Oh wow! Why, I wonder. I really love many of these models. Thank goodness I have Galliera but I was planning on getting the Thames as well later on. Too late now. I wish they would give us some kind of an advance warning and the bags wouldn't just suddenly disappear.It looks like they are discontinuing all bags that have big inventeur plate. Berkeley, Galliera, Thames... Only Hampstead is still on website, but maybe not for long...?
