I recently had a conversation with a boutique I go into on occasion regarding their selling of used fake handbags. I was told by an employee 'Oh, I don't remember how, but the way she does it, makes it ok for her to get away with it and not get in trouble". So, I thought "B.S.", but said 'Mmm Hmmm". Now, today, I get an email from a different, upscale clothing store that informs me of new arrivals. She said she was getting in chanel, fendi and louis vuitton sunglasses. O.K. then. So being the Aries personality that I am, I phone her and present it in a way that I don't want her vendor to have misled her and don't want her to get caught selling illegal items. The convo goes fine and she's not offended or defensive, but she says, "Oh, I don't pass them off as LV or chanel (Um...the email called them that???...but I said nothing) and I'm selling them for very cheap, not for hundreds to make anyone think they're real. My vendor knows they're not and informed me as well and if anyone asks, I tell them, so it's fine." So I tell her about another shop in town that recently got busted selling fake kate spade bags and her response, "I know the owner, she'd never pass them off as real that didn't happen. She knows they're not real so it's ok" Ok friends. I don't get it. I must be missing some info. about selling replica's. What's the loop hole that I'm missing that allows seemingly, my entire city, to be under the assumption that the 'way' they're presenting the merchandise makes it ok?
