She needs zipper repair. The part that connects the zipper to the pull broke. I have been using my Stella with a crappy zipper for months since I could not part with her. I have been closing the zipper without a pull, I was getting cuts on my fingers. All just because I could not let her go! I finally contacted the Mercer Street MJ store. They gave me their leather repair shop contact. I dropped my dear Stella off at the repair place on Friday afternoon. I am due to hear back from them on Monday. Hopefully this will not cost a bundle.
