I recently purchased an early 90’s Station bag on ebay and decided to give it a bath and condition it after reading up on purseforum.com restorations. It soaked for about an hour in dawn dish soap and then I let it dry for 48 hours (after stuffing it with paper towels). I then used apple’s leather conditioner on it after it was mostly dry. Unfortunately, it still seems a little dry – especially on the corners – but nothing extreme. I was hoping it would be softer! Any tips for conditioning it further?

I’m a Nurse Practitioner/College Professor by Profession…Vintage Leatherware Restorer by Passion!!! I was born and raised in the southern US…this contributed to my love of quality craftsmanship, my care and honor of all things that may be passed down to the next generation, and my pride in hard work! These qualities have led me far in life and have certainly contributed to my love of Vintage Coach. I’ve been collecting and restoring fine vintage leatherware since the 80’s. It’s my goal to preserve these beauties for the next generation and beyond!!!
