.... as there is a price increase here on Monday - the SA told me today when we went to get my LV dream bag Damier Azur Speedy 30. it is my first LV bag as well she reckons prices will go up by 5% - now I don't know if this is the same for the rest of EUrope, it may also just be for Germany. I am so happy i got this bag - a partial gift from my parents, half self-funded - finished my studies and started my first job as a researcher making use of my long education. they had called me at the beginning of the week and told me that the bag was back in (i was on the waiting list) and i initially declined. but today mum, baby and I went and bought it!!!! yipee! the only annoying thing: a trainee SA packed and didn't know how to fold it properly and it has a few creases now .. but I am hoping these will come out when stuffing it. gotta surf this forum now to see about the cardboard in the bag etc..
