Hey everyone, I finally got my first LV's I'm too budget conscious right now to order new ones. But, thanks to PF help, I was able to research and discover some great deals on authentic LV on eBay. I was actually going to order a pochette on elux, but then I found this one on eBay -- posted on "authenticate this" -- and am now sure that I got a real, gorgeous little bag. It even has a honey patina. I'd seen lots of fake LV's before, so was really impressed with how well-made and elegant the real one is: eBay: 100% AUTHENTIC LOUIS VUITTON POCHETTE HANDBAG BAG $280 (item 300027457504 end time Sep-16-06 18:41:57 PDT) After this, I found a vintage speedy 30 that just arrived yesterday. I LOVE it I'm in LV heaven now. Although, naturally, now I want more...but I'm going to stick with these two for awhile and save money eBay: Vintage Original LOUIS VUITTON SPEEDY Handbag Purse (item 220030868324 end time Sep-29-06 18:07:34 PDT) Anyway, I'm going to start hanging out here more and admiring your gorgeous bags!!!
