My mom does a lot of shopping in this consignment shop in an upscale area of town. She likes designer purses but is by no means a purse freak like we are! Anyway, she gives the shop owner so much business that she called my mom this week when a cerises speedy came in!! It belonged to an 80 year old woman who wasn't using it and wanted to sell it--the consignment shop owner was going to sell it for $800 but after a couple weeks no one had jumped on it so she called my mom and mom got it for $200--can you imagine! I don't think the lady selling it really knew what it was worth--I assume it's quite a lot since they don't make them any more. She's giving it to my sister for an early christmas present. I looked it over and it does look absolutely authentic...what a deal! I wish she had bought it for me!
