Since I received my Olivia (camel with chocolate trim) last week, I've received more compliments than on any other bag I own! The SA at the NM sale table was drooling over it (our store does not stock Gryson). Many people have asked me in line at the grocery store what it was. It sits on my credenza in my office and almost everyone who comes in has something to say about it. Everybody wants to squeeze it. And, as I posted in another thread, even Billy M'Caw (our parrot) approves! Have any of you other Gryson lovers had similar experiences?
