Alright, so the long and short of it: There's this little old lady who runs a very upscale resale shop in my hometown. I've gotten authentic Kate Spade bags from her in the past (for $30 or $40, no less!!!). She usually has no idea what she's got in the handbag department! And a lot of the wealthy ladies from this area (many of whom moved here from New York and California to try "the country thing") resell their things at her shop. I was in there Tuesday and spotted a large LV bucket bag! And I don't know if it's real or fake. It looks fabulous. The vachetta has even started to turn honey-colored on it. But I don't have a cell phone camera and I couldn't take pics! The inside zipper compartment was the kind that's surrounded by leather with the Louis Vuitton made in France stamped on it, and the zipper pull looks like authentic Louis Vuitton, but I can't be sure. Can anyone tell me more about this bag? What the lining is supposed to be, how to tell if it's fake? It's an older bag and I know back then they didn't use the leather that gets the patina, on fakes. Does anyone have this bag? Talk to me! Help! Because for $65, if it's real, it's SO mine.
