Would You Buy This Luggage?

Halsea luggageWe've been lusting after this bag since last summer. Those crabs are just too cute. Having grown up in the D.C. area where we summered in Maryland, we have a special appreciation for the little critters, especially when they're doused with lots of malt vinegar and Old Bay.

With our birthday around the corner and our SO asking what we would like as a gift, we're seriously considering requesting this Halsea wheelie bag. What's stopping us? Well, the price tag--at $335, it's not anywhere near as expensive as other bags we like--but it does seem a little pricey for a novelty bag. Which brings us to the next question: While this bag would certainly work in a beach destination like Miami or Mexico, would we feel silly picking it up off the baggage carousel in glitzy Vegas or chic Paris?

What do you think? Yea or Nay?

I'm a Cancer, so I would expect this for my birthday, or a JUST because gift :)

Can't beat this for a Cancer baby!

If you've been thinking about it, you should probably do it -- it's pretty fabulous.

It's adorable, for the right setting.

It's cute, but I think I think $335 is too much for something you'd only feel comfortable using on the Eastern Shore!

Hey Girls!
This is Sally, the Halsea designer. I'm thrilled that you like the Crab suitcase! You will love it. Did you know that it has pink satin lining? Also, it's the right size for the overheard. Great quality, leather trim... And really, it can be carried anywhere. I'm from So. Cal, but just took mine to NYC where it got lots of lusty glances from other gals... My Best Friend just took hers to Paris. It's cool 'cause it's not identifiable like the lux brands. BTW, it has been selling at Anthropologie for $348 (makes $335 sound better!). I have a new style that I'm working on. I'd love to get the Jet Set Girls opinions! How can I do this? Happy Trails!
