Apologies for spamming this thread but I just want to share this:

Because travel Plumes don't get a raincoat, I made a flimsy one from two transparent plastic bags.
I know Volynka is waterproof, but because I don't fill my bag to full capacity, it has gotten a valley (I don't know what else to call it) between the two handles. So the last time I carried it while raining, rainwater collected on the valley and formed a small puddle. The water then seeped through the zipper and slightly damaged the Swift lining. It's all okay now. The Swift lining just got a tiny bit discolored around the zipper when it dried.
So to avoid that I made a raincoat. lol
Hi, Wilmi,I think that the bag looks fine... I am not sure that Babadebi needs the "blind stamp" ... I have bought several bags in Japan and I have found the products as described... you are in the States? A product from Japan on ebay for Europe needs to add ca 30% import tax... if I remember corectly... if the product is advertised on collectors square based in Europe, it has the import tax already included for european customers... plus I found that in Asia used products are less desireable than in Europe, thats why I thought the bags where less expensive in Japan... you should try and buy in Japan otherwise you pay tax twice, right? Good luck! The plume is a great bag!
Hi, frenchgirl,One of my favorite H bags is my mini Plume in bleu electrique. Here is a picture from last year of a planned outfit for a wedding weekend, a mini symphony in blue! That CU shawl is so marvelous with the little Plume! While it is my smallest bag save an Evie TPM, it holds plenty for any evening occasion. I use it a lot.

Thanks for your additional thoughts. Your photos really helped, too. It's so hard to shop these bags sight-unseen, from only photos. Maybe it is just some photo flash element. I sent my question to Docride to see if she has any thoughts about condition. Will give her time to respond and go from there.Thank you for kind words... I agree that that the corners in the pics do look a little shiny... it might just be the "flash" I was looking for my red plume pictures ... could not find them ... found that I did spend a lot of (fun) time here... the corners on my VN looked shiny in the pics too.. but they were not touched up...
Good luck, have fun!
