In anticipation of the price increase and hardware change, I finally bought one of my biggest wishlist items--the Damier Papillon 30! Yeah! I looove it! She's got the old hardware and was made in France exactly one year ago. The LV in Palo Alto, Stanford Shopping Mall has more Damier Papillon 30s with the old hardware in stock if anyone is interested. It's my 3000th post, too! Woohoo!
