I've been shopping for a crossbody purse since around September. I picked one out, and then it sold out! The problem is not that there is not an abundance of purse options available, but that I am a cheapskate. I cannot see paying $225 for this lovely, tiny little bag. Not an option. Thank goodness the internet can send me e-mail alerts for bargains. One of the sites I belong to awarded me a credit that I applied to bring the price down to $69 (a savings of over $150). When I saw the total, it was like little kids playing duck-duck-goose so I snapped it up. My swanky new accessory came in the mail and I'm thrilled to have a fancy little hands-free bag. Are you a discount shopper?
