    Yeah the hologram sticker is totally in the wrong place. That was the giveaway for me.

    Ange your bag "looks" good, but sometimes it's really hard to tell from pictures. The leather doesn't look very grainy, and I'm not sure it's supposed to be that smooth looking.

    Ok so the only Chanel item I own is a vintage bauble bracelet (thats broken at the time ) so I'm not an expert on looking at a bag and telling if its for real.

    But I've been perusing eBay and stumbled across my absolute dream bag!!!!
    heres the link : CHANEL - BLACK VINYL FLAP BAG - BRAND NEW w TAGS -$1995 - eBay (item 270272179917 end time Sep-08-08 15:24:53 PDT)
    Item Number : 270272179917

    I would seriously sell half (no MOST) of my collection just to have this bag, I want it so badly! I'm seriously running around the house at 1:00 frantic trying to find any and everything I could sell to justify this bag (still paying off the Mancrazy)

    any help in regards to authenticity would be greatly appreciated

    I'm pretty sure it's authentic dani, although, I'm sorry but I don't like it very much. For a non-leather Chanel, at that price, I feel like you could get a batter one in leather.

    yea, I do love the Classic Flap (always indecisive on color, right now I'm obsessed with the tan/beige ones, but at the time I don't have money to buy one either at a boutique or an authentic internet find) But, I'm a jewelry major so that would explain my infatuation with this one, I'm forever doodling diamonds endlessly and make a lot of projects using those shapes. If it is reasonable I may get it and then sell most of my bags to justify it, considering most of them just take up shelf space.

    Yea I'm in love beyond belief, but the kicker is I'll go run it past my mom and I won't survive, I think she might kill me as I always say "this is the last one for a long time" and then I want a new one a month later.

    So the Malleries's website is trustworthy? My 3 cousin is offering me 0 a certain percent off % for the Medium Classic Flap but even for the price being offered is too much for me to spend (it will break my heart). Im on a $1200.00 budget. Should I buy a new one from my cousin or a used one off Mallaries?

    What's the different in price? If not huge, you might as well get a new one. Personally, I don't mind getting an excellent condition used Chanel if the price is right. I can't bring myself to pay over $2000 for a bag even if I could afford it.

    ^ that is exactly how I feel, it hurts to buy anything over $1500.00 because I could so buy a new apple mac. Well with my little connections at Chanel I can get a brand new medium caviar flap for $1750.00 or a used one at Mallaries for $1000.00. I dont know what to do .
