I know this is so silly but I'm feeling remorse over the lovely Spring '06 black Stam I got from eBay after a very kind TPFer helped me authenticate it. I paid $761 plus shipping and insurance, which seems to not be such a bad deal. It's in excellent condition. But then I saw that a '05 black Stam with burgundy lining from England (also authenticated) went for about half that a few days later! It was in worse condition, but it also had that nice slouchy look of the earlier Stams--mine is quite structured and the gold is so shiny. Will it "mellow" with age, I wonder (and hope)? Anyone else have bag regret they care to share? I feel guilty even expressing it but I know SOMEONE here will understand.
