    I bought a lovely bag at a consignment store recently. It still had it's tags on it. My brother, who is a no-fashion, backwater town kind of guy even said, wow, that's some bag. I can't pay big money for stuff like that.

    PB - which consignment stores do you find those? I keep meaning to head over to West Van, because I heard the ones there are awesome, but I haven't made it yet.

    I'll always open a handbag thread. That black Kooba would fit in very nicely!

    I've noticed there are lots of ultra fab folks from Vancouver here. What does one call someone from Vancouver? Vancouveran? Vancouverite?

    Vancouverite, from an ultra-fab kinda gal.

    I am a purse fanatic but I have never paid full price for a designer bag. There are only two consignment stores left in West Van -- the best one recently closed because the landlord upped the rent -- but the other two aren't bad. Caliente in Ambleside is pretty good, and then there's one in Dundarave, can't remember the name, but it's the only one. I got a Kate Spade bag that was virtually new for $100 at the one that closed.

    Craigslist isn't a bad place to get good bags if you're quick and know your stuff. My best finds are at thrift stores, but you have to be lucky and go a lot and I don't have time right now.

    That's for sure!

    My mom gave me her large Noe LV Bucket bag. Damn thing has a drawstring which is really annoying. Great and comfy shoulder bag though. I read on the LV site that it was originally designed to transport five bottles of champagne. Even if it isn't true, it sounds good.

    I couldn't think of a better use for a purse!

    I have too many bags. Lately have been buying utilitarian bags made out of beautiful leather. Keep thinking that the perfect bag will help organize my life. So I buy another messenger bag or tote.
    Drive a car, drive a boat, drive a plane. What does it matter? As long as I'm drunk!
