Just when you think you’ve seen every conceivable way to earn a buck, along comes a new idea that knocks your socks off.
I received an e-mail today from a company called “Bag, Borrow or Steal.” They rent handbags by the week. Or the month if that’s your pleasure.
Whatever your taste – Chanel, Fendi, Louis Vuitton or Guchi – they can fix you right up. For fun I clicked on a smart Prada that was “on sale” for a mere $143 by the week, or $379 for the whole month. What a deal! (Tongue in cheek).
The bag retails for a whopping $2150 – more than I spend on groceries for a year!
Since I’ve not paid $379 EVER for a purse for keeps, it seems unthinkable that someone would pay that amount for a “limited engagement!” How badly would you need to impress someone at those prices?
The crowd I run with wouldn’t know a Isabella Fiore from a Kroger bag. I just bought a cute little number from K-Mart for $12.99. Thanks but no thanks.
However, I give them an “A” for audacity.
