It's time to save a little on BV! This month at Saks they will be having another gift card event, so you can save a little if you puchase at that time. (you will receive a Saks gift card of course) BUT...a few days later they are having friends and family discount. The SA's are pretty hungry to ring up sales and make you happy! The SA I was working with was breaking his back for me. Bottega is one of the few brands in handbags that qualify on this sale. I was told it is 20% off the BV's. The exact date was not told to me, but it is the third week of the month and possibly Oct. 25th. (maybe someone can confirm it here) If you are interested, you should start looking into it. That will be the best discount you can grab on in stock merchandise, so I was told. Also, I have really noticed a huge increase in BV merchandise at Saks in my area. It was once about 6 bags...maybe 8 at most, but it was easily three times that amount on this visit if not more. Even a few newer styles. They usually have the basics and only the classics. My guess is BV is gaining in popularity/demand just a bit. Not sure if that is good or bad for us all. Hope you all find some lovely things!
