My heart was pounding while reading early part of your post. So glad it’s a happy ending.
I’ve bought a few classic flaps throughout my bag-buying years. But I did sell most of them only because I don’t use them enough (partly thanks to the pandemic) BUT I did keep a jumbo. Although it is still underused, it will be a forever style, I promise.
Here’s mine. Single flap. Now that I chanced upon a preloved piece at a very good price, I’m contemplating to buy another jumbo.
By the way, although mini bag trend is here to stay, medium flap capacity is really little. It’s even more underused than my jumbo.
