Hi, this is my first post here. I'm sure you can all help. Well, I bought a cerises cles in the end of December/early January (I have to check) from a seller recommended through Louis_Vuitton on eBay. After I got it I posted pictures on Louis_Vuitton to verify again that it is authentic since indentifying cerises isn't my best skill. Anyway, many of the members there told me not to worry that it is real. So, I've had it what almost four months now. I use it every day. So that may be the reason for whats happening ... Some of the cerises are fading/scratching off. Mostly the two in the corners on the side where the leather is sewn together. Also, the zipper is fading. But the key holder is fine. Is this normal wear and tear? I was told by someone on Louis_Vuitton to take it in and exchange it. They have heard of this happening before amongst cerises cles owners on the internet and that this shouldn't be happening. Is that the right thing to do? Plus I didn't but it directly from LV so I don't have a receipt. (The seller didn't even give me the little cerises booklet which upsets me but I didn't realize till way after. Plus I'm not even sure if cles's get a booklet?) Anyway, my point is, should I do anything about this? I don't want to have to stop using it just to save the cerises but I'm suprised they would come off so easily! Thanks!
