But it's such a pretty color! I have been hunting for one but in caviar cuz I don't trust myself with lambskin =X You could always spa the bag if it gets worn?

I've never brought a bag to get a spa treatment. Who does it? how does it turn out?

Well I did it...I just took my first Chanel (Chanel Black Caviar Briefcase) to a consignment store. It was sad because it was my first purchase, but I did truly regret buying it because I have such little use for it. I'm not one for pieces to just sit in a case or box.

Felt soooo strange walking away from the bag....though of course, someone has to buy it first.

Awww why mot sell it on ebay. Doesnt consignment store take more of a commission on the items. On ebay you can get most of your $ back :)

Well we worked out a deal. I said I would only sell it in the consignment store if I got a minimum price. So instead of doing a 50/50 split, we are doing like an 80/20. The store does get Chanel's but not very often so we were able to sign a deal (paperwork etc). I was still hard to think that it is just sitting in a store. The store has a website,so she might put it on there too. (I don't want to give all the details because I don't want to get accused of promoting my own sales on this site).

I am very apprehensive about selling on ebay. I have purchased Chanels and CLs before on ebay, but I"m so scared to sell.

Yes, it just has sat in my closet since I purchased it. I feel jumbos are too heavy and I prefer reissues, but I just had to search high and low for the limited edition black jumbo with bhw until I got one a few months ago. It is a beautiful bag but I do not carry because it is too heavy for me:( I hate it does not get used. That one is a regret for me and probably really the only one I knew better.

You might as well sell it, get some $ from it, then apply it to something you will absolutely adore and want to wear... You only live once, show off and wear a Chanel that brings you pure joy! That's just my opinion.

I have another purchase I regret. My flats. Prior to being pregnant, I wore a size 35. They were snug, but fine. However, after pregnancy, I can no longer fit into them comfortably for more than 5 mins. Such a waste since I was only able to enjoy it less than a handful of times. Thinking about selling it though.

@ roe, you are funny. Maybe place something on bottom of bag so it doesn't sag. And I agree, try selling it on eBay :)

A black lambskin backpack for $1995 15yrs ago in Vegas, should have bought a classic like a jumbo instead

This is going to sound weird since I know a lot of you ladies are jumbo fans...I regret purchasing my black caviar jumbo. It has been sitting in my closet for the last 6 months gathering dust. It is far too heavy for me to carry as an everyday bag and being only 5'1" who never wears heels, I feel it doesn't look proportionate to my size. Way too large.
