If your friend asked you if she could borrow your bag, would you let her? Would she have to meet certain criteria, leave a small ransom as a deposit, or are you a "what's mine is yours" kind of pal? I have only been asked once by a friend of mine who carries LV exclusively, wanted to buy the large Musette, but wanted to carry it first before making her decision. I trust her 100%. She absolutely babies her bags. I let her borrow it. But I don't know about other people. Very sticky situation!! Tell me your thoughts, please? Feel free to include horror stories!!!
