Yesterday, after noticing that the leather looked a bit cracked and dry, I invested 15 minutes of maintenance into my purse (Grandma style). A good clean out and vacuum, some leather conditioner and a buff was all it took to make it look new again (see above).
I'm confident that my purse will serve me well for many years to come. Besides, who can argue with the math?
$150.00 divided by 10 years of service = $15.00/year
A wise investment, indeed :)
