So this morning I saw the mouse Banana Hobo on the Bloomies website that was posted in the sale thread. I had given up on this bag and thought I'd never find it. Well, by the time I got to work to order it, it was gone. Has anyone seen one in person for a comparable price ($537 on sale)? I just might die without it. Thank you!

I called Bloomingdale's and no stores have it. So sad. Guess I'll move on to calling NM stores now.

Thank you! I have it in my cart and it comes to $716. My dad was going to buy me the one at Bloomies for $537, but I just don't know if I can ask him for nearly $200 more. I'm going to have to continue to think about it.

And Nordies is a no-go, too. It went on sale last time. Bloomies had an almond one, but I'm not too familar with that color (in person). I already have an oatmeal multipocket, and they kind of seem similar. Maybe I will think about $716 at shoptwigs. If only it was just 10% more off, then I'd buy it.

Do you think they would honor a competitor's price? Did you bookmark the actual Bloomies page that reflected the price?

I just bought the almond one from the Purse Store in Maryland. Though its no longer on their site, you can call and see if they still have it.

I got mine for $670. You don't pay sales tax and I think they have free shipping.

Beware: the top opening is small IMO and the zippers are all sticky.

Thank you, ddo830 and SuLi. I'll email and see if they price match. Ddo830: do you have photos of your bag and you carrying it? When did you order it? Thank you!

Good luck on your quest MandB! I know how frustrating the search can be...but it's so worth it. You'll find one eventually!

Thank you for all of the help. I emailed shoptwigs to see if they have sales/price match and the woman who replied was very friendly and helpful. She said that she would check and see if they could price match, so I sent her all of the info I had (Bloomies online $537, Bloomies in-store in almond - newer season even - $626). I'll wait and see what happens. There's no way to prove the $537, though, as the link is now gone because the last one sold. Hmmm...

No further word from Shoptwigs yet. I just saw this bag in the reference thread and it looks huge! Is it? I mean it looks really enormous. I love the mouse color, but...

I seen one last week at nordstroms at the grove(CA) last week. I believe it was around the same price as the one at bloomies! There was only one though so you may want to call right away.
