i received my first bay for xmas and i love her -- never thought i would! it's a beautiful dark navy just like this one: the leather is SOO soft i assumed it was lambskin but bluefly (where i got the above picture) describes it as calfskin. anyway, my question is, she's got a couple scratches (looks like fingernail) -- what's the best way to get rid of them or at least make them less pronounced? for those who own this bag, do you treat it with anything? and finally,i noticed that the front and back pockets have these brass studs in the gusset -- what are they for? thank you!
