I would definitely look at Ebay listings. Handbag pricing is WAY down right now, they usually are lower during the Summer and right before X-mas. I would also take advantage of the Live.com 10-25% cash back offers. I've been seeing a lot of Chloe Paddingtons go for less than $1000 (most are $800-900) in colors such as grey, shades of browns, blue, and red.
Have you tried these on in person? If not, I highly recommend that you do. These bags are super heavy!
