much why not look on ebay? i'm not sure about the authenticity of that bag, but i just don't trust ioffer so i would stay away.

    I am really sorry to hear about your loss.I can onlyimagine how hard it must be to start all over again. As for the bags, for $1000, I'd probably buy 2 cheaper bags, and build your collection up that way>:hug:

    I'm so sorry to hear that, Nicole! I hope you're doing ok.
    Well, the Prada Fairy bag is beautiful, and I hope you can find one. marilena does have a good point, though; you could get two other bags you with that, maybe?

    thanks, as for insurance... BLAH such a joke, they expect you to run out replace it all and then give them receipts within a month. With all going on it's impossible! As for the bag, I've looked on ebay tons! I even bid one up the other day, but it got too high at the last second I am thinking about maybe getting two instead, just not sure yet. I think i'll keep looking though and be patient. Thank you all for the comments though. It has been so hard for me, but I am trying to move forward. To be honest joining this forum has been helping me as well, when I'm thinking about it or bored I log on here and it just really turns it around!

    I was going to ask you about insurance. They replace what you lost, but if you can't afford to replace it, how do they expect you to buy it? It's like "can you buy this I'll pay you back," but if you can't pay for it in the first place, it doesn't work.

    SO sorry to hear about your losses in the fire! I don't trust iOffer. I would just keep checking of ebay or maybe think about getting a different bag (or bags!) Is there any other bag that you like that's within the $1000 range? That would totally stink if you wasted $1000 on a $20 fake!
