Yesterday I sent a few eMails to sellers auctioning Chanel Cabas bags, requesting varied clarifications. Only one answered, who was annoyed that I would question authenticity...blah, blah, blah. The others never bothered to answer. At this point I think I'm better off going to Saks/Neimans/Channel Boutique and buying retail. You just never know what you're going to get on eBay, and now I'm very cynical.
