  1. I am new here, this forum was recommended to me from a member of another forum. I have loved Coach bags and accessories for years, however, I've only ever purchased from the retail store. I was on a buying hiatus for a few years and haven't gotten a new bag for quite awhile. I came across this bag while searching Ebay and fell in love. I want to get it, but want to make sure I'm getting an authentic bag. Since I've never purchased on Ebay before and have never actually even seen the bag in person, it was suggested I post here, in hopes someone could help me.

    These are the listings I'm currently looking at. I'm searching for the large Holiday Patchwork (pink) bag and a pink wallet of some sort, I'm not totally sure which one of those I want, either :smile:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. First of all...there is an authenticity thread on this forum which would be better suited for this question...

    Also, you'll probably need more descriptive pictures--including the creed--to get a firm answer since there are MANY good fakes out there!

    Good luck!
     
  3. Thank you! I will look for that thread!
