paperbags mag

the fash pack has been feeling kinda blah lately. we've been sick, we have a dripping red runny nose, plus *cough*cough*ing all the time. so yakky so we haven't been attending a lot of events. at work, our head feels heavy and fuzzy, we just wanna put it down on the desk and sleep it off. hence the lack of posts. pag-uwi, higa na. facebook na lang via iphone.

after one of our doctor visits this past week, we decided to have lunch at dome across makati medical center. you know how they have a rack against the walls that carry all sorts of magazines? well, in the midst of the times and the newsweeks and the mega publications, we spotted this never-before-seen magazine: paperbags, etc. take note, it's the july-september 2009 issue, so bago pa. and check out the theme: "annoyingly rare" haha! what is this magazine?? and at 50 pesos, who's going to buy this?? let's take a gander, shall we? (click to enlarge and read)

how to tell if a stephen sprouse is fake:
the perfect travel bag:
vintage chanel is in vogue:
finally, how to get your own copy of paperbags, etc: the rest of the magazine is like a catalog of pre-owned and "pre-loved" designer bags, all for sale through this gal named jena. uy alam ba ni bag hag 'to??

"Jena" distributes this annoyingly rare bag-mag for free to the office we used to work in. I guess parang alam nya na bag-crazy ang mga otash doon, since she keeps on sending the mags. :)
Hemingway, I hope you get well :)

Interesting concept for a magazine. Wonder how it can survive though? Since it's featuring pre-owned stuff, this automatically eliminates the luxe bag brands from ever advertising (tama ba reasoning ko?).

Either the publisher is very brave and ahead of his/her time, very rich, very foolhardy, or all three. ;)

Nothing but a marketing gimmick to sell pre owned, pre loved, pre war (joke) bags. Jena's (whoever she is) equivalent of a blog. But why is she selling it? Ano yan? AVON catalogue?

This Jena gal tried buying one of my pre-owned bags in eBay (I know this is the same Jena because I recognize the email address-vintagecircuit@gmail.com). I was selling it for 20k and she said that it wasn't worth it and would buy it from me for 5k max. Naloka ako sa kanya.
