OMG! I LOVE COACH!!! - Happy's Obsession
or what I do between bouts of Real Life
I went to SouthCenter mall yesterday for dinner and a movie with a friend. While we were there, I went to the coach store. I'd seen some ocelot print bags in Portland, but the two that were there were too small, and there were no other larger ones online.

As I went in, the saleswomen were very helpful (as always). As I was just starting to look, my friend called out to me excitedly. I turned... and she had an ocelot print bag in a decent size! It was beautiful! I was so excited! I hurried over to look at it, setting my purse down.

The saleslady asked if she could look at my 4 year old black Carli. I had no idea why, but was so overjoyed by the ocelot bag that I said OK, keeping an eye on it of course. The seemed to be looking all over the top edge of the bag.

My friend & I were discussing the bag. She asked me how much it cost - $398. Wow, more than I wanted to spend. Then the saleslady told me that there was fabric damage on the top edge of my Carli (which I knew), and that it was a manufacturers defect. That because it cost the same as the new bag, they would take my old Carli and exchange it straight across for the new one!

But I love my old bag. Yes, it's a little damaged, but that means that I can travel with it, and not worry about something happening to it. It can get shoved under a seat, and no worries.

The saleslady must have seen the look on my face, because she then said that instead of exchanging it, she could sell me the new bag at 40% off! I squealed, "I'll take it!" and literally jumped up and down!

Here is an on-line pic of it, and here is the real thing!

And here's my old Carli, with the fabric damage. I squished the top down a bit so you can see it, it's right along the crease at the top of the fold.
