Fate - it was meant to be!

  1. I've been wanting a red epi petit noe for ages. I had thought about let-trade but they've not had any for a while so I was resigned myself to having to pay full price when I go to France next month.
    This morning I decided to take a Marc Jacobs bag - an expensive impulse buy mistake - into a designer secondhand shop to sell.
    Now, here's the thing, I live in rural Wiltshire - where you don't see many LVs & I'd never been to this new to you store before.
    The owner is an ex-film stunt woman and is a real character and we got chatting while she checked over the Marc Jacobs.
    I glanced around and there right alongside me hanging on a hat stand was a red epi petit noe!!!
    She'd only brought it down from her London store that morning and had put it out just 30 minutes before.
    Now do you see why I say it just had to be fate.
    I snapped her up for £275. She just needs a new leather drawstring and after a good clean and polish she's looking great. I will post pix asap.
    :heart:
