So... many of my posts were just to complain about bad service and bad quality.... well I just have to rave about the great experience I had at the LV store in Palo Alto. MUCH better than SF store. The store is much smaller than the one in Costa Mesa but the sales people were all very friendly!! Instead of feeling like you are walking into a stuffy designer store and feeling out of place you feel like you are almost amongst family there!! Non of the SA were snobby, all friendly and casual. The store was quite empty so many SA gathered around when my mother and I waited for one SA to finish transaction at the counter and happily looked on as we tried on various bags and offered their honest opinions. The were happy to show us many many bags and did not seem to mind at all. Great experience for a change!! I was very very happy with everyone there. I had my eyes set on a Popincourt Haut previous to this experience but now I think the Cabas Piano looks better.
