  1. My first (and probably only -hhaaaa till now!) vintage 40 cm Birkin in marron.

    She aged in dignity, nevertheless the leather is quite dry, but after a treatment with Burgol she started shining again - have to repeat that a few times, especially on the side(s).

    I am constantly carrying her around and starring at her :smile:

  14. Hi, I couldn't quote all of you , so I am going to write my answers without quotations:

    I was told, that this was courchevel, the bag is C (1999). I applied Burgol by myself, yes, but had a talk to a leather expert before.
    It worked out quite fine but I had a few "eeeks" moments applying Burgol- first it gets sticky, but that is only a few minutes, than it does miracles.

    Living in Europe we do not have access to the products recommended here, so I had to work with available products!

    Thank you for your nice words and compliments! I am soooo proud of her!
