I bought a mulberry bayswater off ebay. It checks out against all the things it is supposed to have and look like and I am pretty sure it is genuine. You just need to be careful and know what you are looking for the signs. If you google it you will find some info about what to look for.
Agree with previous post that buying a well used one is better as not only is it nicely worn in but more likely to be genuine.
Having said that I don't use mine as much as I thought I would and am considering selling it but am worried I wont get much for it on ebay as people will think it is fake. Bah.
I wont list the bayswateri have for sale on ebay as there are so many fakes i do use TPF if i ever see a bag on there but i use the outlets alot, if you know anyone whos interested in buying a genuine mulberry bayswater let me know
if you take it to a mulberry shop and they say its fake ebay will refund you the money, they are really hot on this and will always rule in favour of the buyer
i imagine there are lots of fakes on there though that no one bothers checking out once they have bought them. although otoh it means you can get a real bargain thats genuine, i did (see other thread lol)
I've got a Mulberry messenger bag that I've barely used so was going to sell it on eBay but not sure now. I can see it from the buyers point of view that you would be worried about fakes. Not familiar with pre loved so will check it out
Oh OK Moody. I don't know what mine is called. I must have had it for about 15 years at least and used it about 3! It's black, sort of crocodile, shiny leather with a longish leather shoulder strap. It's oblong and quite shallow depthwise. You could get a brolly in it and a purse/bit of make up, keys etc. I don't have a camera or I could post a pic. I don't know why I've never used it because it's really plain and very nice. But I just haven't. I remember I got it in either Harrods or Selfridges in London when I was feeling v flush
I'm another one that was previously considering selling 3 or 4 bags on eBay to fund imminent twin arrival and will now look at selling through a third party. I have receipts for everything and dust bags etc but I don't want to risk someone deciding they're fakes if eBay always side with the buyer.
