Shop My Closet 5/8/09 - Designer Purses

I Am Recessionista is now on a mission to find a new home for stuff I don't wear anymore or have never worn before. Every Friday, new items will be posted under the Shop My Closet Tag.
  • All items are in excellent or good condition; either gently worn or never worn, some with price tags on them.
  • All prices are stated in US Dollars. They are bargain prices because my aim is to give these pieces a better home and not to make a profit.
  • Description and sizing will be provided as accurate as possible. But do feel free to leave me comments if you still have any questions about sizing, measurements, etc. or email me at iamrecessionista at
  • Since these are all one-piece items from my personal closet, I will update my blog with the word [SOLD] in front of the item title once the item is not available.
  • Payment is through Paypal and shipping will be USPS.
  • Shipping cost: Bags $5, Shoes $5, Clothing $2 to $5, Accessories $1 to $4.
I was a Bagaholic (not anymore), so I decided to start off my first Shop My Closet entry with a few of my designer purses up for grabs. Just so you know, I have never bought a fake bag in my life. I am a believer of quality and so I will never buy a fake especially bags. I assure you that every designer purse that you see here are either from the brand name boutique itself or a reputable retailer like Macys, no where else. Each purse you see here has been treated with love and care and stored comfortably in their respective dust bags on a long shelf in my walk-in closet. I am selling them at very reasonable prices because I want to see them in a good home and not make a profit or get back what I originally paid for.
