A little less than a month ago, I posted about Handbag Amnesty. This is a great event where Handbag.com and Cancer Research UK have partnered to launch the first ever Handbag Amnesty. Ending in October, this cause will offer the opportunity to bid on one of the many designer handbags donated by a celebrity in order to raise money to help beat cancer. Some of our favorite celebrities are donating some gorgeous handbags to the cause. Want inside information as to how the biding is going? Well, Sharon Osbourne’s Louis Vuitton handbag currently has the most bids and is going for £340. Keira Knightley’s Prada is following at £300 (a bag that retails for £1000). And of course, in typical Hills fashion, the rivalry continues; Lauren Conrad’s handbag is at £200 and Heidi Montag’s at £66. Please visit Handbag.com for complete details and show your support.

P.S. Please consider supporting our small, bag-loving team by clicking our links before shopping or checking out at your favorite online retailers like Amazon, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, or any of the listed partners on our shop page. We truly appreciate your support!

    Has anyone from the US been able to put in a bid? I have an ebay account in the US, but when I try to enter a bid using it does not take. I have “registered” numerous times but it always fails

    Hi Debe

    I’m running the auction for Cancer Research UK, and just to let you know to email us at handbagamnesty@cancer.org.uk if you have any problems, or you could send us a message through our ebay shop.

    The reason why your bid might not be working is because if you register multiple times the ebay system makes the user id invalid. If you send your details to the address above we can sort the problem out very quickly for you.

    With best wishes, and many thanks for your interest in the auction.
