In relation to the on-going threads about shoes/handbags, how many pairs of shoes/bags do you have?

I have 25 pairs of shoes which I currently alternate between (including boots, trainers and flip flops/sandals).

I have 7 bags currently in "service".

abuot 80 bags and 80 pairs of shoes (about 10 pairs that i havent even worn yet)

do you keep all your shoes in the boxes?

sweetmonkey Fri 19-Aug-05 15:02:06

not sure if that was for me or not, but i do keep them all in boxes.

am running out of room now though

I only use about 4 pairs of shoes(all sandals/flip flops).

I use about 3 different bags.

None of them are very exciting.

I am reducing my unworn shoes by starting to sell them on ebay.

Probably (very rough guess) around 30 pairs of shoes due to a recent clearout. Handbags I'm not sure but I only use about 8-10 of them in any case.

nailpolish Fri 19-Aug-05 15:04:45

I love anything second hand-an inbuilt thing left over from my childhood.I love others castoffs!

nailpolish Fri 19-Aug-05 15:06:11

dropinthe Fri 19-Aug-05 15:06:42

They have to be hardly worn with no hint of sweat stains etc etc

nailpolish Fri 19-Aug-05 15:07:34

dropinthe Fri 19-Aug-05 15:08:38

Probably 5 pairs of shoes and 3 handbags. I feel deprived now reading this thread! I never realised people had so many!

potty1 Fri 19-Aug-05 15:12:46

Not enough

MascaraOHara Fri 19-Aug-05 15:14:43

I've only sold unworn shoes on eBay and clothes (i'm new to eBay) I average a UK7

I tend to wear one pair all summer (currently khaki birkies) and another pair all winter - usually Natural Shoe Store comfy boots.
And then have a posh pair for each season - currently a pair of Ted Baker kitten heels (can't walk in them), and DKNY boots. Only the Birkies were bought this year.

And flip flops.

I buy one pair of open-toed sandals each summer (usually Clark's children's because they are SOOO comfy and I'm a size 4).

I have a pair of winter boots which are now 7 years old and I still wear every day in the winter!!! (I get them repaired a lot!)

I have a pair of wellies for the garden.

85 pairs of shoes.
40 pairs of socks.
30 handbags.
25 purses.

I tried not to throw away a pair of shoes since I was 16(now 24). I always repair them as soon as they need it. I also used to be assistant manager at a shoe shop and at sock shop. So handy for the discount!
A friend of mine makes handbags so I buy the ones she makes for her college course.
I try to use them all!
