http://www.polyvore.com/coach_op_art...ng?id=12355950
and my was it used! stains and rusted handles, i got the stains mostly out..white is always so quickly damaged. but the handles are awful looking...like the fabric is covered in shiny silver material that i guess peeled off but it is a cute bag and id like to use it but i was thinking maybe of getting a silver marker for fabric and trying to color it in or something, watcha think?

Good evening, all! Please forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong forum, but, I've never had a bag repaired by Vuitton (or by anyone else, period)...How does one go about in having a strap replaced, for instance? I have an older Saint Cloud GM that I'd like all the vachetta replaced, but I'm unsure which boutique near me (D.C) would take my bag in. Also, how long does a repair of this "magnitude" take (just the strap and the vachetta tab at the front of the bag closure)?

Thank you in advance!

I tried taking my mom's old speedy to get repaired (needs new zipper and hardware had weird green rusting) at both the LV store in Tyson's Corner (in the same building as Hermes) and the LV boutique in Bloomingdale's - and they both told me that they won't take/send bags to be repaired. I'm thinking of sending it to Fordham repair in NYC.

I hope I'm posting the right place. I have a Chanel Agenda and one of the rings (6-ring-Agenda) doesn't close completely. I'm looking for suggestions to where I should send it for repair. All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Send your bag to Rago Brothers in New Jersey. Dior uses them for repairs and also many other companies. Dior sent one of my vintage bags to them for repair and dyeing and they did an Excellent job! Looks like new! They are not cheap but worth every penny!

If the designer does not repair the bag and it gets repaired at just a public place would it still be classified as 100% authentic?
