Do you collect any "designer" items? (handbags, sunglasses, shoes, etc)

If so, what is thedesigner item you collect?

How many of those items do you currently have?(approx)

Do you feel you may need an "intervention"? big smile miniJust kidding!!!

credit cardi saw a woman on tv the other day who said she had purchased over 300 Gucci handbags. The most she had ever spent on one bag was $7,000.  Her boyfriend (who lived with her) said he had never seen these 300 bags and where were they at? ....She had them hidden in different places all over the house so he wouldn't know about it. LOL...This is what made me wonder about how much people really like to have designer items or how far they will go sometimes to have them.. :D

If you don't collect...you don't have to put an answer down.  I know it's not everybody's thing. Just a curious question. :-)

  • i like coach, i collect handbags, purses...........but i've never paid full price i always wait for the sales but they are still pricey other than that my clothes and shoes are just normal everyday target/mall stuff.

    i really dont care about things but if i have the extra money i will buy myself something nice, my kids come first before i buy anything for myself.

  • I collect anything Gucci, Coach, LV, Chanel. The real stuff not immitation.
    I have 3 coach bags and 1 wallet.
    A pair of Gucci sneakers and one scarf
    I have a LV belt and bag.
    2 Chanel bags and a pair of earrings.
    No I dont think I need an intervention, the only thing I actually bought off that list was the LV belt that was $300, with my first paycheck in high school. The other stuff I got as gifts for birthdays

  • I have 6 Coach bags,2 Coach Wallets, 2 Prada bags, 1 Gucchi bag, 1 pair Prada sunglasses and more , I will have to look tomorrow.
    I didn't get ANY of this stuff when my girls were little/younger though. Most were gifts where my DH said "Here,(as he handed me money) Go get yourself another purse-You deserve things too"!!
    The first bag felt so guilty....I kept thinking days after "should I take it back"??. After a little while it dawned on me that all these years I've tried to make sure that everyone gets what they want. ,Xbox, Wii, Laptops, ipods....and so on. I literally wore WalMart clothes so my family could have more stuff. All I can say is....now it's my turn and it feels good to reward yourself for a lifetime of turning smelly socks inside out and being the last one in bed and the first one up every day. We DO deserve enjoyable things too!

  • I used to collect Coach bags. I have about 10. I still love them, but since having my first son 2 years ago I haven't gotten any new bags. I do have the itch though...
