After a year of debating and lusting over a mono speedy, I finally made my way to the LV store today. I changed my mind last minute and got the DAMIER speedy 30. OMG, I am in LOVE!!! I used to not like the damier print but now I love it!!! I can't stop smelling the inside and admiring the beautiful red interior! Anyhow, my question for you speedy owners is: I asked for a new bag and my SA said ok. He boxed it up and when I got home, I took it out and noticed that the lock and key were already on the bag. The lock felt sticky..like gross tools that have been sitting in the garage. The upside down portion of the lock isn't shiny. Maybe I'm being too picky??
