Finished my orange mini Ergo! I bought this after my daughter (she’s only 3) stole my black one. She also tried to steel my purple Hadley, but I managed to get that one back:lol: This was a simple dunk and condition.

I’m pretty happy with it! The stains are still there, but less noticeable. She’ll borrow the hangtag from my Ergo Flap when I use her.
Beautiful color and nice job!

Ever hear the phrase "I've bitten off more than I can chew"? I did some digging in my rehab pile(s) and I think I got a little bit overly-ambitious; cause there's a whole lot of work on my table right now! Oh dear!

It looks so much better! I have thought about buying one of these. They look so cute in photos.

I love that a three old is already collecting!!! I bought a cute pink Ciao Baby pink little purse for my two year old great niece when I was in Venice Italy right before the pandemic. Then I got her a cute outfit in the same colors with a little printed crossbody bag on the little shirt. I’ll see if I can find a photo.

One of my favourite styles is the Geometric Clutch 9044. I received this one with the help of an awesome TPFer! :hugs: Sometimes I name my best-loved bags and this one is Audrey (Hepburn). :love:

She arrived with a small scratch on the back:

Which magically disappeared with the dunk and conditioning (Leather CPR, Blackrocks and lastly Renapur heated on the sponge - which will be absorbed over the next couple of days).

Thanks for looking. :flowers:

Very nice, and we are bag twins! Audrey Hepburn is the perfect name! I used Leather CPR and Blackrocks on mine but I didn't add Renapur and I think that your bag looks better, so I will have to try adding the Renapur, thanks!

So cute! My daughter would love all the pink.
She already claimed all my Casinos, too! (but she lets me keep those in my cabinet.) She says all my baby purses are hers. She tried to claim my Winnie, but I told her she can borrow it when she's older. My mom picked out a small nubuck Sonoma purse from my collection as a Mother's Day gift, but my daughter was very reluctant to let that one go! She finally let my mom take it when I let her wear my purple Hadley for a little bit:lol:

Hi all! This is rehab related, but not Coach. I'm wondering if anyone has ever rehabbed a Mansur Gavriel bag and how it turned out. I found one that has some missing hardware, which is super simple to fix, but I don't know much about the leather other than it's calf leather. The site doesn't indicate if it's full grain or not, like vintage Coaches. Anyone own one/rehabbed one?

My daughter has no interest in my bags. She's 4 now, and I've been rehabbing/collecting Coaches since she was 1. I was not a bag person at all before then (now I'm obsessed). I think these stories ya'll tell are super cute. :heart: I wonder if she'll show interest at some point? My mom is pretty happy that I like bags now. It's another thing we can gab about. :biggrin:
