handles come seperately??

  1. Hi Guys,

    I've been investigating various fendis on ebay...not ready to buy yet, but trying to figure them out.

    Anyway, have any of you ever bought a fendi and had the handles, or leather straps, packaged SEPERATELY, like you have to buckle them in yourself? That seems a bit odd.

    Here is an example of one on ebay:
  2. I have never purchased a bag (Fendi or otherwise) with handles that came separately from the bag. I think it's one of the sure signs of a FAKE .

    I think it's great you're doing some research before buying. If only more people did that :smile:
  3. Definitely not. I can't imagine a premier handbag customer expecting customers to DIY, even repairs.
  4. That is unusual. It looks like it could be real from the clasp.
    I got this on the seller from toolhous.org:
    This buyer seems to have a problem reading an ad 2" below bid before she bids
