I don't know if there is another thread entirely devoted to venting about the price increase, but I figured I would start one anyway. I'm still steaming about the fact that my medallion tote went up so much in price. I think that my days purchasing Chanel bags are over. I simply can't justify the prices. I have heard through the grapevine that they are trying to compete with Hermes. If that is the case i know for a fact that I won't be buying anymore Chanel bags. The day they start making each and every Chanel handbag by hand is the day that they should consider being more competitive with Hermes. Sorry if that offends anyone, but I don't think I am the only one who is getting a bit ill with Chanel's price increases.
