Okay ladies (and gents) as you know when I joined this forum I was an eBay-virgin; and I was extremely cautious of making eBay purchases. But... after seeing the last-season bags that some of my fellow bloggers were getting I started checking out the eBay stock... I found 2 B-bags (both pre-fall 2005) and started pining after them. The one bag was being offered by Personalshoppers and I felt confident buying her bag because of Fayden's vouching; as well as, the 1000 positive feedback she has recieved. It was her bag; no tags, no receipt, was used by her, so I got it for a good deal. The other bag was an ice blue city; offered by a tFS member who bought it from Ebay from another tFS member. After asking about the original tFS member durbs_girl I felt pretty confident buying this bag too. So, D-day - both bags are here - I pull them out...tags are perfect, bales are perfect, leather looks right, smells right, but...I just can't get accept the ice blue one entirely. Why oh why does each b-bag style have to have different subtle nuances???? :evil: I own a Twiggy and a Box (bought brand new from auth retailers) however, they do not have the same interior zipper compartments as the city's, then the medium is sewn at the sides different than the first....I am driving myself crazy - I am sure the IB City is the real deal - but, I have this little voice telling me I got duped... Is this normal for my first Ebay excursion?? The first time any of you purchased an expensive bag off of Ebay did you go through this period of doubt? I am afraid if I carry it I will see a city and think that mine is fake - but, what if the one I see is fake?? Now, I feel like I need to buy a city from Bal-NY to prove/disprove my bag - and that is crazy!! :shame: :sad2: Anyway - the 05's have had subtle changes from the 06's. If the interior tags and the bales are right shoud I just relax?? Yes, I will post pictures, but, I am not asking for you guys to authenticate - I am merely asking if anyone else has ever had this Ebay trepidation after their first time buying?? Thanks ladies (and gents) for reading and replying.
