After 4 long weeks, I located and received my Cabas Vinyl Bag. I will take the bag to Chanel here in London to authenticate it, but it has been used all beit gently, and I wondered if anybody else with the bag has noticed tiny white marks in the vinyl where it has been used. I am just delighted to have found the bag, and I really love it. P.S There is a little gold sparkly around the serial number which I believe to be authentic. Looking forward to anyone's comments re the vinyl if you have time!
