Ah, with a fickle public, who knows?
I'd say with the orders flying for the magenta with GH and other colors that only come with giant hardware that it's a hit at least initially.
Look at what a bomb the "whistle" and "hook" bags were; it seems as if only a few people on here liked them and that was indicative of the overall feeling towards a longstanding popularity.
Buy what you like without thinking of its resale value. IMHO.
I think they are enough of a hit where if they discontinued them, you'd be left with a rare commodity that would be worth more and not less.
You're too cute! lol. I agree with you though. When I was calling around to the department stores looking for my RH City the sales people kept saying, "But I have lots of giant hardware bags!". My honest opinion on why they may not be selling? I think it's because they are heavier and cost more money.I wish I knew too. That being said the last time I was at NM my SA told me that the GH bags weren't selling very well. (and there were a TON of GH bags and only a few RH bags). She thought this was because they were heavier than the traditional bag - and that since b-bags were known for their lightness maybe that had something to do with it.?????
It seems to me like they're gaining ground though - so who's to say?
I actually had the same thought this week about the RH bags - like "the GH bags are so popular (at least on tpf) that what if they discontinue the RH bags.
So basically I know nothing! haha!
