    It's got cigarette burns, rust on the chains, ink marks on the bottom, and tears in the leather… but it's still a Chanel bag (an authentic one, the seller claims). Would you put down $118.40 for it?

    We're very tempted to bid on this bag ourselves (hey, a good dye job or a fun DIY that we wouldn't have dared to try otherwise might give this iconic piece a new life), but is it completely crazy to drop a hundred on something that might fall apart during shipping?

    Or, if you don't see the fixer-upper charm here, Russell, the seller, provides a different solution: "It would make a great beach bag!" That's the spirit, Russ! (Ebay)
