Well as some of you know that i've been desperately searching for a good pre-loved alma:Push:...and i found this one on the auction, i'm not really sure how i feel about the patina on the handle, how do u think of this guys? the price she offered me is ard USD760 which is quite reasonable for mc alma bag? do u think i should take this or should i wait for the best to come? anyone having pics of the patina handle on mc white alma? It's really hard to decide whether i should let this go or go for it, dilemma again..TIA guys!!!:yahoo:

Hello there! I could understand your dillemma.... Aside from the handle, is it in excellent condition? I got mine for only $580.00, which I think is a steal. I'll buy it for $760.00 is it's in excellent condition, but it's up to you... Sorry, I guess I'm not much of a help:girlsigh: :heart:...

Yes, the handle of mine is in even patina and no scratches or discoloration. I was even admiring it last night so I took my Appleguard leather conditioner to condition the leather trimmings. She looks much better. I suggest that you watch it on eBay everyday and when you find one, let us know and we'll help each other with our suggestions :smile::heart:

unfortunately it's not an option:crybaby:....I don't have paypal so i can only access the yahoo auction and ebay singapore sites which are quite limited, so i have to be reallyyyy patient if i want to wait for a good condition bag, this is the best offer and the best condition i've come so far...there's a better condition that i've found, but no date code that's why i decided not to buy...i feel happy for u though, u really found a nice one!!:yes:

I would wait. I am not picky about the patina but it looks dirty to me and even though they can be cleaned most of the time they get dried out. If you are not sure if you are going to be totally happy with it let it go.

I think the handles look dirty. However, apparently baby wipes will take care of all that surface dirt no problem. Just make sure you have a good leather conditioner on hand as the baby wipes tend to dry out the leather a little.
If you love it and the bags don't come around often on your sites.. then get it! I might ask her if she would accept a lower offer first though, you never know!!

Best of luck!!!

Here's mine ~ I've owned it since they first came out and only used it a handful of times ... hopes this helps:flowers:

P.S. My handles are a lot lighter than the pics you posted though.

fsadeli : im not sure what is it on the handles..is it dirt? water stain?
it looks more like dirt- you may want to check out how to clean it before buying
760 is good price for that condition though.
