Okay, so I know most of us are willing to drop hundreds, thousands on handbags we absolutely adore...and love to carry! but i have had some close calls, and this weekend i was out with my vert d'eau bbag and the exhaust pipes from the buses to the slight drizzle to the kids running around with ice cream cones had me nearly convinced i wouldn't leave without some terrible stain on my bag. fortunately it was fine in the end, but i have had friends who have brought bags to bars and malls and had grenadine, soda, ice cream, etc spilled on their bags. i was at an event a couple of months ago and left my bag on a table, and someone spilled an entire cup of coffee! thankfully it was a longchamp nylon and it came out. so has that happened to any of you yet? and, if a stranger or a friend were to accidentally spill something on your bag and destroy it - would you just chalk it up to money lost? that is probably one of my fears- saving up for a bag i really love and having it be destroyed in a matter of seconds by clumsiness (my own or someone else's). i personally could never ask someone to pay for the damage, even partially - its my own decision to spend so much on a bag in the first place.
