My girlfriend called me in a rage, she bought a bag from eBay a few months ago, a black multicolore speedy. The seller bought it from an auction house in California which authenticated it. My friend took it to LV store and the manager also authenticated it so all was well in her world. She broke the zipper (got something caught and seperated the teeth on the zipper from yanking on it). She took it and dropped it off for repair and was notified that they will not fix it because upon inspection, it is a replica. She contacted the seller and he told her he had no problem giving her money back to her but he also contacted the auction house to get his back. I actually feel sorry for both of them. Are replicas really that good? I read a thread about a multicolore wallet that was very difficult to tell. I've been eyeballing some things on eBay and now I think I'm just purchasing from eLuxury or the boutiques.
