'Merci' for the new concept store - merci

The magical florist part of the new concept store 'merci' that welcomes you on the street.
The housewares section of this multi-tiered palace of creativity.
This plentiful little car welcomes you in the courtyard as you enter the store. It symbolizes what you may find inside, a bit of everything!
The clothing sections varies from specialized items from Marni, Stella McCartney, and YSL for the store, to Vanessa Bruno, Isabel Marant, Acne jeans and vintage finds. The light makes shopping a pure joy.

A certain percentage of the profits goes to a charity. There are linens, housewares, furniture and a used book cafe in one fabulous space. I have always loved the idea of concept stores, I just never have really fell in love with one. This store has two cafes, a used book store, clothes, gadgets, an Annick Goutal refill station for your favorite Parisien scent and amazing light. Price points range from 2 euros for a used book to 1000euros for a Haute Couture dress. I bought linen pillow cases for 29 euros and a fab straw hat for 35 euros. The owners of this wonderful concept store started Bonpoint, sold it and apparently got bored and created this space. ( I heard this from a good friend of theirs who happens to be a friend of mine!) Please visit it at 111 boulevard beaumarchais in the 3eme.

Bonjour. Je me permets de vous ecrire car j'ai lu sur le forum de 'purseblog' que vous avez acheté un muse 2 YSL au prix (incroyable!) de 580euros...
Vivant également en France, et trouvant les prix boutiques extremement élevés (1500 à 1900 euros), j'aurais souhaité vous demander conseil quant à l'achat de ce sac à bon prix (ou pourrais je chercher/aller?)
J'aimerai acquerir le modele 'large, embossé croco en nubuck'. C'est un réel coups de coeur.
D'avance, merci de l'interet que vous porterez à ma requete.
