    Default Newbie from Canada!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Lucy from Canada! I've recently turned 20 and I'm a full-time student, so I don't have too much income to start a designer bag collection. I normally carry around a Lacoste bag, or a backpack. Actually, I've never thought about spending money on designer bags until RECENTLY (a few days ago to be exact), I saw my bf's sister carrying a very cute LV monogram canvas eva. It was love at first sight and I immediately wanted the bag to be mine! It was a strange feeling in the beginning but it soon developed into days of researching on designer bags. So my love spread from the LV eva to MbyMJ's airliner pilot bag and the Foley and Corina mid-city bag since I can currently afford those right now. I am still debating on which bag I should purchase, but I'm leaning towards the LV eva as my first designer bag.

    What sucks is that online shipping to Canada usually costs a lot, and purchasing a bag in Toronto is expensive because of the 14% tax-rate...

    So, HI EVERYONE!!!

    Buying goodies in store is usually the retail price + 14% tax. Buying goodies online means very expensive shipping.

    Also, not many stores in Canada carry designer handbags.

    I am feeling your Canadian pain. I fell in love with A bag at Katespade.com and they won't ship to Canada at this time.

    thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

    JessLR - Canada is not a cheap place to shop. Not only is it expensive, there isn't much of a variety either. Maybe it's just me but I'm really sick of shopping in Toronto. If you do want high-end designer wear, Holt Renfrew is the place to go, or somewhere on Downtown Bloor Street.
