my friend and I were sitting having lunch and some guy approached us and put his business card on our table and said, "If you ladies are interested I work for a company that sells bags exactly like the ones you ladies are carrying right now". (I had my Batignolles Horizontal and my friend had her Speedy 25). I said, "Ummm actually the only place to get authentic Louis Vuitton is at Holt Renfrew or the actual LV store". His response: "Oh the ones you guys have are real?" Ummmm YEAH!!!! I felt so insulted!!! He then said that they sell Gucci and Prada, etc. and I said "Not a chance buddy!!" and he left. I was just so shocked that he would just assume that our bags are fake. That's the first time I've ever had anything like that happen and I must say....it felt GREAT knowing I was carrying the real deal. Just wanted to share!!!
