I was looking at coach.com at the new items. I saw the Bleecker shopper for $548 and said to myself "oh that's pretty nice for only $548." Then I thought "Wait - ONLY $548 - thats going to be like close to $600 w/tax!" That is actually alot for a bag! When did we become so jaded with these prices that $548 starts to look cheap? I dont know about most of you, but I used to spend like $250 at the most for my bags up until maybe a year or two ago, then there was this huge jump to around $500-600 per bag. I love my bags and I know they are quality products, and I have no plans to stop purchasing - just an observation, I guess!
