  1. Hello there my fellow tPFers!! As some of you may recall I put myself on a ban a "little" while back... But, I got around that ban with a little logic!! :graucho: Yes, I used "logic" to add to the collection!!;) My ban included a promise that I would not go into the "boutiques" to get tempted to buy more for a while... (Actually walked past the LV boutique that I usually go to the other day... Even saw my favorite SA in the shop, but did not enter!!! Boy, was that tough!!:sweatdrop:)

    My ban promise did not include "consignment shops" so I talked myself into going in for a look! Come and see what I found!!!



    Here they are all boxed up!

    Yes, 2 items came home with me...
    1st up this one!

    Yes, a White Kusama Speedy 30!! Now I have the White, Red, Yellow, and Green!! And, the best part is that I was able to get this baby brand new at 15,000 yen less than retail! I know... I am crazy!!! :cray:


    And, 2nd...

    Welcome my "like new" Aquarelle (Watercolor) Speedy 30!! She is in spotless condition inside and out!! There are just a couple of tiny spots on the vanchetta... I swear the previous owner must have never used her!!

    I had never bought one for myself in 2008, although I have helped others to add one to their collections... We'll see if I hang onto her or not... I was on the fence 4 years ago and am still there!! :lolots: (Mods, no solicitation intended!!!)


    And, here are the 2 cousins together getting ready to join the family!! :biggrin:
