Thanks to a wonderful tPFer on eBay (thank you, Odd!), I now am the proud owner of a brand new petrol spy! It's very bubbly--now I know what you all mean by bubbles and how they make the bags look so rich. I'm really going to enjoy carrying this one. Some day, some day I keep saying, I'm going to enter the modern age and get a digital camera and post pictures of my collection...sorry I can't yet!
