I thought this would be a fun thread on any secrets, habits, confessions, etc. . you may have about your BV. I'll go first! 1) I know this is probably crazy, but I haven't yet traveled with my BV's. Probably an unnecessary paranoia of damaging the leather. I'm going on a trip later this year, and I finally plan on taking something! 2) When I get a new BV item, I like to "pet" the leather because it is so soft and supple. That's definetely gotten me a few crazy looks from my fiancee. . 3) I keep everything stuffed with paper and in their dustbags at all times if I'm not using them. Sometimes, I use cotton balls to help keep the corners of the bags from crinkling if the paper can't get through. 4) My friends and family know I love bags, but I've barely told anyone about BV since I'm afraid they'll be like at the price. My excuse(which is true!) is that these are bags I can use forever. . . Of course, I use that line with every bag!
