THe only thing I can figure is that she has a lot of contacts with people who have come across them in a stroke of luck and/or SO'ed them, bought the bag to save face with their SA--and then sold them to said reseller.
Or she's paying people to go buy them, as has been rumored. That would explain the ludicrous markup.
what is the japanese brand catalogue? and if the above mentioned seller is THE one on ebay with ALL the crocs, are any fake? i also wonder how and why 1 person can get all these, when supposedly they are so rare.I asked this question at the Madison Ave. store last week,and also at my store.
They both said that while there are people who buy to re-sell,there just aren't THAT many bags. I was advised that many of the bags are not authentic, and to be wary of Ebay. I also left the Madison store the Japanese Brand Mall catalogue. They said that these are not authentic Hermes,and they had a good time looking at it. At the Madison store they said that they do try to watch for people that they suspect of buying just to re-sell.
well the main sellers with the crocs are CDL, Mightykismet and Hermes** (I have always wondered if Mightykismet wasnt also Hermes**)
