  1. Hello! New to the Bal forum, but have been reading it incessantly for the last couple of months. I've always liked the style of the City, but until recently, never really felt it was me. For some reason (possibly due to not having bought any bags for over a year, haha!), I recently became a little obsessed with getting a City in a bright color, which would suit me better.

    I'd never before bought a higher end bag preloved, and thought this was the perfect time to give it a try. I ended up finding a 2007 French Blue RH City at Yoogi's Closet, and placed my first order with them! This was back on January 28.

    Well, less than a week later, it arrived to me in Canada! I was super excited, of course, and then a bit crushed when I discovered that YC had sent me not my Bal, but...a Chanel flap. I believe I was the most disappointed woman to ever receive a Chanel bag! :biggrin:

    Anyway, I contacted YC immediately, and they were very good about the whole thing. It turns out that they had mixed up two bags, and sent my Bal to somebody else. I shipped the Chanel back to them, and they promptly reimbursed me for the return shipping plus the customs fees I had incurred. They also offered me a 10% discount on the Bal, if I still wanted it (which I did!).

    Unfortunately, it took a long time for them to receive my Bal! Seems like it might have gotten stuck in US customs for a time, and they were unable to ship it back to me until last week. Amazingly, Canadian customs was super fast and I received my Bal today! It took over a month for me to get my bag, but everything worked out well in the end. I'm pleased with the way YC handled the situation, and this error wouldn't stop me from shopping with them again.

    Finally, here's my new-to-me 2007 French Blue City RH! It came with the dust bag, spare tassels, but no mirror (I'm not fussed as I'm not the type to resell my bags, and I don't see myself using the mirror, anyway).

    I'm in love with the color, and really needed a blue bag in my collection! Also, it's so lightweight—makes my Chloes and RMs feel like anchors.

    One last thing: should I get the bag authenticated in this forum, even though it's from Yoogi's Closet?

    Thank you all so much for letting me share, and also thanks for the many Bal forum posts I've read and learned from!
