Thanks to the sale sighting post in this forum, I was able to get a Black Venetia during the sale at Nordstrom. I picked up the bag today and while it's nice, I don't think it's in pristine condition. 1) The feet has many scratches on them 2) The plastic protective piece on the push lock is missing on the bottom side of one of the push lock 3) There are some minor marks/scratching on the leather. I think I was one of the last to pick the bag up so it's the last one in the store. I can't exchange it even if I want to. The girl assured me it wasn't a floor model but how would I know. And it didn't come in a box, just a dust bag. Is that right? So, I was wondering what condition was your bag when you got it. Also, what color is the lining of the black bag? Mine is grey. For some reason, I thought it would be brown suede like my bordeaux zip clutch. The stitching is black, which I like. That's the correct color for Fall 07 bag right? Over all, I'm happy with the bag. It's just that when I got my zip clutch from Shopbop, it was packaged so nicely and the clutch was absolutely flawless so I expected the same from Nordstrom.
