Hi all, I am sad and I just needed to share.

:sad2: Last night, I pulled out my lovely patent rose Longchamp bag to use this week and she has a tiny ink mark on the corner of the base. Yes, I know it is not noticeable when I use it because it's on the underside, and yes I know, I can never really keep them in absolute mint condition if I use them regularly (that's what DH said to console me -- it didn't really work.). But I still feel bad. It's so tiny, but my eyes zero in on it whenever I look at the underside of the bag.

I searched the forum and the net for how to clean this, I tried Mr Clean magic eraser, nail polish remover, shu uemura cleansing oil (that wasn't on the net, just thought I would give it a go) and have yet to try hairspray cause I don't have any here. Didn't work.

It was the first thing I thought of when I woke up. Not in an absolutely depressed way, just a niggling feeling of "Aw man!".

I am trying to tell myself, at least it's one of the cheaper bags I own. But you know what, I really love the bag, so that thought didn't work.

Should I just buy all black bags from now on?

Attached a thumbnail of the corner of the bag where the mark is. You can all tell me I am overreacting...

ya know what..that drives me nuts too..no matter how small the mark is..BUT, this is how I look at it...those marks are like "birthmarks" they make our bags unique..no one can ever say that is not our bag..because we have proof..it's like our own identification system

Yes, you've all made good points. I guess I just need to get over it, and will probably stop thinking about it soon. The bad part (or is it the good part) is I am now thinking 'Gosh I feel bad and maybe to make myself feel better, I should buy another handbag..' :P And I definitely shouldn't do that!

Thanks to all.
