I can never pass up a Coach purse at the GW outlet -- remember when i had paid well over $100 to $300 before the outlets in the 1980s -- now i find them for the cost of their weight -- usually under a $1.00 and when they are made in the USA -- that is a double boogie

    thanks tony for the loves

    i know sean -- i have one in black that i purchased new in the 80s and it is still my favorite evening bag -- they just never wear out -- had to take this one to a deeper color as the previous owner was a little slob with the ink pens and spills -- but expresso brown works for me

    you use wood stain on leather? tell me this secret! I re-stained a vinyl chair, but using a special leather dye kit.

    yes hunter -- those items are much cheaper than paying the $35 for leather dye plus the haz mat shipping cost and they work much better -- just dig to the b0ttom of the can on the stain -- that is where all the good nectar is -- dob it on and then using the liquid of the stain -- start moving it around -- usually start with the tube first and do a light coloring -- but it needs a sheen -- so then i jump to the wood stain -- did the whole goodwill couch that way -- it is posted on cw also
