Well, the last point might be a bit difficult as there are too many ladies of good taste vying for one of these beauties to add to their wardrobes.

The bidding will remain open for two weeks. The highest bidder for each lot the end of the auction period will win the bag in question.

If you come up as one of the six lucky ones to win a bag at the end of the auction, the next step would be to make the payment. A little more wait (2-4 weeks) and your bag, packed in exclusive ARTBURO signature packaging, will arrive at your doorstep through a special courier.
