Ok. So, I am having wait list issues with this bag. I just called the 5th ave store and spoke to a wonderful SA. They are getting their last shipment in a week to ten days plus a customer return. I range between 5 and 7 on the list, as some people are listed for both shapes. The SA was very thurough in telling me that this is more of a piece of artwork than a handbag. She said that you need to consider the weather before using the bag. Apparently the bag is painted and will be effected by heat, humidity and water. She said that the colors will run. I saw that someone posted that a friends bag ran and they returned it. Are they now telling us this because they will not accept a return on a bag that has issues?? As much as I love this bag, I do have 2 young children. I use (lovingly) my bags. I need to tote my daughters juice boxes, diapers, wipes, toys and whatever other junk they don't want to carry. My Bbags are great for this. I do not change my bag everyday ... actually not at all. I change it when I get a new one. Then the old gets packed up and stored, with hopes that someday my girls will bags just as much as I do. So my question ... For $2300 (plus tax) ... do you think that it is worth it? Do any of you who have this bag believe that it is really this delicate? HELP!!
