  1. My DD was in a badminton tournament at Bristol today, so I took the opportunity to visit Shepton Mallet. The first bag I picked up was a lemon soft grain Roxanne which was marked as damaged. I checked with the SA who pointed out a small graze in the leather on one of the pockets and a small amount of discolouration on the same pocket.

    I kept the bag with me while I was browsing. The same SA came up to me & asked if I was interested in Roxannes in any other colours. I have been lusting after an oak Roxanne but did not expect one to come up at an outlet. She came back with an oak Roxanne, again marked as damaged. The damage was dappling to the leather on the back (similar to water marks if not sprayed with Colloni & a small biro mark on the inside flap).

    With both items in hand I went to the till to check the price of the lemon Roxanne as it did not have a price on it & to my surprise & the SA's surprise, both items were reduced by 50% on the marked price so for just over £350 I got both Roxannes. :woohoo:

    Just had to have another look before leaving and spotted a small Roxanne vinyl tote - again half marked price with a very small amount of damage on one of the corners - I couldn't find it - it took the eagle eyes of my DD to spot it.

    As I was leaving the SA was putting out a black Roxy and a choc Roxy but I did not see how much they were.

    All in all a very successful day out. The only down side is that I now have to postpone the Mitzy Tote until I have replenished my bag fund.

    Looking forward to taking oak Roxy to work tomorrow. :yahoo:
