Question of what happens if you are on a wait list...

Usually, they will call you and ask if you want the bag and then take your CC info over the phone...I've never experienced holding my CC info and charge without my ok. I think it's pretty irresponsible of the SA. Also, you should be able to get 100% refund within a number of days...after which store credit. Unless the item was on sale or final sale.
I think it depends how hot the bag is. If you give your CC#, the intention is that you are agreeing to buy it once it comes in. Otherwise, you would just give it when it comes in.
I realize reading cristina's thread about her new Chanel reissue 2.55, that it could be creased in the wrong place, damaged or something. Even though it is the Celine Boutique and the SA was really nice, it was the only way I could secure the purchase if this bag I really want. I guess I could ask them again tomorrow. I will ask and see what they say if I get to the store and I don't like the bag.

Does anyone know how big the Large Clandestine Celine bag is???
