i just called the 5th ave store about an hour ago and asked about the heart-shaped coin purse. they said it's coming in some time later this month, and i told them to put it on hold for me because i'll be in the city from jan 30 to feb 4 so i'll get it while i'm there
i like the LV in Saks and Macy's; they have a good selection there
Saks LV has lots of the new red vernis (I was there on Monday). Saks is a bit smaller than Bloomies but they have lots of things hidden away, so if you are there and don't see what you want on display be sure to ask.
