The Buxton Bag

Reviewing: Buxton As Advertised On T.V.  |  Rating:

This bag is advertised as being a great organizer, which is what I was most interested in. I prefer a shoulder bag that has a place for money, credit cards, cell phone, lipstick, my check book, and a few incidentals. Still, I want all this without the purse being too large and heavy. The T.V. commercial made this look to me like my dream purse.

The first regret I had upon ordering this purse was being stuck on the telephone for at least 10 minutes. Once you order the purse, they continue to prompt and tempt you to buy more at a greatly reduced price. Then they have other "bargains" to offer. If you hang up before they get through the spiel, your order is incomplete.

I waited until my purse was in ill repair before I ordered the Buxton Bag, so I was real anxious for it to arrive. It took over two months!

As far as design goes, I do like the bag. It sits comfortably on my shoulder and has a place for everything, though not quite as great as touted! Sadly, however, it is not holding up under everday use. The zippers are breaking. The purse has a lot of zippers and already, two of them are broken.

What I've learned from this experience is that I will never order something advertized on T.V. again.
