I'm posting here because I figure fellow bag-lovers would understand/sympathize. I'd been lusting after a bag for weeks, it's a small no-name independent brand that was only available on an online boutique I was looking at. After waiting a long time it was finally on markdown and I bought it right away. When it arrived I loved it in person - cue happy fantasies and visions of all the outfits I'd wear it with and the events I would use it. Then around Thanksgiving I saw that it was still on sale, and my mom wanted a nice evening bag...I purchased another one and got a confirmation email right away. Two days later I ended up giving her the bag I already had, because her birthday was coming up and I thought it'd be nicer to gift her in person. Yesterday (11 days later) I realized I never got the shipping notice, so I emailed them and find out that it was out of stock! This is after they already charged my CC and I've paid it off. So they've had my money and never thought to tell me that they didn't have the bag anymore. Even though I'll get a refund, I'm mostly sad that the bag I've been wanting for such a long time, and then even had in my hands(!) is gone and irreplaceable. My mom has told me how she showed the bag off to her friends and they were envious of her. So, I'm just a little bummed right now.
