I just bought a genuine mulberry east west bayswater bag. i bought it off ebay for £400, it was brand new with all tags etc intact. The seller even gave me the receipt.
As i dont own a bag like this..i am just wondering if the price i paid seems reasonable? How much are they usually for?
I am looking online but cant seem to find a price for it (or maybe im looking in the wrong places) can someone let me know if ive been ripped off or not...please!

have registered with purse form...cant start anything just yet.

will take it to westfield or something at some point to get it checked...

Right, I missed the photo you posted. I'm on my phone and it didn't display with the app.

I'm pretty certain it's a genuine bag having seen that.

Whether the receipt is genuine or not is irrelevant - it's a receipt for a different bag entirely.

The east-west is a different shape-it's wider but not so high. More of a rectangle shape and the Bayswater is more square and boxy- they are very different.

squalorvictoria: your opinion is important to me. so what do you think it is...

The receipt says 'bayswater pebbled' which is what the seller has described it as.

znisa123 Sat 20-Jul-13 18:04:04

missbopeep: you think its not the ledbury or the bayswater...

Sorry, I'd forgotten that we'd established the receipt didn't say East West Bayswater. Bloody confusing thread, this confused

znisa123 Sat 20-Jul-13 18:10:15

it says 'Pebbled Bayswater'...
is there such a bag lol

missbopeep Sat 20-Jul-13 18:11:04

OP- why do you keep asking? If you want to know and want a refund via Ebay then take it to a store.

The name of it is neither here nor there.

Your only question should be is it genuine, whatever style it is, and if it's not then what come-back do you have to the seller.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure you are who you say you are and this is a genuine query- some things don't stack up- such as the drip-drip info about it all once someone asks you more questions.

many apologies if I am wrong here.

OP why not do your own research? You have been told where to go for help why not do that.

I think the 'pebbled' refers to the type of leather.
I would say it is (as the seller described it)
outlet special bayswater in graphite pebbled leather
They were selling them in outlets as recently as June for around £490.

If you search 'graphite bayswater' on the purse forum you will see lots of threads mentioning them.

I am going to take it in to get it checked out.

i just wanted to confirm whether it was genuine or not.
and if the receipt is actually for that bag.

i am a genuine person. im on facebook...cant believe you guys think that i am now fake..
lets leave it at that then.

thanks

Mulberry generally will not do authentications.

You need to go on the purseforum's authentication thread and post there. It's here: forum.purseblog.com/mulberry-shopping/authenticate-this-mulberry-please-read-post-1-first-803750.html
Do not create a new thread about the bag on the forum - they don't like that at all.

Make sure you read the first post, then post all pictures they are asking for and provide the info they ask for. As you have the bag, ensure to take good enough pictures to show details.

OP I think you are genuine! I think it's unfortunate that you started the thread wrongly identifying the bag but I think the story that unfolds sounds very genuine. I'm inclined to think the bag is real but of course if I wanted to sell fake items I would try and come up with a plausible story so it could still be a fraudster.

I have bought a bag from a mulberry outlet before, changed my mind and sold it in eBay. I sold it for about what it cost and only got one bid, presumably because those in the know knew they could buy one direct from an outlet with less risk. So it does happen! The seller is in Somerset so would certainly have access to that outlet.

Secondly though you are restricted from starting new threads on purse forum til you have built up posting history I'm pretty sure you can immediately post on the existing long running authentication thread. In fact if you search on the eBay item number you may find someone already has authenticated the bag.

I hope the bag is proved genuine and you can let yourself love it! It's a lovely classic bag, though maybe not ideal for a heat wave. It will be fab to carry in the autumn.

missbopeep Sat 20-Jul-13 18:52:36

Op- your posts are full of contradictions. You first said she told you that she worked at the Somerset outlet store. Then when someone queried this you said she was starting work there in Sept. There are lots of things about this which don't add up.........

znisa123 Sat 20-Jul-13 19:45:47

Thank you all.

missbopeep: i said 'she works for mulberry' instead of 'she will work for mulberry'... is that it? WoW....i appreciate your honesty.

Oh i think i said i paid £400 instead of £450 (slight oversight)

The bag looks genuine to me. I went to the outlets a few weeks ago and they were still selling this bayswater. It is an outlet special so they are made in the factory just to be sold at the outlets. Therefore it isn't a sub like the other current season bags you can get from the outlets.

If you look at this thread on the purse forum a user lists all the outlet stock and your bag is appearing on there in April. forum.purseblog.com/mulberry-shopping/post-outlet-finds-stock-here-no-chatter-775566-6.html

Oh and I think if she had bought the bag with staff discount then they slash the inside label so you can't resell it. From the photos the inside label looks fine.

I don't know if the bag is genuine or not, I just wanted to say regarding op being the only bidder, I feel that nowadays, because of all the fakes about, people are scared of buying off eBay. Being the only bidder doesn't make me think it's a fake, it just makes me think no one else dares to bid that much on a bag that might not be real.

Good for ŷou tho if it turns out to be real, bargain!

rosesandpirates Sat 20-Jul-13 21:47:05

Gosh, I would never dream of buying a mulberry bag off ebay!

rosesandpirates Sat 20-Jul-13 22:23:51

Sorry, just realised my last post is not very helpful. One thing that I can contribute is that none if my mulberry bags had a plastic covering over the fobs etc. not sure if that is a red flag or not?

lizandlulu Sun 21-Jul-13 08:38:31

Mine have. All of the bought from house of frazer and I have always left them on as long as possible to prevent scratches. I don't think they all have had them, but defiantly some of them
