If anyone still wants this bag, I saw it at my Saks tonight. It must have been a return since my store normally does NOT carry BV. It's on sale for $1888 and an ADDITIONAL 50%, making it UNDER $1k! The original retail was nearly $3k! It's the bag featured on this thread: http://forum.purseblog.com/handbags-and-purses/bv-perforated-leather-tote-is-it-worth-price-3759.html?highlight=bottega Give them a call if you want the bag--they open at 10 am PST. The number is 619-260-0030. Enjoy!
