We all know that things can be pretty negative in this forum, as many of us struggle with sellers and buyers that try to rip people off and cheat them out of their money and quality/authentic items. I thought I'd share my happy story to lighten the mood a bit. As you may or may not know, I love Marc Jacobs. I've been wanting a collection bag for a long time, but was happy with my MbMJ bag and continued to gaze and drool from afar. I'm a poor college student, after all. In one of my random eBay searches, I found an older style from the higher end line on eBay in a beautiful light blue color (my favorite color! and I've been wanting a purse with some color instead of the usual brown or black). Of course, you have to worry about authenticity, so I contacted the seller for more information on some of the little details of the bag. I wasn't 100% certain it was authentic (though some tPFers were very helpful and thought it looked good but to try and verify those details). The seller was also very helpful but had a bit of difficulty verifying some of those details. It looked very good (and isn't a popular style that is often faked, like the Stam), but I wasn't certain. The seller told me she would offer a buy-it-now price that was $40 below what she was originally asking, and would also overnight it to me for free. I wanted it badly, and agreed to get it if she would edit the auction to include a refund/return policy in case I wasn't satisfied. I received the bag the very next day, and it was flawless! More beautiful than I even expected, and in perfect condition. It was "used," but maybe carried only a couple of times because there wasn't a scratch on it. I got it for a ridiculously low price, and it is 100% authentic. The seller was so nice and helpful (responding quickly to all of my e-mails and being incredibly patient), and she even put a nice note inside the package that included her phone number in case I had any more questions. I'm so thankful to her! She made my entire week and I have such a gorgeous bag to show for it. I think transactions like these are becoming more and more rare on eBay, so it's nice to find a seller who will work with you and tries to get you a great deal. I'm so so happy with this bag! But I'm officially back on my "purse ban."
