How much do you spend on a handbag?

I was just watching Martha Steward and she was showing designer handbags that cost anywhere from $200 to $1599!!! :o I know the "rich" think nothing of throwing a few thousand dollars on a purse but I don't think the ordinary working person should feel any less a complete person  because they don't have the "right" bag on their arm. It seems the trend in handbags is big, bigger and biggest , both in size and price but I like a smaller bag with lots of storage places for cards, phone, cash, etc. I draw the line, though, at spending what I consider an immoral amount of money on a purse. (I'm not trying to get a debate going a morality issue, that's just my thought.)  I realize that normally a well-made handbag will cost more than $2.99, but $1500+....My last handbag cost $2.99. It's satin lined and quite vintage looking. I bought it at Value Village and think I got a great deal. What do you spend on a handbag and what are your thoughts on this?

I wont buy designer handbags unless I can find them at an unbelievably good price. I came across one recently. A Brighton handbag for $70. I thought it was a great deal, so I went for it. It holds everything I need it to, and it's been durable for me. A good investment in my book.
