How to get a mini in Europe


Feb 3, 2017
Hi there!
I'm currently trying to get a mini flap bag (which is also my first ever Chanel bag). I know it usually takes a lot of effort to get one, so I was hoping some of you might be able to give me some advice. I visited two boutiques today and they only had exotic minis and one in patent leather. One of the SAs wrote down my contact details, but he also advised me to come back regularly and keep asking if they have anything new. As far as I know we don't have actual waitlists in Europe (or Germany at least) it's first come, first serve.
To everyone of you who managed to get a mini:
how often did you visit the boutique? Does it make sense to go back to the boutique every week or should I just wait until the new collection arrives? Does each boutique get different items? Is it possible to order items from a boutique in a different city/country and have it delivered to my nearest boutique?

I hope you guys can help me track down my mini :smile:
