I have been trying to get out of my PMD (post marathon depression) and in the process, I have become addicted to watching items on ebay.   A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon a beautiful full leather Hermés clutch.  It was in pristine condition, starting bid was at $1000, the “buy it now” bid was at $1495.  My bid of $1100 did not reach the seller’s reserve but I wasn’t planning on going any higher.  When the bid ended, I was contacted by the seller for a second chance.  He told me his wife was willing to let it go at my bid price 🙂

So, after consulting someone about it’s authenticity… Voila, please welcome my Hermés Jige Elan Clutch in Gold – Epsom leather:

Fresh from her trip care of Johnny Air… in less than 10 days, she arrived safe and sound.  Truthfully, I don’t know if I would want to pay full price for a clutch at almost $3000, so this works perfectly for me — it is barely used, there are some very (extremely faint) scratches inside but only noticeable when you look at it from 2 inches away — it is gorgeous and I am so happy.  I scored a great deal!

I do need to snap out of my PMD before I go broke 😦

    I almost feel sorry for Balenciaga. They seem to be losing you as a client 🙂
