Hi! I just signed up today-I recently got into pruses and handbags and found this forum through craigslist. it looks like you ladies only buy the really good stuff! I can't afford brand new Marc jacobs ($600 and up for a bag? yikes!) and LV, etc. I am starting small with Maxx NY and some used Marc Jacobs-does anyone else here do that? I also buy from eBay if it is someone with very good feedback. I live in NY-the land of replica bags-how do people feel about those? i would think not good-LOL! Does anyone here buy the lower end designer bags? Alrighty-going to look around now!
