Henk – not a suitcase

September 1, 2007


Practicality by definition is something easy and logical. Henk is that in everyway except in price. This non-suitcase goes for $28,000 USD. Yep that’s not a typo, twenty-eight thousand dollars. Obviously for the ultra rich. So if you love practical bags this one is really that except for the price, and for that much it better butter my bread and change my baby’s diapers. Well maybe it won’t change diapers but it was designed for sitting on it if need be.

Your very own crystal poodle

August 9, 2007

poodle bag

My guess in the economy of things, is that the supply out numbers the demand on this. This bag falls deeply into the NOT practical category. Plus I have many other crystallized animals I’d rather spend $4695.00 on.

Skull and crossbones purse

December 8, 2006

Mini Hopper

This “Jolly Hopper” mini purse is very practical and fashionable. But the cool thing about this bag is that it says something. But it doesn’t say anything until someone is holding the bag. Yes of course other bags “speak” similarly but I want to make this case unique.

Let’s pretend a 30-something sophisticated woman walking out of tall expensive office building was carrying this bag. You might assume that she is not to be triffled with in the boardroom and wants people to know that. Or maybe she works in the HR department and enjoys her job of letting people go.

Very similarly, if you were to see an angry woman with perfectly manicured nails, tight hair and a permenant crusty look on her face holding this bag, you might think she carries a gun or knife in it.

If you saw someone on the university campus (WWU?) walking out of the art school carrying this bag, you may want to follow her to the tattoo shop she works.

If you were on trial for murder and someone in the jury was carrying this bag, you may not feel good about the upcoming verdict.

Made in Bellingham, WA. It has 3 interior pockets, one for your laser pointer, one for your mini .22 pistol and one for tattoo sketch book. Oh and any bag that has seatbelt webbing for straps is a friend of mine, this bag… is a friend of mine. Measures 7″x9″x4″.

Designer Mini Handbags – you know, for dolls

August 30, 2006

Minivilla makes very small handbags for her dolls. Her first bag took about 5 hours to design and cannot be sewn with a machine because of the small size. They even have linings. The funny thing is that in real life minivilla loves huge handbags. link

Used handbags? – handbags4sale is selling

August 30, 2006

handbags4sale can you spot the cat?

Buy some used handbags. Handbags4sale is selling part of her vast collection. Most bags are for $15 but some are $20. But I’m going to speculate that if you buy more than one, handbags4sale will give you a bargain deal. PayPal only and all sales are final.

My favorite thing about the pictures on her post is the cat hidden in one of the pictures.

SunTrap Bag by Rosanna Kilfedder

August 22, 2006

SunTrap Bag by Rosanna Kilfedder The ultimate handbag for the green woman. This geeky bag will light the interior when you open it and charge your cellphone. Things you could hear if this bag goes into production: “Um honey, may I borrow your bag, my phone is about to run out of battery.” Or, “Sorry about that, my phone ran out of battery, I just plugged it into my wife’s hangbag so I’m good to go.”

R.E.Load Aika is a tiny messenger bag

August 22, 2006

Reload Aika tiny messenger bag R.E.Load has a very cool miniature messenger bag measuring 7″ wide x 6″ tall. What are tiny messenger bags for, you ask? Tiny messenger bags are for things that are tiny. Like text books (on your PDA) , blackberries, wallets, or a large cell phone. OR, for a tiny person like my toddler. Then this bag is for normal sized objects like a doll, sippy-cups, fruit snacks for dad, that sort of thing.

R.E.Load was started by Roland and Ellie, two messengers. The coolest thing about this company is how their manufacturing and shipping works:

We take your order, cut out your materials, and sew everything together with our own two hands. Then we check and double-check every stitch, pack up your bag and ride it to our shippers.
