I'll go first. I've got 3 handbags, 2 pairs of OK shoes, a pair of boots I'm not that keen on ,and a pair of trainers.

I can’t believe you’ve got only 4 pieces of footwear. No sandals? Flip flops? Slippers?

grapefruitpip Fri 11-Oct-19 19:21:19

no slippers, had 2 pairs of sandals but walked all summer in them and binned them. Not a fan of the flip flop.

Good grief. That all? I don’t dare admit how many I have blush.

KatyK Fri 11-Oct-19 19:33:56

Nor me corner

50+ pairs of shoes, includes boots, sandals and trainers. 30 hadbags.

Because my favourite shoe shop, Office, are in trouble 😱 I've bought 4 pairs in the last month.
I've no idea how many shoes/handbags I have.

I’m more at the Harrigran end of the scale than the grapefruitpip
I am saying no more......

Too many!!

wildswan16 Fri 11-Oct-19 19:43:25

Handbags = 3 (plus one posh one used once for a wedding)
Shoes = 3 comfy flats, 1 posh pair of heels (worn once for a wedding), two trainers, one ankle boots, 1 pair sandals, 1 slippers and 1 flipflops (holiday only).

(But I do have 26 pairs of socks!).

Too many but I tend to wear/use the same ones all the time.

petra Fri 11-Oct-19 19:44:13

2pairs of ok shoes
So you have no good/nice shoes?

grapefruitpip Fri 11-Oct-19 19:45:20

Yes, the 2 pairs.

GrannyGravy13 Fri 11-Oct-19 20:09:20

Oh dear I am loathe to admit.....2 pairs high boots, 2 pairs walking boots, 20 pairs ankle boots. Shoes I really do not want to admit to.

Handbags oh dear I am so guilty of over indulgence, but some are classics which D and DILs crave.

Urmstongran Fri 11-Oct-19 20:20:22

I have many shoes, here and then in Spain. Oh dear.

The joy of buying shoes though is we stay the same size over many years. I’m going to wear some suede kitten heels with a pussy bow to a wedding in a fortnight. I bought them from ‘Boden’ 12 years ago and wear them only occasionally but I still love them!

Lots of shoes and lots of handbags, too many to count.

MamaCaz Fri 11-Oct-19 20:35:53

I think I have a similar number of bags to you, but nearly twice as many shoes, grapefruitpip - though half of them don't fit me any more.

I just have what i need, and even if money was no object, I really don't think I would ever be tempted to buy any more just for the sake of it.

I have countless shoes. Countless because to count them I would have to get down on my knees and pull them out of the spaces at the bottom of all my wardrobes; those spaces are only about 12" high - I guess you could call them the 'bottom boxes' as opposed to the 'top boxes', haha.

Anyway, there are many, many pairs of shoes, sandals, ankle boots, flip-flops etc there. As well as the 3 or 4 pairs that I keep downstairs - these are the ones I'm most often wearing at any given time, so a pair of boots, and 2 or 3 pairs of shoes/trainers at the moment, but sandals and flip-flops live there in the summer months.

Handbags not so much - probably only about 8 or 9.

Marydoll Fri 11-Oct-19 20:45:56

I think I may have more than anyone here. My colleagues used to call me ^ Imelda Marcus^
I' m too embarrassed to admit how many.🤭

callgirl1 Fri 11-Oct-19 20:53:41

7 handbags, none of them expensive.
5 pairs of sandals, soon to be 6.
No shoes.
2 pairs slippers.
2 pairs of boots, bought towards the end of last winter in a sale, so not worn yet.

vena11 Fri 11-Oct-19 21:01:18

I will not admit to any amount

Millie22 Fri 11-Oct-19 21:16:48

Quite a lot
A few favourite pairs of shoes including some that were hand made for me in the old Yugoslavia
4 pairs of boots no 5 actually just remembered another pair
10 sandals

Sara65 Fri 11-Oct-19 21:20:28

No shoes, far too many boots, sandals, flip flops, but never been overly interested in handbags .

Maybelle Fri 11-Oct-19 21:22:40

1 handbag, two pairs of sandals, a pair of lace up shoes , a pair of slippers and a pair of walking boots.

Willow500 Fri 11-Oct-19 21:40:34

No idea but it's too many and I tend to wear the same few pairs most of the time - handbags I periodically swap round depending on the time of the year.
