We've always kinda wondered, but a reader just confirmed it for us: there's a secret, sorta posh backroom behind the BevCenter Loehmann's backroom section. A reader shared this story: "Not only did they have 4 or 5 Chanel bags (with prices around $2,500-$3,000), they also had a black Birkin bag! It was surreal to see it with a $14,999 Loehmann's price tag on it. Crazy. It was a very small room, but filled with super high end accessories. I've shopped there for over 10 years and had no idea it even existed. It's like an LA shopping urban legend - but true." [Racked Inbox]
