My last post was a year ago and I'm going to jump back in where I left off: with my Louis Vuitton drawstring bag. I decided that if I were going to start using it again it needed to be professionally refurbished so I took it to ArtBag in NYC to replace the vachetta leather trim and drawstring that were basically falling apart. They did a pretty good job.

I also had Artbag replace the zipper on my Louis Vuitton wallet. Technically I think LV calls this style an "organizer," but it's a wallet. I've been carrying this wallet around for about ten years. It fits everything--and I definitely overstuffed it--which is probably why the zipper was malfunctioning.

Thanks to Artbag my LVs are back in business!
