Better known for their bucket bags, Mansur Gavriel is a "New York City based design lavel founded by Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel in April of 2012". They make totes and bags with exceptional leather and very clean lines. A friend of mine had been on email notifications for a while this fall as she wanted to score a bucket bag; eventually, she did.
So off to the Mansur Gavriel website we went, and fawned over the bags shown online. Not a one in stock. We signed up for email notifications and thought we'd have to wait a while to get one.
No sooner than we were back, did the email arrive - online store to be restocked on December 9th! I made a note on my calendar and waited until today.
So early this morning, the texting started (I'm conversing in blue):

Around 2:10pm EST, while my sister-in-law was on a plane, I hit refresh for the hundredth time and there they were! All the bags, all in stock. I quickly put 2 totes in my shopping cart and checked out. Are you curious as to what caused complete a disruption in my day? This. Plain and simple. The last one is the one I purchased for myself. Great shape, beautiful leather (Lisa and I saw and held one of their bucket bags in Steven Alan in Boston, and my friend's bucket bag is gorgeous), and a price around $400 - not breaking the bank.
