I'm starting this thread on behalf of all of us who have taken a chance with a QVC "as is" purchase if a Dooney and wanted to share her/his experience. (Great idea StillPooh!).

So here we go. I suppose you win some and you lose some...... :smile: :sad:

I'll start things off with my as is purchase of the small florentine satchel in violet.

Can you hear me yelling to the UPS man in the background to come back? If I could put it back on the truck I would!

I open the box and what do I see at first glance? A flat pebbly bag in a plastic bag. Oh no....pebbles! Can I not get one smooth florentine bag...ever? No stuffing and no wrap anywhere. So I open the bag and at first glance she looks pretty clean. Very pebbly, but I actually like the look on this bag. She's very soft and smells like berries. Could that be the violet dye or someone's perfume. I inspect the inside and she's pretty clean except for a few sparkles and bits of something. There is no registration card and no dust bag. Then to my horror I see it.... the dreaded blue color transfer!!! Upon further inspection I see some of the gold has rubbed off of the hardware clasp. The strap has a fold/sharp bend so this person probably doubled the strap. I even see a little scuff by some of the piping. Needless to say, this bag has been test driven pretty fast and furiously and this person clearly didn't want to keep a dirty bag. Otherwise she's pretty, evenly pebbled, and very soft and supple.

I hope the rest of you fare better than I did today. There is always a bright side though. I get to save on this easy payment for 4 months. :smile:

Oh no!I'm so sorry Twoboyz. QVC needs better quality control if you ask me. I worry what my "as is" will look like tomorrow. :nogood:

Thanks, but don't worry. I've gotten two beautiful bags in as is that looked brand new with all the pieces and still partially wrapped. There's hope.... :smile: good luck.

Well... my as is small Stanwich arrived... at first I was excited to see her wrapped in plastic, and still had her handles wrapped and she was the perfect size!

Then I removed the plastic... :sad: to find extreme variations in pebbly vs smooth, heavy scratches and she's dirty :o as though she was kicked around on a concrete floor :sad:

I tried to get pics, but it's cloudy her and I just couldn't seem to get good ones of the damage

Oh another big bummer for today! I'm sorry. It does look like a little water damage on the back. The front just looks like is pebbly in that spot. It's hard to tell and I can't see any dirt. Are there stains?
