Purses made of recycled leather samples or used plastic switch-plates and bracelets made from rubber tires are just some of the expensive designer holiday gifts for luxury customers this year. The purses are $800 to $900. Liquor decanters made from old bottles with handmade silver decorations, patio lights assembled from old Mason jars and lids fitted with LED lights, and a large decorative tile made of concrete and old whiskey bottles are among the less expensive recycled gifts. Very eco-friendly and PC. Flea markets have become a favored source of "art" materials.

THAT will be the day when I pay $800 or $900 for a recycled purse! They look kind of neat, but WAY too $$! Maybe the price will come way down in the future?
