Hey everyone. I've been MIA from the forum for a while (busy, busy, busy) but I had to share my Pre-Sale find from the weekend...

A white mini bowling :yahoo:Only $720! :nuts: I have to wait until Friday to pick her up though.

For anyone who's interested they also had a FB medium matelasse :drool:, aqua medium matelasse, a brown bowling (maybe truffle?) and a few non-moto bags.

Thanks all. Yes, I will have to post pics when I get her. I never got around to posting pics last time I got a new b-bag, so maybe I'll make it a family pic :graucho:

Does anyone know if the 2006 white is more of an off-white? My mini bowling is from 2006 (not sure if s/s or f/w) and it is not a bright white. It's more of an off-white, cream-ish color. Is that just characteristic of the 2006 white? Or did I get a dirty bag? (It didn't look dirty or used...but you never know with NM).

She's a keeper anyway, I'm just curious...

Bump.

Can anyone give me a little more info about the 2006 white? I was doing a little research in the documenting colors thread and it looks like other peoples 2006 white bags are more of a winter white too, correct?

^Try calling Aloha Rag, they have a white bag in stock now which I believe was from 06. They are usually pretty informed about those things.

I think that many of the white pics tend to "whiten" the bags.

My 05 white work is really more of a bone color. This is a pretty accurate pic:

I was over there on holiday and was going to post about the FB Matelasse! It really is a beautiful bag...was this close to buying it! The SA was lovely, she would have sold it to me for the discounted price as I left on Tuesday, but I had already spent way too much $$$
Hope someone here snags it!! They also had the Grande Matelasse in truffle I believe...
Congrats on your mini bowling!!
