    Default vintage gucci blondie bag

    I recently acquired a 70s navy blue leather gucci gold medallion blondie shoulder bag. I'd like to know how to restore it to its former glory. It has creases and it lost its sheen. Thank you.

    You probably need to take it to a professional. There are leather treatments they can do to restore it.

    Is there a Gucci near you? I would contact them and see what they recommend. Good luck!

    I called Gucci Makati this morning and they refused to accept the bag for repair. They suggested bringing it to Hongkong..BUT they are not sure if Gucci Hongkong would be able to help me..sigh...
    I've searched in the internet for Gucci customer service and all I found were complaints on Gucci products and Gucci post sales service.

    My mother gave me her Black Blondie bag about a month ago. Believe or not, she got at a local Goodwill a few years ago for $2.50! It's from the 70s I think, with the big gold medallion. I don't use it--not really into these bags. It's in pretty good shape except for the inside zipper which was fixed at some point and it doesn't zip all the way open. Anyway, it's just sitting in my closet. Not sure what to do with it.....
