I always end up buying my pieces brand new or as close to new as I can find, but lately I just love the idea of an older used piece. For those who have taken the older piece plunge: How did you feel your first older piece? Did you buy more older pieces afterwards or went back to new? How used is too used for you? Do you prefer a clean vachetta or do you like the character of a stained piece? A used Alma is calling me... should I answer the call?
