I bought my Limited Edition Tooled Bayswater in Oak Darwin at Heathrow Airport in 2006. It was reduced from £600/$786 to £250/$327. I had never paid so much for a handbag and I actually had to sit down afterwards because I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. After the initial shock, I never regretted buying it. I used that bag every day for more than a year and I still take it out for a spin now and then, although it is heavier than I would like to carry these days. The size and expandable design was perfect, as was the strap length.
I read an article about the 20th anniversary of the Bayswater. I almost fell over at the price now – £1259!
