Does the fact LV bags never go on sale make you want them more?

Just wondering what your thoughts are on if you think LV popularity is correlated to the never on sale, always in short supply for the popular styles marketing genius that is LV.

Went to LV on Black Friday this year, and a bunch of non-LV regulars crowded in the store with the rest of us LV regulars more for the "follow the crowd must be good" mentality. Two older ladies asked me "oh is it all on sale, is that why so many people?"...and I said "nope, never on sale, we are just all obsessed!

I find myself not really wanting to get bags like Gucci, Prada, Burberry because they are always on sale...heck DSW shoe store a few years ago were selling Gucci bags for 80% off!!! That just kinda turned me off to Gucci actually, and Burberry always goes on sale and now their outlet stores carry quite a few of their recent styles only a month or so after they come out in stores. I have a few of both brands, but I don't love them or take care of them as much as I do my LV bags.

Thoughts?

No, I wish they would go on sale sometimes. I don't see anything wrong with sales. :smile:

I think most LV fanatics think alike. I don't go for all the designs in LV, only certain designs will attract me. But the fact that yes its never on sale. The limited seasonal items available. And not forgetting those cute and lovely bags thats always comes up when i decided its enough and lure me into LV stores :P

I like that LV doesnt' have sales -- it would be a disappointment to get a bag you love then see it on sale a few months later.

Nope. I like the quality and style. In fact, I'm about to take the Prada bag off my wishlist because I keep reading about quality issues. That leaves one Chloe and the rest LVs.

Not exactly...I buy because I love the styles. But it does make purchase decision slightly easier as I don't have to decide whether to buy seasonal items now or "wait till they go on sale"! :smile:

I am a very casual woman, so I love that many of the LV mono and damier bags fit my lifestyle. I buy them because they hold their value and I can resell when I am tired of them without losing much of my investment. I take very good care of my bags and my Ebay customers are always thrilled when I list because they are all out of my own collection. The fact that they never go on sale helps keep the value of my bags high. I'm glad they never go on sale. This would definitely hurt the resale market.
