December 22 -- Environmentally Friendly Purses for Conscious Consumers


Update: The lovely Furla handbag was won by comment #30 in the Russian blog! Congratulations!


With the biggest holiday and shopping season in full swing, it sometimes makes sense to think about the larger picture: does everyone on our list really need so many presents? Or put differently: does every present have to be new? Whether you call it regifting, Dirty Santa or just plain recyling, sometimes a slightly used present is even better than a new one!


Roman and Nicole, the two Swiss entrepreneurs behind Secondhandbags, know this better than most people. Their Jimdo store sells handbags and accessories with a history: every item they sell is in "like new" condition. Considering they specialize in high-end fashion handbags that would normally sport a hefty price tag, buying from can also save you a bit of cash!


After all, there's only thing better than a new Louis Vuitton handbag -- and that's an "almost new" Louis Vuitton handbag!

Roman and Nicole are sponsoring the genuine Furla bag pictured below for today's giveaway, so be sure to comment on this blog post or retweet our tweet of the day to win!


Make sure to check back in tomorrow and Saturday -- only two more days left, and the gifts keep on coming.


Good luck to everyone!

    Les escribo en español. Señores administradores de Jimdo: -"Sé" el primero de tus amigos en...- "Sé" es sin acento (sin tilde, se escribe en español así: -"Se" el primero de tus amigos en...). "Se" sólo lleva acento cuando es del verbo "saber".
    Pido perdón por tener que corregirles; aunque creo que esa falta de ortografía es culpa de Facebook.
    Un saludo, amigos.
    Hasta luego.

    My wife thinks 'A lady without a purse is like a car without suspension; jolted by every pebble on the road'. So I would like to win this for my wife! Very nice!
