$290.67 Paper Bag

It's made from coated brown paper. It has stitched seams at each side with two gold-colored metal eyelets at the bottom. But, most importantly, it has the name "Jill Sander" printed at the bottom. This bag could have been yours for only $290.67 -- but you're too late. It's already sold out! [via hypebeast]

Whoever bought those bags obviously have more money than sense.

And why can't I find people like that? I have a whole lotta crap to sell them.

I don't understand everyone's apparent disdain. These are a requirement for carrying the $16,000 hammers the Pentagon buys!

Actually, I see it as an upscale version of a Pet Rock. Silly but harmless (more harmless than a Pet Rock, really, since I'm sure some kids hit things with that new toy).

So, parent brings the bag home, leaves it on the counter and...

A: Jr. takes it, cuts holes in it, and makes a Halloween mask.

B: SO scoops the dregs from the frig into it and throws it into the compactor.

C: 30 years elapse after the bag was stuffed with old clothes and thrown into the corner of the attic. Parent kicks the bucket and Jr. calls in the American Pickers who find the last remaining one of these most sought after collectibles from the "Horrible 10s" and buy it for $10,000 then turn around and sell it for $1.5M at Southerbys the next day. Jr. then brings suit against the show claiming that he's a clinically diagnosed idiot and was taken advantage of. He wins his suit for $15M because the lawyers for the Cripple American Assn throw their weight against American Pickers. The public outcry is so great that not only is a class action suit brought against the show (et, al) but congress proposes an amendment to the constitution protecting idiots from themselves which is ratified by all 51 states (P.R. finally took the leap in 2025) in a record 72hrs.

Anyone want to buy my unused and unopened signed condoms (package signed) from John Holmes and Ron Jeremy ? Give your new lady/girlfriend a "blast" from the past. One 3 pack also signed by Traci Lords and Ron. Hehehehehehe

Whoa! I'm going to start labeling all my junk with Jill Sander's name and step out of the road while people with too much money stampede to clear out my basement and garage.

Expat, you have a great story telling talent honey!

BD, you never showed me those! Or told me the story of how you came across them either!! 😉

Capitalism thrives on people who are that rich and that stupid. According to my observations, there are so many of them around now that Socialism is doomed.

Perhaps the U.S. Government should put out a line of hideously overpriced shabby accessories, as an alternative to raising taxes on the wealthy.
