My cousin will be in Paris around the holidays and she wanted to know of any locations to get a Celine Mini Luggage that wouldn't be as busy or not as known? Anyone know of any good little hidden spots? Thanks for any help.
I'm convinced that finding a Luggage is all about luck. Since it's around the holidays, it'll be unlikely that you'll find your dream luggage - if you're willing to compromise on size/colour, then maybe you'll get lucky.
I think your best bet is going to ANY Celine boutique in Paris, and if you find a bag that you like and they don't have it for sale in store, they can call another boutique (that has the bag) and put one on hold for you.
I know someone who went to Galleries Lafayette and found a Tricolour Mini Luggage that they fell in love with, but it wasn't for sale at Galleries. The SAs at Galleries called a boutique on Ave. Montaigne and they had the bag at that location, which is where she ended up buying the bag from.
Personally, when I went to Galleries Lafayette back in May, the Celine selection was VERY limited. They only had one mini luggage that was not for sale. But the staff are very helpful.
