I saw a bag on eBay I'd like to bid on, but it has a 1 1/4 inch tear/cut on the back. If it were the only bag I was going to have in this style, I would only buy it new and perfect, but I have this same bag in the color I REALLY love -- I just wanted to also get it in a brown as well. If I can get the bag really cheap (it's usually $168), do you think I should buy it? Is there anything you can do for torn leather to be sure it doesn't tear further? Thanks!
