The owner posted her on FB. I spotted it and called her. She said someone was on the way to look at it, but she would call me if the person didn't buy it. I called an hour later. The person hadn't shown. Of course I was at work and wouldn't be able to go until the end of the day. So I bought it over the phone based on the few pics I saw on FB. She informed me of the flaws plus I had seen them on FB. I wasn't worried about authenticity because she is reputable and I have bought and sold through her. I can't believe how abused this poor bag was. I spent the whole evening scrubbing her inside and out. I will use her for awhile and decide if I will keep her or not. I bought her to use in inclement weather or when I don't want to use my good bags. I only posted one pic because Photobucket is acting up.
