I was at a thrift store/consignment shop near my house the other day (Plato's Closet, they have them across the country), anyway and I've bought Coach bags from them before. Their return policy sucks but they said they were guaranteed authentic, checked out before they were put on the rack, 100% guarantee, etc. The ones I bought where to sell on eBay, not add to my collection. Anyway I've bought 2 and was looking at a blue suede small flap bag and considering buying it when I realized it was fake! I hadn't been looking for obvious signs since the lady assured me before that they were knowledgable about fakes and never sold them. This one looked good on the outside but didn't even have a serial # on the creed. It had signature pattern on the inside so it wasn't a really old bag or anything. Anyway, I told the lady who was working that it was fake and pointed out 4 or 5 things on the bag that made it fake, and she was just like, "Oh, okay." I was like, "Umm... you guys guarantee authentic bags. You probably want to take this off display." And she was just like, "Yeah... maybe." WTF? Would you let it go or call back and talk to a manager the next day or what? I didn't want to a cause a scene but I don't want anyone to buy it thinking it's real either!
