hey @All
i took my Gabrielle Bag out today but unfortunately i hit it against some hard material...so it left a little scratch. Tried to fix it with rubbing and polishing but i didn't help...well since the bag has a vintage look i am ok with it, but it still pisses me off...
What would you do?
The spot where the scratch is located is almost on the bottom of the bag...you only notice it if you look closely

I need help too!!! I accidentally stuck a sticker on my classic lambskin double flap and the colour came off with the sticker!!!! I'm so horrified when i see the colour could just came off like this!!! mine is a second hand vintage so I'm worried maybe because the bag is old so the colour could easily came off. What should i do?!

A little black polish would make it look much better, just buff it out thoroughly. Or if you have a nice SA, perhaps ask if Chanel can help touch up foc

send a picture to leather surgeons and ask if they can fix it?

When I get a scratch one one of my Chanel bags, and it happens more often than I like, I take a little tiny dab of Cadillac leather conditioner on an old sock or soft microfiber cloth and with firm pressure rub the scratch until it blends in with the rest of the leather. 90% of the time this makes it disappear. Just a little touch of the conditioner and a good amount of rubbing usually does the trick. Any good quality leather conditioner would work, I just happen to keep the Cadillac brand on hand.

Thank you so much for your answers.
One person also says that i could use a permanent marker pen?
No permanent marker! If you have a local place that repairs shoes, they remove scuffs and scratches from leather all the time. They would probably know exactly what to do.

I get what you mean...but i got the hint with the marker from a friend of mine who used to work at a chanel boutique.
And on the other hand i have to drive 1 hour per car to get to my nearest boutique.
Maybe i will contact our local shoe repair to get a second look and opinion
