For both, apparently. It's awful! SIXTY GRAND. How & why.

I normally think people can do what they want with their money etc but anyone who spends £60,000 on a hideous clutch bag needs to have a word with themselves.

It better come filled with crisps or that amount.

squoosh Sun 25-Jan-15 05:56:16

A never ending supply of crisps. Like the magic porridge pot.

squoosh Sun 25-Jan-15 05:58:31

Cheese and onion crisps too, I'd be so annoyed if the neverending supply was salt and vinegar.

More money than sense.

I don't understand the saying "cheap at half the price". Surly of course it's cheaper at half the price????

Spidergirl8 Sun 25-Jan-15 19:39:58

I find this bag deeply offensive- especially given recent press about world poverty. Funny old world....

dexter73 Sun 25-Jan-15 20:22:31

mcdog - I googled as it does sound wrong
"Cheap at half the price" is the original and correct version of the saying. In Middle English, cheap, or "cheep" also meant goods or property, so the street cry, "Cheap at half the price!", was the Middle Ages' equivalent of today's shop window sign, "All stock 50% off".

What the bloody hell is that? It's hideous.

southeastastra Sun 25-Jan-15 21:55:38

blimey it's out of stock

dexter73 Sun 25-Jan-15 21:58:52

I thought I had better snap one up quickly before everyone else tried to buy it.

It's horrible, and I fucking love crisps.

FindMeAPixie Sun 25-Jan-15 22:08:43

Don't panic...there are other...ahem...stockist....well places to order.

You have to wait 4 months for your beauty though..

southeastastra Sun 25-Jan-15 22:16:28

4 months! it will be out of fashion by then and there will be flora buttery spread handbags and i will miss out

Greengardenpixie Sun 25-Jan-15 22:20:27

Actually, i dont dislike either. I mean i wouldnt pay that price but its quirky and meant to be fun??? I would say, lighten up!
I have seen worse!

Camolips Sun 25-Jan-15 22:22:43

I've just made my own creation out of a cheese footballs' tin and a piece of string. I wonder if I could get a few thousand for it?

Speaking of food-fashion, this collection really did amuse me:
