Can anyone recommend a good, not too expensive, functional handbag

I am fed up of not being able to find keys, or anything for that matter. Prefer a shoulder strap. Seen anything?

Watching this as I need one too and haven't time to browse the shops.

Coach bags??

Yes, Coach leather bags are great quality and look good. I'm not sure of the cost in the UK but here in the US they are a reasonable price for the quality, $200-$600 usually. Depends whether that fits your definition of not too expensive or not!

Radley have got a good range of practical styles. But tbh if you care more about value and function than brand I'd go to TK MAXX and try on everything they've got.

I love Troop bags and have several, they are canvas type material so not for everyone but come on loads of different sizes and have pockets so easy to organise things

I do look in TK Maxx. But I have to make special journey. Looked up coach bags, but they are way more than I want to pay, given that I get bored with a bag after 6 months [ smile]

I have a Troop and I would like one like it in leather, lots of pockets and zips.

I have recently bought a Fossil Morgan Traveller an ideal everyday bag , I think..

Minimammoth Thu 12-Nov-15 20:31:33

Thanks Laska, that looks more like it. Wonder if I can buy locally?

I've got something very similar to this from M&S. I got it last year and it's held up really well. With one of the discount offers that seem to be on very frequently it would be a bargain.

I am going to hunt that M&S bag down Anyone. It's on the website. Thanks.

I've given up on leather, apart from for really small bags, as I find it too heavy (haven't been well, and feel quite weak a lot of the time). Not at all 'cool' but I like Kipling, as they are so light.
