Got my very first, new to me Balenciaga today.. Bleu Obscur Velo with Gold Giant 12 hardware. I think i got it for a steal too... $500CAD...

She has minor wear on the two corners, moisturized it and she is looking much much better- no whiteness/rubbed leather look on the corners either! No odour, no fading- she was well loved before me!

Love everything about it, am so glad added her to my bag collection

very nice
wonder if some of us here in the US should start looking at Canadian Ebay (if that's where you got it)

I am using what my husband uses for his car.. it has vitamin e and aloe and helps prevent fading etc. Liked it but am looking into getting leather honey too. And Thank You! Am so happy with her

I said that because I think @Monz1987 is also Canadian and has some beautiful bags. But I have no idea how it would work with the currency, customs, etc.
Congrats on getting a great deal on a beautiful bag
