A couple of days ago in a place called Paris, France, Kim Kardashian and her mother spent more money in an hour than you make in several years. Â The pair visited the Hermes shop and purchased six handbags priced $10,000 each, one priced at $30,000, and various other bits and pieces that took their grand total well over $100,000 for the afternoon. Â Notice I said “priced at” and not “worth” – because people, we are talking about handbags.
A pouch to hold your keys and your lipstick and your taser. Â It doesn’t sing or dance or do tricks, it doesn’t clean your houseâ€¦ it just sits there on the table, being expensive. Â I’m told the $30,000 bag was priced so steeply because of its rarity, but right here next to me I have a one-of-a-kind handbag that I made myself, and so far the eBay bidding is holding steady at 20 cents. Â I don’t get it.
