A Heap of Handbags, A Pool of Purses, A Potpourri of Pocketbooks

Those of you who know me or read my blog regularly, know that I love to shop.  I have shoe addiction – a clothing addiction and a purse problem.

I haven’t finished Shoe Shock quite yet and in true ADD fashion I’m moving on to my handbag habit.  I never realized how many bags I actually have.  It’s pretty sickening.  They reside all over the house including the attic – which I haven’t even attempted yet.

So here is the damage so far:

Red Hot


Accessory Array

Black & Gold

Black & White

Feeling Blue

Fun Bags

Soft & Furry

Green & Yellow

Neutral like Switzerland



A Pile of Purses

There are more but that’s all for today – I’m exhausted.

Oh – just a note…  I found so many things just thrown in my handbags:  Valium, jewelry, cash, nasal spray – you name it, it was in there.

I think I’m ready to start my own Bag, Borrow or Steal.  Anyone up for it?

  1. I only WISH I had that many purses! What an amazing collection – you defntly have enough to start your own Bag, Borrow and Steal!

  2. OH MY GOODNESS. You were not kidding when you said “any ideas for hanging purses” haha. Woah. I would have said to get a few of those coat hooks at a flea market (or Urban Outfitters/Anthropologie) for your wall, but I have no idea how they would accommodate so many bags!

    Just personally, I would go through them and find the ones I use the most often or I like the best, and then put the others in big plastic storage bins in the basement/attic/etc or sell some on Ebay (then you can buy more purses! yay). I would use a coat rack or coat hooks or decorative knobs screwed into one wall to hang and display my favorites…kind of like artwork!

    But, seriously. Great collection. So jealous!

  3. Wow what a collection!

    I just recently decided to purge all my purses (I’m a vegan and have a ton of leather ones lying around from my “non-vegan” days) and I’m getting ready to eBay them. Want to make more room in my closet for new stuff! 🙂

  4. I’m loving the silver collection.

  5. You’re a woman bag possessed too! So glad to meet you. My mom started my obsession as a little girl. I loved her handbags and have traded with her over the years for her vintage bags. I can purge clothing and some jewelry, but I can’t seem to let go of my favorite purses!

  6. Oh, I love your colors and the different categories! Don’t you just love finding stuff hidden in your purses. It must have been so fun to go through all of those.
