Does anyone remember how long they were around in stores for in the USA, and Japan as well? I ask because I have been emailing my cousin with the details and pictures of damier Sophie, as well as giving her a list of all the stores in Tokyo. They will be there in December and I just don't know if they'll have any left by the time they get there. She wanted me to "make sure" that the store they're going to will have one available, but I told her that's pretty much impossible, considering how I don't speak Japanese and I don't know if I can wait list for one. I did tell her though, if the store they're going to doesn't have one, she can have an SA at the store they're going to check the stock for them and see if there are any left. I just don't know if there will be any left in early December. I guess another possibility is...well, my SA is Japanese, maybe I could ask her to help me call the store they're going to and put me on the waiting list. If possible, maybe I'll give her my CC info and she can give it to the store and just have them charge my card right away when it's available and have my cousin pick it up later on. But then again, not sure if that can be done and not sure how my cousin would be able to identify herself as the person picking up the Sophie for me.
