I'll take my ridiculous award after this post.....

This year I was given my first holiday gift from a client/company that I work with throughout the year.  Not only did I get a gift, but it was a $75 gift card to Nordstrom!  I was soooo excited.  I had my eye on some boots and thought I would go back and get them, but sadly they didn't have any in stock when I went back in to get them.

While I was browsing through the rest of the store I saw a wallet that I have always adored.  It was on sale for $73....a steep price for me to pay for a wallet.  I have adored this wallet for some time, but it is very hard for me to spend money on wallets or purses.  I'm not sure why, I just haven't ever been comfortable dropping a lot of cash on these items.  I realized though that the wallet was on sale and that I had a gift card to cover it so I would treat myself to something I would never buy otherwise.  Last Thursday I went home the happy owner of a new Hobo wallet.

On Friday I went to Joann's and when I pulled the wallet out of my purse I gasped so audibly I shocked the cashier.

Yep, pen all over the wallet.  I felt so silly for being so upset.  I was upset though.  I felt like I should never own things nice because this is what happens.  Then I hit the internet trying to figure out how to remove pen from leather.  Over the weekend I tried a couple things and only ended up making the situation worse.  On Sunday I called Nordstrom to see if they had ideas on how I could remove the pen marks.  The woman had a great idea....just bring it back and she would return it.

Say what?!

Now, I trained customer service for MANY years and we talked of the Nordstrom return policy but this was my first hands on experience of this.  I mean I WAS TO BLAME!  I had the click top pen in my purse! No worries I as assured, just bring it in and she would take it back.

I decided to play it safe and went with black, so much more forgiving!

I'm now a Nordstrom shopper for life!
