Gucci Gucci Goo

Been thinking of having a baby? Why bother when you could instead get one of these Gucci handbags or wallets? You don't need to feed them, and you don't need to change their diaper -- heck, they don't even wear diapers! They''ll even hold stuff for you like your money and sunglasses so that you don't have to carry them. Let's see a baby do that!

If you actually spend money on this garbage, you deserve to eat Ramen and have high blood pressure.

they're selling Gucci on Woot? I don't know which it would be more of a street-cred killer for ...

Wow! What a surprise! Zero sales on all the wallets and purses so far. Woot must be testing the waters for attracting non-Woot type folks.

hmmm.

this stuff gives "first sucker" some meaning.

Jeepers... Quite a few clueless folks around here... I don't understand why there's so much disdain for decent quality purses. These aren't just ordinary purses; these purses have bamboo handles!

That white handbag is very nice, but it's also 10x what I could afford to pay for it!

There's a Gucci edition of the new Fiat minicar, if you can believe it. Saw one the other day with license GUCCI GU.

Why do I think this is one of the sales where the 3 item limit is not really going to be problematic for anyone?

Yeah! I mean, the next time someone robs me I want them to take everything out of my wallet, give it back, the run off with the wallet itself. Also, blue leather, you know that has to be from some rare and exotic animal.

Still single, can't imagine why.

many people buy spendy handbags all the time... but these are just ugly and probably a bit over priced for woot. Gucci has some iconic bags but these aren't them. Woot should be selling them for a greater % off , imho.

I've noticed that some people list all their woot purchases in their signature. Me? No way, no how. I don't even want to acknowledge to myself, much less anyone else, just how much $$ I've spent on woot crap since 2006.

As a man who graduated with a business degree and has a firm grasp on supply vs demand, marketing of so-called luxury items and the like, I just cannot wrap my head around the idea of a purse that cost as much my first car. I guess what it comes down to is that I don't see the added value

On the plus side, these look much nicer than the ones with the gigantic logos that women carry to try to elevate their status with.

I guess that depends on how many they have. Gucci has amazing quality so if you can afford it, this is probably a good deal. Most people just cannot afford Gucci.

I feel the same about my male friends' $10k-50k watches.

True. And most people who can afford this won't buy it.

It's not really a matter of this being a good deal (these seem like ugly models but I like where woot! is going[expanding]).

The people who have this design-ier stuff who can't afford suffer from lack of self confidence and try to get a boost.

Many wooters may have some time for self reflection to see if you have shopping addiction (Hello- you're on a shopping site looking at the Gucci forum). A shopping addiction won't satiate your empty soul's appetite [only God can].

I would love to have a Gucci bag. Unfortunately, I am all too aware that one of these bags would cost the same as three or four plane trips. For now, I will continue to gaze longingly and wish I could afford a Gucci bag.

I'm glad they're on woot, just wish I could afford it.

I ordered one for my wife. She really loves the looks of the red Diana shoulder bag. The price is actually quite good compared to going to the Gucci store or going to a local department store. I like that Woot occasionally has some higher end items.

Literally three items were sold during the course of this entire sale thus far.

Gucci is great, don't get me wrong, but you'll need to discount far more than just 35% to move the brand with this target audience. I'm surprised this was even attempted.

I work in a resort area. I'm here to tell you about the $250,000. watches. Not to even mention the $100,000. handbags. Hell, if someone would just toss me one of their old bags I could sell it on e-bay and pay off both kids' student loans and still buy a car with less that 100,000 miles on it.
