I wouldn't mind so much what they call them if they still had something. Whatever happened to Sak's, to Max of NY, to Stone Mountain? Where are all our choices? Is it all Dooney &Bourke and Vera Bradley now? What boring offerings in handbags! 


.......obviously Dooney bags bring in high sales, consistently.  Those other brands.....did not.   Retailers like money.   


And customers like variety... Woman Wink

It's much more cost effective to buy them off the D&B site. Free S&H if you spend $150 (who doesn't when buying a D&B?).

I sent her an email and asked her to please stop this because she sounds foolish.  She replied, but it continues.

I have male and female Dooney and GILI purses so they can mate when I put them in the closet and then I have enough to gift one to everyone on the planet as the hosts tells us to do.

Handbags have no gender, they are not male or female!  To refer to an inanimate object as "she" shows a lack of understanding the English language.

Actually, no, it doesn't make me listen and pay attention.  It makes me change the channel.  I don't want to listen to hosts that act and sound foolish, juvenile and unprofessional.  I'll spend my shopping dollars elsewhere.
