Some awesome vintage Dehner Boots sent in by @Takai 

 

These things were so crusty. After I washed them up, I decided I wanted to try and preserve the amazing patina instead of bring them back to black.

@SpooPoker sent in this humongous Malo bag for a cleanup. I'd call it a weekend bag, but I could probably pack for a week in it. Some unusual challenges with this project. The bag looks like it was in the bottom of someones closet and trampled on or crushed. The flap had taken on a seemingly incorrigible form and needed to be pressed for a week, and will rely on diligent storage moving forward. The bag also has roughly 8 oz of sterling silver hardware, that was looking pretty rough. It had originally been coated with a plastic film to keep it shiny longer, but large pieces of the film had been worn off and it had a bad look. Most of the hardware was removable, so it was all removed. even the screws are sterling silver.

Great job and +1 on the second statement: don't let perfect get in the way of better.
