HI ladies, Well, I got two new bags in the mail today, a '06 lilac first and a '06 black first!!! I got a good price for both, so it was basically a done deal, but after examining the lilac first, I did notice something strange with the shoulder handle. The shoulder pad(?) is two completely different finishes. Half of it is light and smooth and the other half is veiny, cracked and much darker. I am going to post pictures so you guys can see. This area is on the underside of the strap, so if I wear it, you won't be able to see it, but it is obviously there and I know it's there... I don't know, should I keep it?? The seller told me even before she mailed it out that if for some reason I am not happy, she will gladly take it back, so I have no problem there, just don't know if I should keep it or not. Here are the pictures..
