went to the shoe repair shop today to drop off some boots. saw the meltonian stuff but meltonian is a brand (i thought it was the product) and there was some mink oil by them and then some other stuff, saddle soap-type stuff. which is it that people use on their hermes? the guy working there said that the mink oil made stuff too greasy and he preferred this other stuff (looked like a tiny container of car oil - that's just what it reminded me of. it was liquid-y), but he didn't know that we weren't talking about hermes...i don't care what he recommends for shoes and such. he asked if it was for my bag and i said yes and he commented that it looked like it wouldn't need anything for a few years yet, but i would feel better if i could give it a little drink once in a while (it's already 3.5 years old and been in snow and rain, but it's had 2 treatments at hermes already). any advice would be appreciated - i go back to pick up the boots on wednesday.
