Please help me find my sister her ideal bag

Well, what I believe her ideal bag might be. It's a present from me to her, my budget is £50. She's slightly bohemian, in her early 40's, recently got a job as a secondary school teacher, no fashion sense whatsoever, fun and bubbly. What I have in mind is a hobo, suede (as in real suede) large-ish shoulder bag in a burgundy or brown colour. Can you help me please?

Thanks mythhical. I don't mind it being ebay but I wouldn't give my sister a used bag. Although with my meagre budget I might just have to...

Another Tk. Maxx bag. Purple suede. Less than forty quid.

Got drawn into browsing the TK Maxx site after looking at madammecholet's links ( I need very little encouragement to look at handbags ) and found this

Thank you all so much for the suggestions, specially madam!! I'm really annoying because I've sort of changed direction and gone for this. What does everyone think? The bag is actually quite gorgeous, I've seen it in the shop, and when the cord is not tight, is actually rather large and will fit some A4 folders and personal stuff. Of course the rather incredible 60% off helped me make a decision.
