Many lucky people snapped up luxury designer handbags from Harrods for just a tiny fraction of the price after an apparent website blunder.
The top London department store completely sold out of its cheap Aspinal of London handbags online on Thursday after gleeful shoppers quickly realised the upmarket bags were listed as heavily under-priced.
Fine Italian leather handbags which would have usually cost several hundred pound were listed at under £5.
One £250 pure leather tote bag cost just £2.13, while the brand’s Marylebone tote bag usually costing £950 was on sale for just £8.08.
An Aspinal of London Lottie shoulder bag, which usually costs £340, was also being bought by buyers for just £3.61.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes and luck when I saw the handbags,” one delighted shopper told the Standard.
“Now I hope that Harrods honour the mistake and I get my £800 handbag for a fiver.”
The pricing gaffe appeared to affect most of the range, although a few handbags remained listed at full price.
By Thursday evening, the entire range of the cut-price handbags were sold out on the Harrods website.
According to one shopper, who said her entire office were quickly buying up the bargain accessories, the last three handbags were bought at just before 4pm.
The customers have called on Harrods to honour the mistake and still dispatch the handbags to the lucky shoppers.
