Just came back from the Long Beach Antique Flea Mkt. and saw lots of LV monos. Wouldn't it be fun to get together next month (Aug. 19) and have a look at what's there? At the least, we can brush up on "real world" experience as opposed to looking at eBay photos for auth. I saw alot of drek, but one dealer had beautiful pieces (and prices to match). I was looking at heat stamps, date codes, etc. but it would have been fun to have someone better versed than me for conversation. It starts early, but it's fun, I go every month. Waddya think?
