First and most importantly - WELCOME!!! - We love having new visitors and members and are thrilled you are joining us. We are a friendly and fun community and hope that you will find this forum helpful and that you will participate in our little purse corner here on tPF. We know you are eager to get to the good stuff, but if you could kindly read the recommendations posted here, we hope you and everyone would benefit ...Thank you!!! STICKIES - Stickies are threads that are at the top of the forum because they are very useful or commonly visited - they are placed there by moderators only. - If a thread or sticky is titled with "Pics Only" or "No Chatting" - please resist the urge to post any comments (even though we love commenting on and complementing one another) - this is to keep the reference thread useful - most people will post both on the sticky and on related threads where chatting is allowed - so you can verbalize your admiration for one another's goodies there instead.

Ladies are very thorough here and many questions about things like hardware, leathers, colors, cleaning etc..have been described in detail in previous threads - which will likely be much more comprehensive than responses you will get with a new thread. - If you post on old threads or just type "bump" it will automatically move old threads back to the top of the forum for others to see. If the search function ever is down, try using google.com: Type in the following: "Insert terms you want to search here" site:forum.purseblog.com/rebecca-minkoff There is a thread called ****Please Use the Search Feature/Make Titles Descriptive**** - Its a great idea! - Please avoid titles that do not inform of the purpose of the thread - we love mysteries, but we do like to have a general idea - there are just too many threads to read each day and threads without useful titles are not searchable. tPF RULES: Please read the official tPF rules here: http://forum.purseblog.com/the-glass...uidelines.html . Following them will help keep you out of trouble. FINALLY (and most importantly): Please HAVE FUN!!!! - This thread is not mean to be mean, rude or intimidating, it was started because many people thought it would help everyone get the most out of this forum. We are friendly and low-key - if your questions are not adequately being answered with threads/posts, or if you are shy, feel free to PM (private message) any of the mods for additional help.
