Some stores leave SO much stuffing in the MJ bags that they look like they've been filled with helium! I was mentioning this to my SA at Nordstrom, and she commented that she does find that once people take some or all the stuffing out and try their own things in the bag, they are more likely to buy. In fact, I've noticed they now display the bags at my local Nordies with about half as much stuffing, and I think it's so much smarter; you get a better idea of what the bag really looks like! Anyone with me on this? Case in point... I recently saw a woman with a fab MJ bag, and it turned out to be a bag I'd seen in person, but NEVER would have purchased because it looked too formed. I didn't even recognize it (it was the Ursula Quilted Hobo). But IRL on her shoulder, it had a nice slouchy hobo look. I bought one a week later.
