... because Spring is a long time coming.

In the meantime, I have finally found the blue that cheers me right up. After a fiasco of a purchase on the 'bay, and the sending of this beauty to BV for repair, and just receiving it back yesterday - I am so pleased. They gave the bag a complimentary spa, too, so she's just like new and man, does she feel good. Wish I knew what products they used...

Presenting the China (blue) Cervo Hobo from the F/W 2010 season - lovely purple suede lining - with my Oceano card case and my Nero Wallet ... and a stray Daffodil or two ...

... Sorry I was not following your thread previously; I guess it has something to do with the lining?

The magnet closure was broken (in that one magnet had moved to the other side of the bag.) It was repaired for free, but only because I mentioned strongly that it was an issue that should not have happened, and BV is strongly customer-service oriented, so they did not argue.

I've seen this particular issue in three Cervo Hobos I've owned in the past; this was the third that came to me 'damaged', so I'm guessing it's an issue that nobody talks about - .

Otherwise, I believe the magnet repair is $65.00 normally (as of 2/2014).

Very blue-tiful India. I have been on the prowl for a new BV having received a lovely work bonus from my awesome boss. I used to wear a lot of blue when I lived in my hometown Boston. After seeing your bag and Grietje's, I may ditch my nero / gray quest and head for the blue and happy skies.
