I'm sure some of you buy used handbag. Do you refurbish a used handbag by replacing tarnish hardwares, fix the leather..etc? I bought this beautiful designer bag, but the little pearls that comes with the bag have a lot of scratches on them. The wires attached to the pearls are all darken. I order some Swarovski pearls (same color as the old pearls) & sterling silver wires & planning to replace all of the beads myself. Now, if I am to resell the bag, will it be an issue? I am replacing the older beads with better quality ones? The bag is definitely newer than before. Anyone refurbish an old bag? Thanks!

You're way more creative than I am. I never would have thought to "fix it up." If you're planning to resell the bag, I suggest taking before and after pictures, so you can show potential buyers that you made an improvement.
