I bought a mono speedy 30 earlier this week. I stuffed it with a bunch of cotton turtlenecks to get the creases out. I read up on patina in the patina thread. (I love the patina on the bags so it looks like you've always had it.) Since I brought it home it's been overcast or raining. I can't put it in the sun - no sun. I can't take it in the rain - water spots. Here's the big sigh.....I just checked the 10-day forecast we are going to have showers through the weekend and we aren't supposed to have any real sun until Tuesday! OH well - the creases will be completely gone by then I guess!
