So, I looovvve the color of my marron 04 twiggy. And the leather is incomparble to anything, like silk. I know, cause I've owned two other cities and a first and the leather is not the same. The problem? The back of the bag has been burned and repaired. The leather irritates me beyond belief. See pic. So, I have purchased a first for $850. It's a great little bag, with really nice leather, but it's not my twiggy. Options: 1) Keep the first even though it's a little small and the leather is not like my twiggy. 2) Keep the twiggy, keep trying to live with the repairs, even though the whole back of the bag drives me nuts. 3) Keep 'em both and deconstruct the perfectly wonderful first to repair the twiggy. Hell, it's not like like I could sell the twiggy for that much anyway. I paid $675, but I think Bal prices are dropping for used items. This is kind of what I want to do. An insane and expensive solution huh? And I would need reccs to find a shop that could do it properly. Advice?
