I just got a classic caviar in black and ordered a grand shopping tote in black, starting my chanel collection. One is for my birthday, the other is for a coming memorable event. I am preparing gifts for myself a couple of months advance, hehe . Yesterday I went to my local NM to check my desired bag. But the sales lady told me it was so crazy these days, everyone came in for chanel. The black classic caviar flap was sold out. They only have pink or lambskin. I was so sad and could not sleep last night, regretting having waited for two days to go to store. This morning after get up, I called and rushed to San Francisco store (my boss is on his business trip, that's why I can be off ). Very lucky, they have both black classic flap with gold and silver hardware. I choose silver since it looks younger and more modern. The GST in store was just sold out yesterday but the sales checked the computer and order one to deliver home for me. The sales said I made right desison since only these two product lines will increase the price. Really? Please, say to me if I made a good decision? The ones living in bay area could call or go to SF boutique, they seem to have more remaining classic stuff, if you want them badly.
