After many months I was finally able to get to Nordstroms where they had the bag of my dreams; the house check beaton. I got home to Canada and decided I must have it and called the very nice SA and she sent it right away. It finally arrived and the duty and taxes was almost $500. OMG. I couldn't believe it. I started crying on the spot. I knew I had to refuse it. I couldnt possibly spend $1900 (after exchange) plus $500 on a bag could I? especially since I litterly have no income at the moment (I own my own retail business). The poor posty. He though I was crazy, crying over a handbag. So my question is...was I right to send it back? It was going to be my first designer handbag. My perfect handbag. But can you justify $2400 on a handbag when you have no house, no car and no income?
