Thanks!!Oh...I guess I skipped over the "brand new" part.
There was one on let-trade for the low $200 and lvlady99 had one for $240 and both were in excellent condition. Only thing was the vachetta patina.
Yes, be patient...$400 for that clutch is...meh!
I think the lvlady99 one was in pretty darn good condition:

This one is also pretty good (although seller feedback is low)

And this one's pics are bad, but the bag looks good:

Brand new too!
So definitely...if you wait around...and keep looking I'm sure you can find one in pristine condition for less than $400! Good luck!
