Okay, so last week or so I posted that I've received my Damier Sarria that I bought from a fellow tPFer and that it was in great condition considering the price I paid for it, but there was a little bit of wrinkled leather (inevitable, I understand), a tiny tiny white mark on the chocolate leather, plus a 1cm smudge mark (probably a scratch too) and a 4 cm long white scratch on the canvas. At first I thought I can ignore the scratches...but today I brought the bag out for the second time in two weeks and I realized that the only thing preventing me from taking this bag out more often is my obsession with the scratches. Every time I see them I get so sad... The small one doesn't bug me, but the large one is quite visible under natural lighting, especially when the bag is viewed straight. It's just a surface scratch, so I think some of the color on the canvas pattern simply came off...so while I was in the car with my boyfriend, and while I was obsessing over the scratch (again), I thought, why don't I just add some color so the scratch isn't visible any more? I experimented with a VERY fine blue point pen and dotted one part of the white scratch and it looked better! I could tell it was blue, but the scratch looked smaller instantly (it wasn't a continuous scratch...it was more like a few white dots...formed by something that scratched across the canvas). When I got to work, I used--a SHARPIE. Black, permanent, and water-resistant sharpie. I knew one little slip and my bag would be ruined, so I took the bag and the sharpie to a very sturdy/stable table in the restaurant under direct sunlight and started dotting the white parts ever so gently and carefully. Luckily, most of the white dots were sitting on top of the black parts of the Damier canvas...and the sharpie did a GREAT job of giving the white spots its black color back! I over did a very small portion and you can tell (if you look VERY carefully) that there's a larger black mark than usual, but it's not even noticeable! I showed my boyfriend and he thought it looked GREAT! I wish I took before and after pics...I'm so happy right now that it's fixed. I tried fixing the smudge-looking scratch but since whatever scratched it actually took out a little of the canvas it didn't work as well. It still looks good though! Just wanted to share with you guys...aren't I ADVENTUROUS! One little slip and it'd be worse than before...many of you are probably tsk tsk-ing me My coworker saw me and asked, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR VUITTON?!". Oh well!
