Shoppers went crazy recently, after a gorgeous designer bag was debuted on QVC.

The Amanda Wakeley ‘The Carter’ bag went on sale at midnight on 9th May, at a fraction of its normal price - £199.98, down from the normal price of £319.

And clearly, fans were delighted with the bargain, with many rushing to pick up the bag as soon as it was revealed on the shopping channel.

QVC have revealed to W&H that, after being on air for just over 15 minutes, over 300 of ‘The Carter’ bags were sold between midnight and 1am. That’s a whopping 50 bags a minute, and almost one every second.

The stunning bag, complete with a handy cross-body strap, is made from soft, grainy leather and includes a chic stud detailing on the front, making it a stylish pairing with any outfit.

It's big enough to put in all your daily essentials, but small enough that it won't weigh you down on a busy day.

The Carter bag is normally available in six different colour options, including a tan, black, python print and papaya colour, but after debuting at a reduced price on QVC, it sold out in four of them in just a day!

But if you're worried about having missed out, never fear, because you can still get your hands on the white or papaya versions, or get yourself on the waitlist for the black or tan option.

Sadly however, the lilac python and turquoise python prints are still sold out.

Customers who were lucky enough to pick up the Carter bag when it launched have been singing its praises online, with one writing a review saying, ‘Love this bag and went for the tan which is the perfect shade and will go with everything.’

While another agreed, saying ‘I’m very happy with my bag, well worth the wait, exceptional quality with this brand.’

If you want to buy one now, the bag is back up to its original price of £319, and is available HERE.

Race you to the checkout!
