there's like a reserve number for when one orders items. i went to the boutique today to order the red patent leather coin purse (which i'm sure i've told everyone already ) and the first SA told me there were five left, but when she went to order it wouldn't let her. so another (more experienced?) SA came over and told her that it wasn't going through beause there are so few left. she said there are 5 circulating in other stores that still have them, but the 'reserve number' is 7 so they couldn't do it. interesting, i thought that if an item was still available at another store they'd ship it no questions asked. maybe cuz it's limited edition?
