1st LV purchase...need advice

  1. Hey everyone, I just purchased my 1st LV off of eBay for $395. it is an Alma in used condtion (item#200077033556) I have not received it yet, but wanted to get some opinions on it. 1. authentic? 2. can the watermarks on the leather be fixed? 3. is it too used for the price i paid? i figure if i don't like it, i can resell it or send it to consignment. TIA for your opinions!
  2. The watermarks are there to stay, you can take a mr clean magic eraser to the handles along with some leather conditioner to take the dirt away. As the vachetta continues to patina, the watermarks *should* blend in or become less noticeable.

    Posting the link to the auction would be a good idea in the AUthenticate thread.

    Congrats on your first LV!
  3. That seems really inexpensive for a Louis Alma...definitely post the link so we can all see it.
  4. Congrats, but just FYI, it'd be better to post in authenticate thread for your concern :smile:
  5. Congrats!
