I just received my first Fendi and OMG am I smitten. :love: I believe it was quite possibly the last in stock as the website said Last one available and since ordering it mid August it has been removed from the website completely.

It doesn’t look used but looks like it‘s possibly been handled a lot. Does this scratching look normal for what should hopefully be mild handling in a boutique? I baby my bags and I am unfamiliar with Fendi. Would the snap closure look like this after I used it gently?

thanks Otherwise I love the bag. 1E1230E4-7C71-47C5-B94B-A164707E270B.jpeg 94689CA4-B15C-4C28-9A48-9E83948D60A0.jpeg 7F20FB7F-9E13-4561-A8E0-6DB21D039D3D.jpeg

Try using a jewelry polishing cloth on the hardware. It will help with any fine line scratches. I don't think the hardware looks too bad.

Your Baguette looks lovely! I’m considering buying one in the same kind of leather. Would you mind sharing how the leather is holding up so far? Thank you!

I just bought the baguette in black leather and also commented on the hardware. The SA showed me that they’re all a slightly ‘worn’ finish. They do look gently marked. Even the hardware on the sides was the same.
Thanks @Cookie18 am really lusting over black nappa baguette but scared as it might be too soft and wont wear well ..
