I'm so torn because I've found the mini I've been wanting for ages but it's from a seller off Instagram. Has anyone purchased a bag from one of these sellers and had a good experience?

Some of the sellers on Instagram are authentic resellers with actual brick and mortar stores and some are fakes. So it depends who you are looking at. I have bought from one who has a physical store and posts the bags on Instagram. Don't think I would have if I couldn't see actual store.

Also, some will provide additional authentication from a third party if you want it.

I think it's fine as long as you can get enough pictures to verify authenticity and can pay via paypal.

Yes I'm happy to report (and 2 bags later) that I successfully purchased 2 authentic hard-to-find bags from IG sellers. Both worked with me and let me pay via PayPal but I did have to pay the 4% fees on PayPal. This was worth the protection for me!

I think it depends on the seller, know who the seller is (maybe their personal IG account, so you know who you are buying from) see if they have a website or a brick & mortar location. Know the bag you are getting etc. there are a lot of good sellers on IG (and the ones that sell fakes are obvious) do some research it's not all bad.

Do you mind sharing the names? I have a few Thai IG resellers I'm not 100 percent they're legit tho.

Through hashtags of the purse you want usually works. But there's a lot of fakes too but there's honest ppl out there too saying they're selling replicas. Just depends...
