Hi I found this site while browsing looking for info on the gorgeous Thomas Wylde purse everyone is raving about. I have to say I was shocked that there are so many of you out there looking for "authentic" Marc Jacobs purses and having problems. I purchase Neiman Marcus returns (Various brands and styles). Some are returned due to defects (those I obviously leave) and many are returned to stores that dont stock that brand so many get sold at discount. (they are brand new some with tags and some without but are in perfect condition). I sell on eBay (im not going to give my name as Im not here to promote my site - I think thats probably against the rules anyway right?) and cant believe just how many fakes/copies are out there. It makes it very frustrating and difficult for us honest sellers. I am passionate about purses and quality shoes and just hate to see all these people purchasing what I know and probably you guys know are fakes at high prices. I have an authentic Stam bag ($1200) for sale right now at a substantial discount and noone has grabbed it yet probably because all these fakes are driving down the price. I just wanted to let you know that there are many sellers in the eBay community (I know a lot I see them at the same sales! ) out there that when they say Authentic they mean that Authentic. Please look at a sellers feedback - if its private my suggestion is stay clear, look at what they have sold (some sell a bunch of 1c recipes just to get their feedback up), look at what they have bid on (you can go to the advanced search and put in a users name and see what they have sold in last 30 days and what they have bid on) many purchase little things just to drive up their feedback. Take your purchase to an autherised dealer for verification of authenticity (but make sure its not someone that knows what they are talking about and not just trying to make you feel bad for purchasing on eBay!). Take your time research and the best of luck ps pls excuse and typos...Im still trying to work out all these Icons etc!!!
