Ebay Shopping: Lou Vuitton

When my mom first moved to New York in the early '70s to work at Mademoiselle, she couldn't get over how everyone at Condé carried these brown plasticky canvas bags -- and fawned over them like they were, oh, alligator. In the following weeks, she brought herself up to speed...and later invested in a quite large one so she could carry my diapers in style. No matter how much of that monogrammed plastic canvas I've grown up with (literally, from the beginning) and love, I'll never think it looks right on a man in any form larger than a wallet. That's where pieces like this 1920s suitcase come into play. It's full on Vuitton, but instead of LV, it's got MAN written all over it. The live auction starts Wednesday with a minimum bid of GBP200 (no Paypal accepted, though).

    For businesses that operate not only web stores, but brick and mortar retail outlets, it's important to be sure that stock can be controlled centrally, and that orders taken through stores can be managed by the same system as used in the website. That means that it's simple to see what needs to be done, what orders must be filled, and to manage schedules, deliveries, and other tasks. Web shop providers are available that can give you control over multiple outlets at once. For smaller businesses, however, this feature would be unnecessary. Learn more with List Easy
