I bought a paddington from eBay from what appeared to be a reputable seller. I never buy anything from eBay, all my purse are bought right from the store. But I am in Canada and I can't find any Chole Paddington here, so I can't really tell the difference between authentic and a replica. ush: If anyone can send me a enlarge picture of the paddington they have, it would be greatly appreciated. (I can return the purse to the seller).
