1st time Chanel owner w/ a question on the Classic Flap...

Jan 28, 2007
Hi All! I'm a new member to the Chanel forum. I've always coveted the Classic Flap in Black Lambskin and Gold Hardware and knew I would someday own this bag. That day came on August 12, 2009 during Holt's PSN night! :yahoo:

It was a relatively good experience. Mind you I did wait around for almost an hour before being helped as there were just so many people there! I can't believe the number of people that go in and go out without having to know the price, or inspect the bag if there are any scratches.

I will definitely post pics once I get home from work! But I do have a question regarding the zipper pull on the inside flap. What is the zipper pull supposed to look like? Mine is just a little stub of lambskin leather. Is this normal? :thinking::sweatdrop::shrugs:

I've seen tons of pics of other Classic Flaps with either a circle zipper pull or a long rectangle zipper pull with Chanel engraved. I hope mine is normal. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is the most I've ever spent on a bag and it will be the most. The only other purse I plan to get is the PST which is considerably less.
