oh how i miss Canada ***sigh***
That's terrible !! I would complain too.. and hey, next time you really want something, I can always stick my name in for you. Anything for a fellow passionista !star3777 said:Well, Here is my Canadian experience yesterday... Received a call yesterday from LV for the Onattah Perforated HOBO in any color I wanted... I responded to the SA that I wanted the one Giselle has with the flowers on top of it not the perforated version of it.(size BTW, 19.5 x 13.3) BASICALLY, not one is coming to Montreal and 4 were sent to Toronto and are now spoken for. This is the second time I wanted a bag and could not get it simply because they won't send it to Montreal. I called Balharbour in Florida( I will be there in the next 2 weeks) and now I am on the wait list there. I just can't believe that the only LV that gets the collection bags go to Toronto in volume and not ONE comes to MTL. I made a formal complaint to LV yesterday. I can't wait to get to the U.S in the sun!
totally agree! please ship to canada eluxury...there's also a cute shop in yorkville (toronto) called augustina (on cumberland). they don't carry high end bags, bu they have bulga, kooba and lauren merkin for sure, maybe others. they try to bring in bags that aren't available elsewhere in canada. in halifax where i am, its hopeless! i just order online, or call holts or buy on trips to toronto or the US.
poor canada, you'd think our population and buying power could support more bag stores...i'd even be happy if eluxury started shipping to canada, it would be a start!
In Montreal, you can try Ogilvy, it has such name brands as LV, Burberry, and etc.All of my Canadian friends...
Besides Holts, can you recommend other sources for high-end bag buying? Anything new? Any deals you've come across?
I ordered two Tano bags recently, each under $200. The one, from pulsestl, I paid under $15 for customs because the store marked on the package that the bag was worth $50 (it was actually about $180). For the other, from Luna Boston, I paid $29 because the bag was marked with the amount I paid plus shipping (which was irritating - I shouldn't have to pay customs on shipping).^ $50!!! I expected it to be much less seeing as the bag is less than $200!
Does anyone know what shipping service they use (eg. UPS, USPS, DHL, FedEx, etc.)?
