I would absolutely kill for a Brown Cherry Blossom LV bag - Papillion, Retro, Alma I really don't care which...

No luck in local LV stores - is there any hope left for me?

those bags have been completely sold out worldwide for months and months and months now...maybe a year? i don't know. but anyhow:

i think that ebay would be your best bet. go for one of the sellers who's verified as a seller of authentic by mypoupette.com.

You think so? I think its more really sold-out... it'd be a HUGE miracle if one could find a LV Cherry Blossom or Graffiti in a LV boutique.... its just not happening!

Street a Licious is right. It's impossible to find them in the stores. They are all sold out ! You need to go to eBay. And as Brian said; buy from a verified mypoupette.com-seller. My friend bought the papillon as she thought it was real, since it looked authentic in the pictures and it came with the receipt and such. She took it to the LV store, just to find out that it was like the best fake they had ever seen. Only difference from the authentic ones were the screws which were used.

well, it's a hard to find discontinued limited edition!
things like that go up in price

althoguh some sellers go a bit wild with the markups...$4000 for a bag that retailed about $1000 is a bit much.

The bags posted are all brand new. Maybe you can get a used one from some rich chic who wants to get rid of hers now that the trend is over. I think that the used/vintage LVs have more character to them anyway.

Same problem here. I just realized that I LOVE the cherry blossoms, soo much more than the multicolore. I'm trying to find one used; more character and lower price tag. I guess I'll be on eBay for a looong time...
