This was the first time I've ever gotten to participate in a PCE event! DH wanted to get me Coach for Christmas, so we made the hour trek in the nasty winter weather yesterday to our nearest Coach store. It was so much fun to actually be able to touch and feel the bags in person and not just make my choices from online pics. Plus, this is my first retail store purchase. All of my other bags have been outlet purchases or eBay finds. Anyway, I ended up with this. In black leather. In black signature and leather. DD even got in on some of the action. She had some Christmas money sent from her grandparents that was burning a hole in her pocket. With the PCE discount, she was able to pick up both of these in pink! She was in heaven!!! When we got home I put my purchases under the tree, but DH said to go ahead and use them before Christmas. Yippee!!!
