I've always loved to visit the Beretta Madison Ave. store when visiting NY. About a year ago, I was passing the shop (hoping, for fiscal reasons, to have no reason to enter) when I saw, in the window, the most extraordinary crocodile and ostrich pouch/purse. Ostrich AND Crocodile-priceless!!! Knowing the usual price and value of same, I ventured in and asked salesperson, knowing my outer limits:"how much more than $1000 dollars is that purse?" It was less, and has been a treasured possession since.
