When purchasing your Chanel by which method do you prefer? Getting a Chanel as a gift is always a winner - but, do you get a bigger high from the Chanel Boutique or do you like the Fine Department Store experience better? Maybe it is the thrill of the hunt and bidding on eBay to acquire your perfect Chanel.. So, here is a poll to see what is the favorite and why? 1.) A Chanel Boutique 2.) A Fine Department Store ( in store purchase) - Neiman Marcus, etc. 3.) eBay Auction 4.) Other - Purchase from friend, Order from catalog from fine department store, etc. I enjoy the Chanel boutique experience the most. I enjoy my relationship with my SA there and the overall Chanel boutique experience. Even down to the Chanel bags in which my purchases are carried out of the store. The in store purchase at a fine department store would be next. Too afraid to try eBay, yet - but I can see where the bidding process could be addictive.
