Sure, no problem! I understand how hard it is to track down those bags..it took me FOREVER to find my grey reissue in 227 as well! I will definitely be scouting those consignment stores for these gems. Will keep you posted!U goin tokyo, so nice, i hope i can be there.....if you happen to see any red classic caviar flap & anniversary grey reissue size 227 at a consignment shop, do keep me posted (hope you don't mind). However, i hope you have a good trip there and great shopping as well.
Thanks, you are wonderful...i think there is another consignment shop where you can check out as well, i'm not sure if it's located in tokyo. Here is their online website : www.elady.comSure, no problem! I understand how hard it is to track down those bags..it took me FOREVER to find my grey reissue in 227 as well!

For browsing, you have to visit the Ginza flagship store. It has a wall of chain belts!!!! I love chain belts so the first time I saw it, I was gobsmacked! Plus there are always interesting exhibits on the top floor. If you are looking for bags from one or two or even three seasons ago, as already mentioned by others, the concession at Isetan in Shinjuku is the place to go. The price however is at least 30% higher than US or HK so that place (in fact any Chanel boutiques/concessions in Japan) is really your "last resort" place!
As for Hong Kong, the more popular Chanel gets, the more difficult it is for plain Janes like me to get the bags I want. And since the price between US and HK appear to be comparable, if you see anything you fancy in HK, just buy it! Generally, the bags which are hot in Hong Kong may not necessarily be that hot in US and vice versa.
