Hi everyone- My BF was desperate for a walnut Elisa and bought one from Macys right before Christmas. I "made" her take it back by convincing her it wasn't worth $748. Well, I have been hunting for one on sale ever since and mangaged to buy one on eBay for $599. THEN in the next 5 minutes I spotted one for $450 and bought that one for myself. I took my BF her's this weekend and she loves her! We split the cost so each of us got one for $525. I came home to my package and just like her's that I received on Wed., mine was SHOVED into a small box as well. Why would someone mail such a large bag in such a small box? I will post a pic of mine soon, but I know the BF's was gorgeous with a Bleecker patchwork scarf hanging from it. I don't know if I am in LOVE wtih the bag yet, but she is definitely growing on me.
