Did Your Favorite Bag’s Price Increase for Spring 2015? We Found Out

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag

There’s an old saying about the only sure things in life being death and taxes, but if you’re a handbag buyer, there’s another inevitability: price increases. With brands like Chanel, Hermès and Louis Vuitton, they’re fairly easy to track; because the bags are only available from the company’s boutiques, all the new product arrives at once and sales associates warn their loyal customers in advance. With brands that wholesale bags to third-party retailers and department stores, it’s a little trickier.

Because we have a wealth of back-data on bag prices to sift through (hello, PurseBlog post archives), we selected eight super-popular bags from brands that sell their wares at department stores and did some spot-checks to see how much, if at all, the prices have gone up for the versions that have just arrived in stores. Almost all of them had, and we’ve detailed the price differences below.

In a couple instances, there are still old-priced bags available online, and a particularly resourceful sales associate at your local department store may also be able to find you one of the lower-priced bags in store.

Reports: Ex-Giant Chris Canty To Visit Jets On Friday

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York Jets are bringing in defensive lineman Chris Canty for a two-day visit starting Friday, according to multiple reports.

The 10-year veteran was cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Feb. 27, which makes him eligible to sign with any team before Tuesday’s official start of free agency.

Canty won a Super Bowl ring as a member of the New York Giants from 2009-12 after spending his first four years in Dallas. The 32-year-old Bronx native started 24 games at defensive end for the Ravens over the past two seasons.

“I am going to continue to prepare to play again and will explore other possibilities to play,” Canty said after his release last week.

Known as a positive force in the locker room, Canty had 33 tackles, .5 sacks and a forced fumble in 2014, playing in only 11 games due to wrist surgery to remove a staph infection.

Canty currently resides in New Jersey, according to the New York Post. The Jets and Giants share MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The Jets already have difference makers at defensive end in Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson, though rookie general manager Mike Maccagnan could lose backup linemen Leger Douzable and Kenrick Ellis in free agency.

The team added some depth at DE on Wednesday by signing Ronald Talley, who played for new Jets head coach Todd Bowles in Arizona. The 29-year-old journeyman has 14 tackles and a sack in 15 NFL games.

Tackle the labyrinth with Haunted – Dungeons of Herwood for Windows and Windows Phone

Haunted – Dungeons of Herwood is a Windows Phone game where you have to tackle forty five dungeon levels. The game does not tackle dungeon hunting in the traditional action/adventure approach but rather presents the dungeon levels more of a maze filled with trap doors, puzzles and plenty of treasure. While you do have a few monsters to contend with, you do so with stealth and timing.

Haunted – Dungeons of Herwood has a casual pace, simple interface and the dungeons can be challenging to navigate through. If you prefer your gaming from a larger screen, there is a version of Haunted available for Windows 8 devices, which plays out nicely from tablets.
