Very smart looking - just came across it on the link from another thread.


Approx 3 times the price of my first car!
Would reduce my mortgage by 10%

Not getting into the rights and wrongs of posh bags, just hahaha at my champagne taste and beer budget!

Prob won't put this on my xmas list

i am kicking myself now

cause i had two of these. seriously. but the problem with the crocidle is that it "peels" And you have to have them repaired. Anywho I couldn't be annoyed and sold them at a garage sale for about, hmm 25 bucks iirc....

Do crocs peel in the wild then?grin

lol. It's something about the skin, gets hard or something. anyway it was on top part where they had to cut the smaller pieces and their glued to something else and glue came apart. anywho too much bother really.

i knew they were worth loads as some ultra-rich gay friend had given them to me but c'est la vie....

i heart tk maxx for bags

its even better when some gullible fool shopping addict posts with a designer goody that cost megabucks and i can pipe up

" Ohh i got one JUST like that today in tk max for a tenner"

[evil grin]

I think for £5K, I'd want the whole crocodile

That Browns site is dangerous, haven't looked at it before.

Speaking of pricey, thought for price per square inch of cotton this was doing quite well.
