Bina, they REALLY last lol. They will go on for alot longer than a couple of years with just a tiny bit of thought, spraying sporadically etc...... and they get better and better with use too ;)

Hope that helps ease the way !!! :biggrin:

The printed leather is really thick and robust - these will last for years and years- no need to worry- now go get one- I adore PVT!!! I recently bought a second hand oak printed oak patty bag- it is like new and it at least 5 years old

They last so long, that I am worried what my greatgranddaughters will do with the Bayswaters when (around age 95)they have to go to live in a nursing home...

...and if you bury Emma H in a tomb and put Bays and Alexas with her,
2000 years later scientists will discover a bandaged mummy ,which would break into dust at touch, Alexa hardware in a little pile of ash, and 3 brand new vintage Bays.

...and a Roxanne you could give to Lenin in Moscow mausoleum, they will lie together, forever, sprayed generously by collonil, the only difference will be that Lenin will reguire regular further maintenance.

...just return (they do allow returns), then a minute later take it again to the till. Simple. If they disagree, return and go away. Half an hour later, buy it.
It is better not to ask - it tempts them to say no.
