A few months ago while out on business, I hopped into an H store, real quick. Wanted to take a look at a certain scarf, but I wasn't expecting much. The S.A. had never met me, but we fell into conversation easily and talked about things we loved, grown up with, and I mentioned my grail bag. Stay here, she said with a monster grin, and hustled off to the back. So there I am, suddenly alone, waiting for... something. Would she return with my grail bag? She did not. She brought my almost grail bag. As she unwrapped it, I saw perfect, even scales. It was my grail bag style of choice. BUT... the size was one size under what I initially wanted, and while it was in the right colour family, it seemed too bright a shade for me. So I stood there (probably still gaping) and thanked her, but said I had to decline. Someone else in the store swooped in, seconds later, and bought her. I was glad to see someone so happy, and I walked out without any sense of regret. But in the many months later, I have never been presented this bag again, and have been told by local S.A.s I was lucky to have even seen it. Did I make a mistake? Was I much too picky? I know they are grail bags for a reason, but has anyone passed on an almostgrail and regretted it later, or hailed it as the right decision?
