I use my BF's eBay account to shop stuff I want. Lately, I've been on a kate spade rampage. I take extra precautions in making sure it's real and all but the fear is always there. So all response to my inquiries (like "Does this come with the dust bag and care card?") gets sent to his email and he forwards it to me. I was looking through my emails today and saw his forwards and I see the title for one that I have already read when I logged into his eBay acocunt. Nevertheless I opened it and ended up choking on my drink out of laughter. See, I asked the seller what I typically ask: "Does this come with the dust bag and care card?" and the seller's response was "what's a dustbag" to which I explained what it was and that it is usually in the bag when first purchased. So I opened the email and right above the seller's "what's a dustbag?" is my BF's stern yet funny warning: "Don't you dare buy this" I think I died right there. He knows more about identifying real kate spades than I do. I was whining that the bag I won and that was sent to his house might not be real and how I wasn't careful enough. Well, he spent two hours on ihatecounterfeitbags.info (and many more prior to today) and called me back to tell me that it is indeed authentic and that he is 100% sure cause the made in USA tags is the real thing as on the website, that the zipper is ykk, the lining is not of any fakes and he matched the kate spade label to the authentic kate spade label (both on the website and on my kate spade from the store which is at his house) stitch per stitch. I thought it was funny and I'd share it. LOL.
