Vinyl purses are not everyday purses. Vinyl purses have been coated with a spray lacquer to help with scratches. You should treat your purse as if it was an actual record! It should not be left in a hot car or by a heat source to avoid warping or melting. Freezing is not recommended. Scratches can be repaired. Large scratches will have to be covered with spray lacquer. Take care to not allow the label to get wet !
