Black Tie Friday – How to pay the highest possible price for everything

While the rest of you crazies are out there at 3am, shopping for the best bargains and wrestling with little old ladies for the last Wii, I’m sitting here going through my list of Things I’d Buy if I Were Rich.

Here’s a sampling:

From Hammacher Schlemmer

For 13K, this Motorized Monocycle can be yours. And well worth it might I say. It comes in a variety of colors, including ORANGE and travels at speeds up to 25mph. Buy yours here.

Martin Margiela’s Glass Slippers

Glass slippers ala Cinderella? Sort of. These shoes are being sold not as a pair, but one each at $1277 from Margiela Stores.

24K gold Buddha speakers. Seriously, why don’t you have a set of these? Put it on your Christmas list. Right. Now.

2.5 million. This 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fantasy bra was handmade. Featuring over 3,000 precious gems plus two 8 carat white diamonds and two 14 carat yellow diamonds in the center. Holy cow.

  • I didn’t run around on black friday either, I’m spending my money going to warmer climates for the winter. Can’t show you a picture of that yet. I was intrigued by the star trek urn, however.

  • Can I have the Victoria’s Secret bra and the boobies inside? It would be quite the upgrade!

    I want the monocycle, too. And the jet and those pens, oh heck! I’ll take everything. Wrap them up and deliver them to my ultra fancy mansion. Suh-weet!

    I was out there in the trenches, but not at 3am. My daughter and I did some later shopping (her plane didn’t land until 10am), so we missed all the fighting and bargains. Oh, well. We still got some great stuff.

    • I went about 10am too. And found good enough stuff. 4 presents I didn’t have before I went in! And sorry, I don’t think the bra comes with the boobies inside….=(
