Hi, a couple of weeks ago I told my bf that I like the LV Speedy and I might save up for it. He called me last night and said that his mother has heaps of designer bags she bought years ago. Coincidently, one of the ones that she has is a LV Monogram Speedy. From the way my bf described it, I think it's a 30. He said that u can tell that it's old but it's got that classic vintage look about it. His mother got the bag 15 - 20 years ago and hasn't used it for a number of years. She said that I can have it if I want. I'll have to go over and check it out. Well, the problem is I don't feel comfortable just taking the bag from her and give her nothing in return. Her birthday is in May so if I do take it from her, I may have to buy her a more expensive gift. What do u think? Do u think I should take it and then have to fork out an expensive gift for her birthday? How much should I spend on the gift? 50% of the new price? Or should I just save for a brand one? By the way, I have never owned a LV item.
