Ok. So went out with a friend last night, and happened to be chatting to her sister-in-law about Christmas. She tells me that she purchased a GENUINE Chanel bag for her daughter. Being me, and being genuinely interested, I ask her where she purchased it from. She tells me that her Mum went to China and purchased this bag from a factory for the excelllent price of $100! Yes...you read right, just one hundred dollars! So now I'm floored on two counts. That blows my mind, and I try to tell her that as far as I'm aware Chanel only manufactures it's bags in France and Italy, She starts to get rather pissed off at me, and she tells me that being European (so am I btw) she happens to know that Chanel does NOT make it's goods in France and Italy, but that they are made at THIS factory in China only. I'm so flabbergasted that I just nod at her, I won't even get into it with her about the price..... So basically since I purchased the two absolutely beautiful, lovingly crafted Chanel bags that I have, I've found out that Chanel no longer makes its bags in France or Italy, but at this particular factory in China, and that they've also come waaaaaaaay down in price. I guess the recession must have hit Chanel hard!!! What would you do in this instance?
