I was talking about that in another forum I go to, I would love that silver money bag, but guess it is out of my reach, a its an asian release only, and prices will probably be insane on ebay. :/

But if someone knows a place selling them online for the original price, PLEASE pm me, as I really want one (I collect pandora as well, have 2 bracelets, pandora bracelets, not troll, that are a working in progress, for pandora only beads)

I would love the gold money bag, but I could probably only afford silver! Guess it is a moot point if they are only in Asian markets anyway.

The dragon design is very nice, but the pandora silvers are just too shiney for me, that always puts me off even when the design itself is nice.

A few of the dragons just showed up on the bay - vastly overpriced, unfortunately. A friend of mine checked in Peking but those dragons seem to be very elusive, none were to be found. The ones on the bay seem to be from singapore. I also found a retailer there, but no luck with shipping outside Singapore. LOL - I am not even into ´dora, but dragons... well, what can I say - I mean, we are talking dragons... Wink

My DH was about to bring one or two home for me but found them to be little interesting. The dragon is rather flat so DH though, knowing my Trollbeads collection a bit Wink, these were likely not what I would've wanted to pay that much for.

But as DH will be going back to Hong Kong he can bring back a few charms. Wow, I never thought I might be fairying Pandora... Laughing

I will be passing through HK airport in a couple or weeks (and have already located the Pandora store in the airport from a previous trip) so I can trollfairy for anyone that wants.

I'm passingn through HK airport on April 13th and then back again on the 20th so I will try and pick up whatever people want. I'm heading to Manila and while I know there is a Pandora store somewhere in Makati I havent yet found it (I will search for it!) and am not sure whether Manila will have them or not but worth a try

Am pinning my hopes on the airport!

Also does anyone know how much these are meant to cost? Don't want to buy things that people then don't want once they hear the price (I have no idea what they are meant to be retailing for)

Thank you so much for the offer, Reive, and I completely understand! I would not wish to do that either!

At Charms Addict (what a name Wink ) it says that the money bag retails for 48,- USD and I remember having seen the dragon price there, as well, but can not find it anymore. It was at around 69,- USD for the silver dragon and a bit over 100,- USD for the two-tone one, but I can not remember for the live of me... For this price I would love to have one of each. But if they are more, I would need to reconsider (even for a dragon Wink ).

Maybe Smaug´s DH might remember the prices?

Or maybe you could just have a look and let us know the price when you come back and we wait for the next one to fly out there Smile I started the small list really just as a wish list to see who might be interested. This is one very elusive dragon and there is absolutely no rush.

Ok if the price is around that mark and I can get them for you I will pick up on the way through, if the price is wildly different I will post the prices once I get to Manila and then can pick up on my way back through a week later.

Just a shame there's nowhere to buy Trollbeads in the airport, one of these days I am going to have to venture further into HK!

I've got money bag, love this charm. I love the dragon dangle too, but I try to stay away from dangles for now.
