Hi fellow TPFers, I am new to posting on the Chanel boards. Recently I bought a Chanel classic flap with ladybugs on it from a seller on bonzana.com. This was after getting the bag authenticated on the Chanel thread 2 times. I went through a bit of an ordeal with the seller as firstly, she sent me a bag with a different serial number as compared to the bag shown on her listing. Settled that matter after she sent me photos of the new bag which I had to authenticate (again). She claimed that she bought a few bags of the same style and the bag shown on the original listing was sold a few days before. The second problem arose when I asked if she had sent the receipt along with the bag as it was specified on the listing description that a receipt would be included. It took a while for her to reply, but in the end she sent me 2 photos of a template receipt in which she says the number does not correspond to the bag being sent to me. She further explained that I could not get the hardcopy receipt as they were claimed for tax refund. Then why include the receipt in the listing description? Would it be unreasonable of me to be unhappy with these (small?) inaccuracies in her listings? I do think it reflects on her level of conscientiousness and perhaps integrity as a seller. Now, I received my Chanel bag today. But as my excitement died down, doubts begun to creep into my mind. Thus, I have 3 questions to ask Chanel owners who are reading this: 1) Firstly, at the side of the bag, where the chains pull against the leather, there is an obvious indentation on the leather towards the interior if the bag. I am not sure if this is a normal occurrence with lambskin bags. But strangely enough, this is only observed on one side, whereas the other side is firm and straight with minimal creasing. 2) Also, are Chanel bags meant to be symmetrical? I noticed that as the cc clasp is locked, the bottom 2 tips of the flaps are not of equal distance apart from the corresponding bottom corners of the bag. If that makes any sense. There is quite an obvious difference in length, 0.5 inches longer on the right side as compared to the left! 3) Thirdly, Chanel products that come in the white Chanel boxes with black letterings and thin black base can only be purchased from France? The seller has claimed that the bag was purchased from Munich, Germany (CHANEL BOUTIQUE MUNCHEN). Thank you to anyone who has made the effort to read through that chunk of text. As a first time Chanel owner, I am very inexperienced and certainly need any guidance I can get from you ladies. I really do hope I don't end up with a fake as I've paid above the retail price for this bag.
