I've been thinking a lot about this forum this week. Since we moved from LA, I've been going through H-store withdrawal, and while I periodically hear from my SA, I've realized that I've come to depend on TPF to show me what's out there; it's almost like an alternative H site! Not only that, TPF helped me add two of the bags on my wishlist in the course of one week--I never thought that would happen in a million years! I don't think I'm the only one out here who's been inspired/helped/influenced by TPF so what I want to know is how have the members here contributed to the growth of your H-collection? Either by posting their yummy pix, or helping you find a bag, or just by contributing invaluable info. I'll start--TPF's members have helped me add to my collection: 1 Poncho--after being blown away by LaVan's and her poncho modeling pic. 1 Violette Chevre Bearn--again, after seeing LaVan's gorgeous one--didn't know it was available in Violette at the time! 1 3H Bag charm--after seeing Bagg's and Wafaya's--didn't know this was out there! 1 Ulysee mini notebook-after reading the threads on it 1 Karo PM--after seeing 24's gorgeous pix and info on how compact it was. 1 Vert Anis 35cm Birkin--after reading Chanchan's thread in the inventory section, getting excited after Crochetbella pressed her nose up against the H store glass in SF to confirm it was still there, getting a ton of support from the members when it disappeared, getting Chanchan's lovely PM letting me know it was back, and getting help and encouragement from the MASTER enabler Shopmom who I was fortunate enough to meet in person the day I went to go see my Vert Anis. 1 Rouge VIF Chevre 35cm-after Japster did all that amazing legwork on researching re-sellers and finding out what they had in their inventory. I NEVER would have found out about this bag without her post. 1 Scarf-my first H scarf--after seeing how lovely shopmom looked in hers when I met her, I decided to look for one in an orange colorway. And dear Fopduck for sending me pix of what her 32cm rigide holds as I waffle between getting a 35 or a 32 in a Kelly. And don't even get me started on my wishlist which keeps changing after I see all these gorgeous pix....croc, box leather, a JPG, an HAC--these keep me up at night!
