Hello Ladies I have not been posting much lately. But still have been looking. I was bidding on my bag on eBay and my friend told me to stop bidding she thought I was bidding too high. Thats what she told me anyways! After auction ended she said your getting your bag for Christmas!! I was ^%$&^*(!!!!!!! So 3 days go by and she has received the bag. She knows nothing about Coach etc. :biggrin: She actually liked it and was teasing me saying she might keep it and its on the floor she has her feet on it etc. I was NOOOOO!! Of Course she was only playing with me. So Friday she is like be home tomorrow. She overnighted it to me and addressed it to CryBaby! :nuts: The maillady was laughing. She said you sound like such a baby about your bag.

So when I opened the package on Sat I took a deep breath.. Yummy Leather! I notice right away she has a BAD BAD case of Verdigris. I do not wanna hurt my friends feelings I just told her do not leave the seller feedback. I even emailed the seller and asked for more pictures. I also asked if they were a member here Since most of us ladies would notice verdigris and be picky about our bags. I guess not everyone is picky! :sad: The Auction stated the bag was same condition as the day they got it. Only carried a couple of times. It took me 3 hours to clean the verdigris off of her. The bag was so dry I had to put 3 coats of apple conditioner on it so far and I am sure it could use more. Needless to say I still love her! If I had been the one paying she would have went back.

One more thing before I post her pictures... I also won my HG keyfob THE COMIC KEYFOB!!! woohoooo!!!! Waiting on that to come in the mail still.


In all her glory here she is!!

Congrats, she does look perfect, I couldn't tell there was darker leather near the brass parts. I've been looking for the Comic charm and have it set up in ebay search and it never came up recently. Lucky you, you finding one!
My whiskey Gigi doesn't get verdigris because I live in a dry climate.

Thank you! I never knew the technical name for that!
I was thinking it had something to do with the leather.
