So I'm at OctoberFest on Saturday night enjoying some Bratwursts & really big Beers when my cell phone rings. It's a friend of mine telling me she's right down the road at a purse party. She proceeds to tell me they have tons of Coach & asks me if I want to stop by. Already knowing the answer, I ask "Are they real?". She tells me that the girl told them that everything is real just with small imperfections!!!! Since I'd been drinking I refrained from comment but politely told her I wouldn't be able to stop by. This morning she comes in toting this god-awful Fendi bag. She said that she got it for $80 & also got a few Tiffany pieces that were also "authentic but with small imperfections"! I couldn't take it anymore.. I proclaimed "Do you honestly believe that these designers would dump their merchandise to people conducting Purse parties?!" Her defense was that they had to be because the lady took Credit Cards, had a real business name & offered a guarantee on their merchandise!!! Come On!!! Any schmo with a Paypal account can take credit cards!!! I think I scared her! So I told her that I have nothing against her buying the bag...what I take offense to is this woman claiming that her products are Authentic!!!
