Just wanted to say thank you... I am "sitting" on two Chanel bags today...received a call from one SA yesterday and a second today for two chocolate brown bags I have been waiting for... I had already decided against one, but the second call really tested me... I have been trying so hard to find a particular bag in a particular color... I tried to dial the SA back to confirm my purchase, but no one answered the phone (tried 4-5 times...still no answer)... So...I started my morning (oh, it's afternoon here now) read through the H threads... Told DH a few days ago that I was really feeling good about my fall handbags (especially with that black Birkin addition! ) and thought I was "done" until our November trip to Europe (LOL...have to remain "open" after the thread post about inventory in the Madrid H store)... OMG! You all saved me... I so don't need another "one season" brown bag! I WILL WAIT FOR THE GOLD BIRKIN! Yes, it is official! Thanks to the H forum I saved $2-3K today... Feeling good about a mental shift to the Birkin fund...thanks again!
