Hi ladies.. I am about to make my first Chanel purchase and I really need your help PLEASE. After reading so many threads, btw thanks so much they are all so helpful, it sounds like locating the purse I want, (black or red caviar jumbo or medium large classic flap), is almost impossible. I live in Vancouver and am planning on going down to Seattle for a shopping trip next month.. i was hoping to get the purse then.. What do you suggest? should I contact a SA in Seattle in advance?? Would a SA locate and hold a bag for a random stranger like me? Do you know the contact for SA, email perhaps?? i'm asking too many questinos here, i'm sorry.. Thanks so much in advance!!
