Isn't that the anonymous avatar from this site?? Does FT get a commission?
Seriously, that's simply outrageous.

Clever though, to cash in on the stupidity of some women to buy it.

Now it has eyelets, I can see a business opportunity here, I have a gizmo for punching holes and setting eyelets so could do you one for just £100, better still, a bargain at £50!

And to go with Sue's paper bag I am offering a very nice line in jewellery made out of shiny chocolate wrapping paper. No. honestly, eating the chocolate first was no hardship at all.

I have to admit, if I were a designer, I'd be just as ridiculous, because I know there would be people out there foolish enough to pay the money for it! Okay, maybe I wouldn't actually sell a paper bag (but the eyelets! don't forget the eyelets!) for $300.

Looks a bit pointless to me laugh I am sure the crafty fingers of Sue, Santana and others could make a much more attractive looking bag! lol

Just what the paper dresses of the 60s needed as an accessory! Maybe if the clutch came with a spare dress in it...

I didn't have a paper dress but can certainly remember having paper knickers, very useful for going on holiday, no washing required, just bin them. Whatever happened to those, I haven't seen them in chemists which is where we used to buy them.

I had paper knickers too - for the same reason!

I saw them on sale in the hospital shop a couple of years ago, but only in one size - aeroplane size. I asked if they could get other sizes. "That's a good idea. I'll look into it."

They also had them in the hospital, in a selection of sizes, but for their use, not ours. Worth investigating!

Yes, loads of results on Amazon. Example: cotton disposable, £6 for a pack of five. Nice to know you don't have to be in hospital to get them. smile

I don't WANT any, I just wondered what happened to them.

I think I'll flog some paper hats we put on patients before they go for an operation. They come in two colours (white and red), and one size fits all sized heads. I figure $49.99 a hat and I'm in the money! I could even sell them matching knickers but only in the white. laugh

Mightn't those long bags used for sandwiches (hoagies, subs, grinders, poorboys, etc.) make spiffy socks? A touch of bright magic marker here and there and you could add $50 to a pair.
