A wee little contest.....

Do you remember this purse:


I went into the shop today while waiting for the bf to finish smoking his cigarette when we arrived at the apartment building.

Upon a closer look, the purse is merely a lattice frame with the thingies placed all over them. The handle is a belt type handle, and the interior is lined with cheap cotton.

The price?

Let the guessing start....just remember that this is the same shop that sells simple acrylic garter knit scarves for $75 and beaded flip-flops for $150......

I will run a little contest to see who can guess the closest to the price in USD with my converting at todays spot rate of 1.36 (ie. 1€ is worth $1.36)

The winner will receive a gifty of my choice....perhaps a gift certificate, some yarn, chocolate, I really don't know at this point in time!

This contest will end on May Day....the First of May
