OLD!!!! OMG!!!! I am so in love with my "old" barenia 32 hac. NOW, I see what DQ, GF and others were talking about when they gave me advice about how to blend in an oil based stain on my new picotin. It did eventually blend quite well, but took about a month Scratches do not really rub out of it like I expected. Now my "secondhand" barenia baby....well, she is AMAZING!!!! Listen to this: Yesterday, as I was getting into my car, I spilled a few drops of coffee on the front of my bag. I FREAKED!!!! I dabbed a little water and rubbed. I waited a minute, and it started to look better. Then...are you ready...the girl at the car wash who didn't speak English came up and tried to rub the bag with an abrasive wet thing!!!! Again, I freaked! As I gently removed the offending object from my presence, I continued to RUB!!! It got better over the next half hour, but I could still see an outline. I rubbed when ever I could. Today...it's ALL GONE!!!!! (Yes, I rubbed one out...) OMG!!! What a great invention!!! Hermes should patent this leather! Anyone else care to weigh in??
