1. if you bought a bag and stored it, just as they present it to you in the store - stuffed, in the sleeper, in the box, etc. and kept it that way for... let's say 4 years. what would happen to the leather? to the bag? 2. do you think bags ever ever stay in a boutique like that (packaged) for that long? 3. some eBay sellers say that they bought the bag 2-3 years ago, it's nib, been in the closet, untouched. would that be less desireable than "gently worn" (i am not considering an eBay purchase, but just thought of this example in connection with my original question above)?
