I keep running into this excuse..."I don't know if this is real, I picked it up for my wife in New York and she doesn't like it"...etc.... What idiot would fall for this? Example... I bought this for 149.99 when I was in New York. It is a perfect replica from the outside in. It has just been sitting in my closet since I got back so it is still in brand new condition. If you would like to come take a look at it give me a call at 503-679-8287 or leave me an email. Thank you for looking.
