I have a big reveal ladies...like, a pinch me moment!!! But....it happened to be a behind the scenes tradeoff! Carrie and I were messaging each other about something when I mentioned downsizing and that I was going to put my MA hobo on the chopping block...she asked if I'd want to do a trade...so I said, well, you probably wouldn't get rid of any of your MAB's so what bags were you thinking of trading? And she said how about the GE MAB?? :nuts: :eek: I thought maybe she was kidding but she said she was serious....so the decision was made and the very next day we mailed out each others bags...we both received our bags today as well! I was going to post this after work but we had company come over but now I can finally show you!!! Not that you haven't seen this before but here is my HG....GE MAB!!!! :happydance::yahoo::hbeat::girlsigh::loveeyes:

So I have been working on this new OS MAB. Here are pictures from the listing

And here after restoring color and handles

These pictures make it look more red than it is, but I can't photograph the color correctly.
Whoah!!! You did an amazing job of cleaning those handles...they look brand new! What did you use on them to get the color back to it's original glory??

So I used "magic sponges" from Lovin My Bags. And water. These sponges are slightly abrasive and I only use them on handles. Then the handles were kind of a light orange color, so I had to mix some colors of tarrago shoe cream, applied that, buffed really well (this is important!) and that was that!
