My Grand Bucket came back from Paris today!!!

  1. DH, the kids and I went to Athens back in Nov. and of course our FIRST stop after checking in was .... the Louis Vuitton store!!! I wanted to get a price to replace the lining on my Grand Bucket (I had that terrible peeling thing happening) and possibly to replace the vachetta - needless to say, I picked up my new Speedy 40 that day too!!! Yahoooo OK, back to the bucket ! lol... So I was told 220 Euros (about $321.00) for the repairs and DH and I were like "send it to Paris"!!! So I got the call on Friday she was back and they couriered it to me today!!!! I am SO excited!!!! It's a BRAND NEW bag!!! Looks SO fabulous!!!

    Here's the before pics: :shame: (orig. bought in '99)
