Hello everyone, as some of you have noticed, I am a newcomer to the Celine community and for some time I have been seriously looking, obsessing over the mini. Once I saw it in Pink, I thought for sure - THATS WHat I want! However, being in Canada, it became very apparent that I will not find it here, so i started online search. ANd then....I saw the RED and loved it even more, then I had my dilemma...and because I already own a PINK Kate Spade, i decided I will wait until a red comes along...
Well....I am on vacation right now in Moscow and yesterday I went just to have a look if they have any Celines at all in the store...Lo and Behold....there is a GOLD MINE!!! I have never seen that much CELINE in person!!

And it is just sitting there....people are just passing it by!!
There was this.....


and this....



and even this....



even more this...

Thank you for sharing. But do you know if they ship overseas? Any SA contact from there you might be able to get?

Wow, so many beautiful bags! Love your red mini and hope you'll share more pics!

Was this a Celine Boutique or a department store that carries Celine? If its a Celine store, they won't ship to countries that have a Celine store, which means they won't ship to the US (even though there's only one store all the way down in FLA!)

Thank you, it says on the label Celine Coquelicot Red Mini Luggage the colour is gorgeous and has sort of black piping around!

OMG, you are so lucky~!! Congrats!
Thank you so much! I couldnt believe my luck!!

Congrats !

But how about the price in Moscow as compared to US, Canada or Asia ?
I dont know how much it is in canada because I couldnt find it, but whatever it is I have to remember that there is also 13%tax. so in total i expect it might around the same. I paid 79 000 Roubles, which translates into 2500USD - what are the prices in US and Canada??
