Here is a purse I found and almost dropped when I saw the price. It is $2,895.00, YES you are reading that correctly. The description does not say the wool used is that from a yettie, or the gold is 14K, or even that the leather is from the ear of a virgin pig!

I have seen much nicer purses done by KPers. So please don't under sell your things.

Here is the website with that purse listed:

I think you have to remember that the price is what the market will bear. If you can add a designer label or put something in a exclusive boutique, you can get big prices even though all of us know it could be reproduced for much less.

True we all know that but Two thousand? that is going way beyond belief.

So the purse is a Dolce & Gabbana, and it is sold at Neiman Marcus (or as my DH calls it "needless markup), but really!?!?!?! Oh, and the designer is a favorite of celebrities--those with more money than brains .

I think its cute, any one of us could knock that off in a few days, charge half the price and laugh all the way to the bank. All we would need is a label - so keeping with the italian name, how about 'sacchetto paradiso' ( Paradise from KP and bag)
