I'm thinking about finally getting a Cabat! But I'm in no rush and haven't yet decided if I want to buy one brand new from the boutique or if I want to try to find a gently used one online. So naturally I'm keeping my eyes open to new arrivals on consignment and auction sites and what I've seen so far has left me concerned about how the Cabat's leather wears over time. It seems like the edges on the handles crack and the leather gets rubbed out in many places...you can see what I mean if you look at the bags currently on Fashionphile (http://www.fashionphile.com/BOTTEGA-VENETA-Nappa-Intrecciato-Medium-Cabat-Black-21011) or eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bottega-Veneta-Soft-Black-Nappa-Leather-Extra-Large-Cabat-Tote-Bag-/120839335505?pt=US_CSA_WH_Handbags&hash=item1c2295ee51#ht_8576wt_1108). Is this normal wear and tear for the Cabat? If so, are they really worth buying brand new at full price? Lastly, BV do anything to refurbish the bags? I'd really appreciate any feedback you can give me. TIA!
