I'm not one to normally promote my own site, but I've added a "module" to list all the sites for authorized Balenciaga retailers. I didn't add the department stores (since they don't actually have any pics of the bags on them), and I can't think of any others. Would you all mind taking a look and letting me know of the ones that I've missed?

Thanks!

one other idea...sometimes i ask if they can divide the purchase into two cards so he doesn't know the entire amount and we get some points too

I know this is OT but since I've shared so much of the bad news with all of you, I HAD to share this good news: my brother had an operation to "start putting back together all the things" they had taken apart (they had redirected some veins). It was the FIRST time since all of this has been going on that everything went PERFECTLY!! So much so that they let him go home this evening and he insisted on driving (even though he's still hooked up to some tubes and stuff!) When he got home, he wrote a note to my sister-in-law that said "call my sister and tell her I'm driving again" - he was so thrilled. Next (and hopefully last) surgery - a 12 hr. biggie, the first week of March. I am so happy. THANK YOU ALL FOR HELPING ME TO GET THROUGH THIS!!!
P.S. I'm contemplating the ink city. Just emailed Aloha Rag. (Okay - now I'm not completely off topic)

Green, I was just over there checking it out and came back here to say WOW! What a great list - you've put so much work into it! But I think the link you included above might be your own maintenance link? It just took me to the squidoo front page. Nonethess, your new page rocks!!!

ETA: Okay, when the forum tells me I have to spread the karma around before giving it to Greendrv again - just how far do I have to spread it?? I've been quite karmarific lately, but there are a couple of people it won't let me re-karma-cise. (um, that's a word, right?) What's up with that?

My guess is that she was disappointed when it arrived, so she listed it right away to maximize her advantage of being the first Ink on ebay, no matter what the leather quality might be like. Smart move, in my mind.

Yeah, so I'm about as far from an expert as you can get. There must be quite a bit of variation among the bags, because the leather on mine really looks nothing like that. Sorry!

the leather is AWFUL! If this is any indication of the new leather, count me OUT!
The color in the photos is WAY off the appearance of the bags I saw in Zurich. It was much nicer IRL...
