I know I've heard on the forums that LV regularly does price increases and now instead of across the board is only doing them on items on a case by case basis. I would say in the past I never noticed them as I was not shopping to buy but now that I am... omgoshes! I very luckily paid the difference for my Neverfull GM awaiting the acceptance of my returned Neverfull MM (this was just a couple of days ago) only to see the price has increased by $360.00! Are price increase normally so much? Are they always annual? I had also had my eye on the Speedy 25 B in Empreinte and now that it is over $3,000.00 I am definitely undecided. What are your thoughts?
