How do you feel when an epi color becomes discontinued?

  1. feel good coz at least you got an item.

  2. feel upset coz now your bag isn't timeless/ a classic.

  3. feel worried/ maybe lose a little interest in your bag as it goes out of circulation

  4. feel happy, cos it's like now your bag is limited edition!

  1. think of it as a good thing or a bad thing when you already have an item in that color??

    i'm wondering about this as I have a friend who said that discontinued colors no matter how nice they were when they first came out sell for cheaper in the future since no one wants them as much as those that are still currently out. this has got me thinking as i told her i am thinking of getting a cassis speedy or alma and now we're debating about it. :thinking::sos: TIA guys!
     
  2. anyone?
     

  3. 2nd thread? Ahhh...this one has the poll! ;) Here's what I replied -


    I'd say that items in discontinued colors sell for more, not less, because of the fact that you can't find that particular color in LV any longer. I know that I've had people offer me money for my Fawn Epi Speedy because the color was discontinued many years ago (and because the piece has gold hardware). GL!
     
  4. I think this could have all been put in one thread.
     
  5. I think it depends on the style and the color. Some styles/color are just not liked by the majority of people there it was discontinued. In the future, the item may not fetch a higher price. It may IF you can find the right people who MUST have it.

    I think it is a risk, if the main factor you bought the bag in the first place was to resell at a higher price at a later date.
     
  6. thanks for the reply guys!

    sorry about the double post as the other one rejected the poll after I had typed it since i think i took a bit longer than 5 minutes.. but this one has the poll. will be asking one of the admins to delete the other thread.
