so, ladies , from the previous thread, i come to this conclusion.

http://forum.purseblog.com/louis-vuitton/am-i-crazy-balenciaga-vs-lv-678239.html

today, i mailed off my monogram petit noe and epi arche pochette to Yoogi's Closet. i kept my yellow epi petit noe and i am super happy with my decision. the best way !!! was intended to sell it to my local consignment store but something ridiculous happened. the owner of the consignment store just kept saying that my LV pieces is fake.

1) says my epi bags doesnt feel like leather, and doesnt feel like canvas as well.

LOL, i told her that it is authentic and this is call epi leather. and she says, "it doesnt smell like leather. where is the leather smell?" OH MY GOD wad is she thinking? man, then she says my yellow epi (all authenticated in TPF) is definitely a fake. so fake. the touch is wrong as well. then, she touched her burberry bag n says, "see this is canvas. the touch is different. ur those lv is just something not like this. see burberry's canvas and leather handles? u says urs is leather but u see is not the same as burberry's leather? that is call leather. i dun think urs is real. "
she is real lucky to be able to touch my epi bags.

2) and she points at the stitching, says the epi stitching is not perfect enough for a LV. her family do sewings and clothings so she knows this is wrong. Man what is she thinking?

3) right after, she point at burberry and says: see? it has a label tag inside. UR LV doesnt have a tag inside. it shud be a fake. LOL i tell her that, it doesnt have a tag and she shud go LV official website to see. she was like, "oh u see we have different opinion. i cant sell fake stuff u know? "

showed her my speedy and tell her. LOOK LV doesnt have label inside. she grab the speedy pull (the leaf?) and flip it over and comment:" this leather is unfinished" then she look at both sides of the bags and says, :" see? these leather are unfinished. the under side of the leather is wrong, furry . ur speedy is fake. "

had a headache after this conversation. she now says :" well if u really says ur LV brown bag (monogram petit noe) is authentic , i can consign it for 2 weeks, lets try 2 weeks and see how it goes." and i reply :" nah, i have a better deal in the US. sorry about that" and i left the shop.

Wow oh wow... you are so lucky that she said that to you. As funny as it sounds now, can you imagine if she said nothing and sold it for a low price to a customer because it was "fake"? Sounds like she has NO idea about LV. I'd be terrified of letting someone like that selling my designer bags - if she knows nothing about LV, who knows what else she knows nothing about! Good luck with your consignor in the States - at least they know their LV!

I'm so glad you decided to keep your yellow epi noe... not only is it such a cute and useful bag, but we are still bag twins :lol:

That's scary that she has no clue what the difference between real and fake. I would be afraid to buy from her as anyone can come in with a bag and as long as it has a label inside she will sell it. Ugh so glad you decided to send it to Yoogi's. Good Luck!

ferdi : LOL i would imagine that she will do something funny to my bags. this is so scary, what if she bend the epi until it has a bend mark and give it back to me because no one wants to buy it? oh my god, hahahhahahha~ her name card is in front of me "Specialising in recycled european designer" . i almost slipped my mouth, was going to ask her to buy a ticket sydney and learn more about european designers. but i think i will offend her so i just kept quiet.

YAY i think the epi is too cute to let it go. bag twins :hugs: bf ask me not to be afraid of pulling the petit noe's leather string. overtime it will be softer.

thank you :biggrin: yeah almost all the criteria she listed is bias towards a fake bag. oh my god she should really go to the LV websites to look at the real things at least once...

lol...i have a consignment in my town like that, too. Lady swears that she can authenticate bags...but meanwhile was selling a fake Prada backpack with a big "MADE IN CHINA" tag sewn right into the bottom..lol
yeah i just dun understand them. why they just cant take some time to do some research ? it is their business. shudnt they be more concern about authenticity more than anyone else ?

That's surprising...Yoogis has been pretty good with me. In fact I had sold an authentic Dior bag to them that Fashionphile had rejected (I purchased from Dior store). I don't know where the standards are set. I am sorry that you had a horrible experience. It's humiliating having to argue with someone about the authenticity about the handbag.

Just wow! It's scary that there are people out there that think they know everything when they actually know SH*T! Op, you are a much more patient and tolerant person than me. If it were me I would be totally chewing that lady's head off and would have told her to go and get educated! Btw I don't understand why she'd compare a LV to a Burberry. The materials of the two used aren't even the same! lol!

Anyways, good luck with consigning your stuff! :biggrin:

Oh, reading too fast...sorry.

I love Yoogi's closet. They respond quickly and I always receive my check on time. I like the fact that I could print out UPS shipping label online. It's great!
