I remembered something the other day that made me want to post this here. I once knew of a woman who bought piles of handbags but also built a big glass display case in her home and pretty much locked them away in there! (Hermes Birkins and Kellys, LV cherry blossom stuff, you name it.) She only used one or two and was just content to admire the rest in this shrine form! I also know some people who, when they buy bags, need to give them some "admiration time" before they start using them. I'm the opposite. I've been known to transfer my belongings into a new bag right in the car in the mall parking lot!! I'm very careful with my bags (and lal of my things) - each gets stored in its dustbag and rests on built-in closet shelving. But I USE my bags. I have no fear of enjoying them and taking them wherever I see fit. I try to keep my bags looking as new as possible, but also don't stress too much if they develop a little wear. So, how do you treat your bags?
