With all of the Louis Vuitton I've purchased, I've never acquired a single piece at a boutique. All of my buys have been through eBay. I've been to a boutique once to have my Jasmin authenticated (and was offered a job based on my knowledge of the collections ), but that was about it. I've heard that nothing beats making a purchase at Louis Vuitton itself, but I can't resist the chance of finding a good deal on eBay. Not to mention that with all of the horror stories about rude SAs lately, I don't know that I'd want to go anytime soon. I might curse someone out. What about your buys?
