I ran into one of my friends a couple of days ago. We only spent a few minutes together but it was just enough to learn that she went to the local craft marketplace, that day, where she bought three purses. Not one, not two but three! That got me thinking a lot.
How many purses does a woman need? How many purses do you have? I read somewhere that the average woman owns 21 handbags. How do you feel about this number? Is it right for you?
Indeed, researchers have found that the average 30-year-old owns 21 handbags and buys a new one every three months. That adds up to 111 over the course of a lifetime – with a total outlay of more than £8,000.(Source)
To me, this number is a bit high, but then again, I was never curious to count how many bags I have. Who knows, I might be surprised to get the real number. LOL.
These spring-inspired crochet bags are cute and make great gifts for little girls. Depending on the colors and flower pattern used they can be also great for young ladies who need just a little place to tuck make-up and other girlie stuff.
