    Default Upset... my Gryson Skye just broke!

    Remember my lovely Nylon Gryson Skye satchel that I won right here on TBF? I've only used it a handful of times, but I have been using it more lately because it fits in so nicely with the new nylon handbags trend. Anyway, I put the shoulder straps on it and I had been carrying it that way. But today, when I was getting out of the car, I grabbed the strap to pick it up and it just... broke. It was the rivet that holds the buckle to the shoulder strap to the bag that broke. But it is all jagged, like it actually broke broke and it didn't just become detached. I'm super bummed out about this and I am afraid to tell Mr BRS about it. He knows how much the bag originally retailed for. And even though I didn't pay anything for the bag, I am afraid that he won't want me buying any more bags because the "expensive" ones aren't worth the price you pay for them. He thinks they are all junk...

    What should I do?

    Here are some pictures so you can see what I'm talking about. You can see the hole where the rivet fell out.

    Oh my gosh no way That's horrible! I really don't know what you would do. Maybe contact Gryson's customer support.

    Do you know how I can find it? When I try to go to the Gryson website, it is just a blank gray screen with Gryson written in the middle. No links... no animation... no nothing.

    How about contacting Gryson's sister brand Olivia Harris? Hopefully they can help you there! They have to have some sort of repair policy.. surprised they don't have it on their site.

    Can you see anything on their website? Maybe it's my web browser or something.

    Hey BrS, don't worry. It is not a biggie. I have installed rivets myself and it is not a crazy thing to fix.
    take it to a good shoe repair or denim garmet repair place and they should be able to attach it right back.

    From your pic, it appers that the metal did not hold the stress and snapped. It is very easily fixable.
    Good luck.

    No I don't see anything either. It looks like just a splash page. .. they could be re-doing their website or something.

    ^^^ Yeah, I know. Isn't it weird? I will give the Olivia Harris e-mail a try.

    FedUp - I thought about that, but I wasn't sure who to try. The phone book lists "leather repair" but then the ads are talking about saddles... I can't call them right now though since it is outside their normal business hours.

    Oh man, I hope you can get that fixed. I agree with FedUp, look up shoe repair services.

    Under shoe repair is says "see leather repair".

    I tried the e-mail, so hopefully I'll get a response. If not, I guess I will call up some of those places advertising saddle and boot repair once the work week starts again.
