Check this new site out that I received through my email via mypoints.com. If your a bagaholic, you might just like this one. http://www.bagborroworsteal.com/ui/welcome I won't be joining it but thought I might share it and see what you think. It's a lot like netflix but you rent bags, designer ones too. I wonder what people would think of next? Rent-A-Shoe? yuck that doesn't sound appealing especially if others have worn the shoe ewww LOL

Hello maddy. I'm a certified bag lover but I wouldn't join the link you provided, LOL. I think it really depends on the people on how brand conscious they are. I don't buy expensive bags like the one in the website. I only buy bags that are affordable but spoke of quality. There are so many locally made bags here in my country that are really good. :)

Ideas come from creative minds! Why not rent-a-shoe? Rent-a-gown is already available, and I guess rent-a-jewellery might be next. That might be a lucrative business. Well, the idea is out. The business-minded can go for it. I do not charge any loyalty fees. lol.

I love bags and purses but due to our hard days . I had a preview of the site that you gave. The bags are gorgeous. I wish I have all of them but I cant. Thank yous so much for sharing those. I had fun looking at the bags. They have great designs and the joining fee is quite low.

I'm not quite one, and am trying not to be. there are loads of people who are buying Coach bags and Louis Vuitton. Even a clerk in my office has at least 2-3 LV bags! i guess it's just what you spend more on. some people have weaknesses for particular things. some of these bags appreciate in value, so maybe it can be seen as an investment??

I never know the handbag can be rent as well; obviously it is a new marketing strategy to attract buyers. Honestly I still prefer buying one instead of renting from the hygienic point of view. Well, I won’t spend a fortune to get all this designer ones. Alternatively, I will check them out and find the similar design with cheaper prices from the shops. Thanks for providing this site. Now I can get more ideas/inspiration about the fashion trend. LOL
