OMG! I took the plunge and now can't take it out of the dustbag. I purchased the bone riki w/ snakeskin last Weds. I was hoping it would go on sale, but nooo. Nordstroms US sold out of it completely and I panicked and purchased it at Saks, which only had one other one in the US. It's sitting in my closet. DH thinks I'm nuts, but doesn't complain. I'm afraid to use it because I don't want to "scratch" it. Agggg!!
