Lot's of people seem to have horror stories about buying bags that turned out to be fake that I have read on the various threads. Some people got lucky and were able to return it and get their money back. Some people weren't. I am one of those people. My fake is what led me to tpf, so at least that is a bit of good news on the whole thing But I was curious what did you do with a 'really expensive fake' if you've ever been stuck with one? I'll start. Mine sits in my closet in it's (fake) dustbag. Somehow, I'm not ready to get rid of it yet. I don't know why really. I admit, I have carried it once or twice......people even asked me if it was a real Fendi and I said "oh no, just a fake" not wanting to lie and be that person. But I want to carry my real bags (I have been SOOOOO careful since). They just FEEL BETTER mentally, KWIM? So I guess the fake is doomed to my boring closet. Maybe it's the fate a fake deserves?
