I purchased a white Botkier stirrup stud hobo from eBay seller konasesame. The auction stated it was new with tags, but the bag arrived with light pink stains, scuffed piping and spots of dirt. After communicating with the seller and doing calculations on the amount of money I'd lose if I sent the bag back for a refund (which she offered), I decided to keep it despite its flaws because I really do like it and it doesn't make sense for me to spend 20% of the bag's purchase price on shipping it back (I live in Singapore). But I can't help but be disgruntled at the poor quality of the stitching. Somehow it doesn't look robust, as it does on bags from other brands like Coach, for instance. I've read about Botkier's quality issues and just hope that my bag will last me at least a couple of years before biting the dust, and that those pink stains come out when I take the bag to a trusted bag cleaning specialist. But it'll be a forever and a day before I buy from konasesame again.
