A classy, name-brand leather wallet from Burberry. This deal of the day is $149 (67% off the $450 retail price). Sale ends at midnight tonight (EST). November 29, 2009.
What would the world be like without money? Peace on earth? No poor, no rich, no getting your purse stolen, no need to figure out 15% of a $63.47 check (I still don’t know, gave up and left her a gift card to Hot Dog on a Stick…that’s a real gift item, you know). There was once a brave, engaging, provocative show on weekday afternoons that attempted to answer that very question. The show, of course, is Duck Tales (ah-WOO-oo!). They had an episode where Scrooge McDuck goes to a city that has no currency. They live their daily lives working for the good of the community. Scrooge, unable to believe his eyes, introduces a bottle cap to them as a form of currency, they get greedy, demand more bottle caps, and the entire civilization collapses. Nothing like a good ol’ fashion anti-greed message for our kids while we’re out maxing our credit cards on holiday shopping (or the REAL message could be insidious communist propaganda cleverly disguised as a children’s TV show to brainwash our youth into embracing the uprising of the glorious proletariat. Unlikely, but I prefer to see the conspiracy theory side of life. Makes things more interesting).
So until our own bottle cap society collapses, why not use some of your still-valuable hard-earned cash to get something nice for the holidays? Today’s deal of the day is a classy, name brand gem from Burberry. The Burberry name is synonymous with high quality and fashion, so you know you’re getting something that not only looks good, but also will last for a long time. And the name is popular enough to make all your friends drool with envy. So even if this economy has gotten to you, you don’t have to look like it. The wallet looks so good that people will assume that there’s tons of cash in it, whether that’s true or not. And with the JomaDeals discount, it’s never been easier to get your hands on a Burberry, for yourself or a gift for that special girl in your life. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to write a strongly worded letter to Disney about their subtle communist agenda (just after I write the United Egg Coalition about their “mind control brown egg” scheme and The Girl Scouts of America about their “get America addicted to our cookies” scheme).

In 1856, a young Thomas Burberry opens a small shop in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. A commitment to quality and innovation in fabric and outwear design earned Burberry a loyal following. Since then, they’ve grown to be an international brand, giving us the first official trenchcoat, a number of new fabrics, and creating the trademark Burberry Check pattern. Burberry fabrics have accompanied soldiers on the battlefront and explorers to the South Pole. And now, 150 years after its original creation, Burberry is internationally used and loved by millions of loyal followers.
