Here is my latest rehab project, a black City Bag 9790 that was made in Turkey in 1996 and kindly authenticated by Hyacinth. (I was surprised to discover that Coach had made bags in Turkey at one time!) I bought the bag at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for $20. That's more than I usually care to spend on a rehab project but it is such a lovely, classic bag and I could see that it was in very good shape, just scuffed and dirty. I gave her a much-needed bath and conditioning, polished the hardware, and touched up the edging on the strap with permanent, acryllic black fabric paint. It didn't take much work and now she looks all pretty again! Here are some before pics; I will post the after pics with the next message.
