I gave in and ordered the MED Heritage tote before PCE ended. It arrived today and when I opened the box I fell in LOVE! The color and the coated canvas is more beautiful than I had expected! Then when I pulled it out of the box, I thought I must have made a mistake and ordered the small and with all the mix ups I've read about, I thought anything was possible. Well, it is the MED , all the numbers match up but the size is too small. ( for me) It barely measures 10" I called my favorite SA , she is the BEST, and she ordered the large , with the 25% , so I can compare the two. Tanukiki, you aren't the only one playing the waiting game!
