A friend of mine showed me her LV that she purchased 3 years ago in May. She used it one time and it has literally sat in her drawer for 3 years. It has NOT oxidized the slightest bit! Looks like she purchased it yesterday. Now that I'm home, I wish I had looked more closely, but I know she buys authentic bags, so I can only assume this one was.... Can that happen? A bag stuck in a drawer stays as new as the day it was bought?
