This just proves what I've always said that if you invest in iconic pieces from luxury brands, like Fendi, the value does go up. Of course, accessories as investments need to be kept in pristine condition. Since I did buy this bag as an investment it is now for sale, less than the current listed price in Saks. If anyone is seriously interested you can send me a message.
