We recently got an email from Gabays saying that they got a shipment of all our favorite designers. Of course, they didn't drop names but we had a good feeling. For the sake of good journalism we had to check it out.
We were glad we made the trip down town because we weren't disappointed and even Lynn Yeager would be pleased.
What did we find: Yellow Fendi rain boots for $85 down from $210, Jimmy Choo suede high boots $480 from $1195 and Lanvin bedazzled evening shoes $610 from $1195. The highlight, however, was the great assortment of quilted Chanel bags. We were drooling over a metallic teal Reissue that was marked $1599 and a gray Classic Maxi for $2080. There was also a black Classic Maxi and some Valentino styles.
We overheard that the shipment was from Bergdorfs and included a total of about 50 main floor bags. Some are slightly damaged. The ones we saw, however, were in perfect condition.
