In an effort to put a potential buyer's mind at ease, I went through my eluxury order history to try and find the record for my Mini Looping. I thought I had purchased the bag in 2002 but after reviewing my order history I think this might have been my Christmas gift from DH in 2000. The bag looks nowhere NEAR 6 years old since I pretty much put it away after a year of use, so I think I underestimated it's age. I have no idea how to read the date code Can you guys tell me when this bag was produced? The only reason I know it's an older bag now is because I purchased my Juliette AFTER ths looping and the order on the Juliette is Feb 12 of 01 (Valentine's Day ) Does anyone know if elux keeps records that go further than 5 years?
