Europe. Central.
Today I welcomed Ms Kelly and Ms Evelyne back from their trip to the spa in Paris.
They're beautiful! Ms Evelyne's leather (Clemence or Vachette Ardenne... I can't really tell....) had had a dry feel to it and now it's fresh again.
Ms Kelly (box) feels like silk now. The leather feels and looks nurtured. She was showing some signs of ageing on the underside of the handles - all gone now.
It was expensive - cost me 150 Euros PER BAG but was totally worth it. They came back pristine in sleepers (the orange 'old' ones) and Ms Kelly had the plastic balloons inside.
The only thing that I could kick myself about is that I had some friends pick them up in Vienna, as I could have had them mailed to me and would have had two beautiful orange boxes with them :nuts: .
I'll take pics tomorrow. I am so glad they're home for the holidays :love: .

Holy Moly! Glad the ladies made it home safe and sound!

Seriously?! If I send my girl to NY for a spa treatment, she'll come back in an orange box?! That's it - she's heading to the big city...

Ms Twilly, I think it's only if the girls are going to Paris (where mine had been as there is no Hermes spa in Austria).
Plus I had agreed initially that the shop would ship them to me (would have cost the same) and I would *assume* that they would ship in an orange box. But then friends of mine were in Vienna and picked them up for me.
I'd much prefer having them serviced somewhere near me.
