    Exclamation Re: Amazing Handbag Stories

    This isn't a super duper amazing story but a few years back, my MJ Stella Bag's zipper pull broke off . I bought the bag originally from Saks. I called MJ first for help. They weren't willing to help me directly and instead referred me to a leather repairs, etc place . I decided to take it back to Saks. I waited a very long time for it to come back. One day I called to check. They admitted to losing my bag! I was horrified ! The manager (then) was not the most helpful and attentive even though I think this was a serious problem . Another day I called to see if I could talk to her to follow up since she said she would try to contact the repair place they sent it to. The manager's manager answered the call since she was out that day. I told her I was really angry over the whole situation. I think this big boss huffed down the girl's neck to do her best to help me (which should have been that way from the beginning). She frantically called me back the next day and said they were calling all over asking for a possible replacement. Since it wasn't a current season bag at that point I was really worried that they would have bad news. They found a suitable replacement which had an ivory suede lining instead of my cotton lining (which I preferred). Since there was none left in the cotton lining, I accepted it. My initial poor bag is out there somewhere..... That whole thing was crazy!

    I was going through a Dior Gaucho phase and I saw this authentic black mini gaucho in excellent condition on ebay at starting price of $400. It costs almost $2000 new in Australia. I was going back and forth whether I wanted to get it. Finally, on the last day of the auction, I put in a bid. As I was watching it in the last 10 seconds, someone put in a bid of $450! Sneaky! I hit refresh and in the last 3 seconds, my maximum bid came up and I won! It was so nerve wrecking. It is now one of my favourite bags. I've sold other gauchos but this is the only one I've kept. I think I ended up paying $480 with postage for a bag worth almost 5 times that.

    Thanks to Gungy who found this Jenny Yuen Cleo on ebay and posted about it, I bid on it and won it for $39! :gi67: It retails for $325. Needless to say, I was ecstatic about the awesome deal I got!

    Cool blue; I've been into blue much more lately because I love the way they look with denim. My mom and DH keeps teasing me that everything I own is black e.g. blazers, coats, bags... Over the years I've become more open to brilliant colors .
    Hopelessly handbag addicted !
