Reading through all of these wonderful threads, it seems like alot of people take back items, when they are new and after they have used them for a while, because there is a little problem with it... I don't want this to sound rude or offend anyone, but maybe the prices are so high because so many people return bags and accessories... When you see alot of pictures with what looks like wear and tare and then they say LV replaced it... It also seems like alot of people take things back when the alignment is slightly off... I know we pay alot for LV items, but if people are returning things on a regular basis, just think how many LV's have to be destroyed because we want a perfect purse... I don't want to sound like I am lecturing but just think of the wasted time, material and money to make an item and then someone returns it b/c it is slightly unaligned or it started to wear in a week, you return it, and they destroy it and throw it out... This has been on my mind for a while and I just wanted to get it out there... What do you all think about this??? LIKE I SAID, I DON"T MEAN TO OFFEND ANYONE AND I AM NOT TRYING TO BE RUDE... I think this is just a point that alot of people don't think about when they are returning something! HOPE NO ONE TAKES THIS AS BEING RUDE!!!
