Hi all,

I am thinking of buying a bag that is very hard to get. It's the Prada Glace Calf Buelleto, I think it's called. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

There is a little "scruff" on the top corner, but it is a bag that is very hard to get and I am very tempted to buy it. I just need to know if the "scruff" is superficial and go ahead with the buy, or do not get it at all.

Is it worth the $1320???

Attached are a pictures.


Thanks!

Hrm... this is a tough choice!

The bag seems so expensive to be damaged :sad: But I may understand how you feel. I spent $1,200+ on my Miu Miu bow and it already has problems but I love it so much I am willing to keep it with the damages.

So it all leads down to, HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT/LOVE THE BAG?

If you love it alot, get it. It's worth your money if you love it and hard to find! :tup:

Well, I guess I'd get it if I were you- it's a very lovely bag and it'll scuff eventually anyway, when you're using it. My prada was a bit scuffed (calf glace zipper-my avater) when I bought it, as was my mcqueen novak. Just buy it an love it with it's unique scuff.

Which style is this bag? what's the regular price? are you buying from a department store? what's the return policy? ask for a discount since it is 'damaged'. if they give you a discount and you are allowed to do a return (in case) and you really like this bag, then I would buy it. Don't buy it just because it's 'hard-to-get'.

FYi, bluefly has something similar but in gray/slate combo from time to time (along with other styles)... it's slightly less: http://www.bluefly.com/pages/products/detail.jsp;jsessionid=ILuzIYmfbouMaXPWpGQAQj520AXm1t72dGQniyMtOgRCf1p3t3ac!-165491380!app5.l3.bluefly.com!7005!8005?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=2075834335&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2056196515&cm_mmc=CJ-_-2306722-_-2874631-_-Product%20Catalog&referer=cjunction_2874631_10436858_

P.S. hmmm... that bench seat looks familiar.... which department store are you at?

Wow... if you don't mind, how much discount did they give you? Was the $1320 price the full retail price for the purse?

Congrats on your new prada!

Thanks ladies. The discount wasn't very much; 5 percent.

The sales associate said that the "scruff" was very tiny and in the back of the bag; not noticeable. I trust her.

Sales tax and shipping was waived as well, and yes, the retail price was 1320.

Very nice...maybe you can bring it to a leather shop or lovingmybags.com and they can refurbish it for you...? Just a thought. They've worked wonders on other members' bags.

Love the degrade bags, congrats on a deal!
