I have to tell this story.... During one of my outlet trips a year or so ago there was a City Bag in a unique color, Aubergine (a lovely, deep purple). I was waiting until I was broke to use it. Well, my mother's boss was retiring and we'd gone shopping everywhere. She was kind of strapped for cash but wanted to buy her something nice as she was really a great person to work under. We went to the jewelry stores, department stores, so many shops and couldn't find anything affordable. So I offered my mother the City Bag and matching coin purse to give as a gift, free of charge since I knew that it would be appreciated. Needless to say, her boss was overjoyed and told all of her friends about her present. Thanks for reading, I had to get it off my chest because there are times that I really, really miss that bag. I actually have to tell myself that I can get a City Bag anytime at the outlet and that the Aubergine bag would have turned dark as a black bag anyways. A few weeks ago my mother was hinting about a black bag in my collection and make an off-hand, joking statement about me never giving her a Coach...I told her she indeed had gotten the ultimate sacrifice from me already, first one free, the others she'd have to buy.
