  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. How do sellers have inventory of more than one version of a designer bag, that Saks/Neiman's/Boutiques do not have?:shrugs::shrugs:
     

  2. are you sure they are authentic bags? :shrugs:
     
  3. They may work for/own a designer store
     
  4. No one can be absolutely sure they're authentic IMHO until you see the bag......:yes:
     
  5. Consignments

  6. ITA with all the previous posters. It's really rare that one person owns so much authentic stuff that they're dumping it on eBay; I've only seen it once, and the woman had an incredible collection of Pucci clothes, designer bags, etc. You could tell from the pics that this was major riche.

    She sold about 90% of it and removed the rest. Never had anything else to sell, at least not under the original seller's name.
     
  7. I know there are trading assistants on ebay who help other people sell high upscale designer items and charge a small fee for that.
    Also, some consignment stores and boutiques have Ebay stores. However, if you see somebody selling more than 4-5 bags that are exactly the same, chances are that they are fake.
     
  8. I agree I've seen a few consignment shops in my area (los angeles) that have ebay user ids and sell on ebay
     
  9. yes and some consignment stores have a lot of inventory
     
  10. I am always careful when I see multiple bags of the same style from one seller. And, if the seller is only using a stock photo from Saks, Neiman's, etc., I never bid on the item. This almost guarantees that the items are fake.
     
  11. I second that :yes:
     
  12. Definately agree.

    Also, most of the time, if they have more than one of the same bag - the photos are all the same not of the actual individual bags.
     
  13. an ebay seller with multiple bags of the same style??

    hmm... it's possible, but i'd be very leery (especially if they're all listed as new!)...
