Has anyone ever had a bag "altered"??

  1. I have recently purchased, what I lovingly refer to as, my hippie bag...the XL brown suede poppy tote....and it has no closure. I was wondering if anyone has ever had a bag "altered"? I'm thinking of trying to find a place that could maybe put a magnetic closure in it or a zipper? Anyone ever had any luck doing this sort of thing? Or do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!
  2. I altered my signature duffle (like a bleeker duffle but a few years older) I put a long cross body strap on it. Maybe if you take it to someone who works with leather like a seamstress or a cobbler then they could do this for you. If so, make sure you get a good quality zipper like RiRi,Lampo or ykk
