mulberry alexa from ebay, yes or no? likely to be fake?
It's one post in the Mulberry Authentication thread - and it saves you from loads of hassle with ebay and paypal. There are so many fake bags on there that it is ridiculous. I personally wouldn't risk buying anything without having it authenticated first.
There are shops that specialise in selling second hand Mulberry bags and you could get one from one of the outlets - they sometimes have special discounts and offers so you can save extra. You could also wait for the sale, that's what I usually do...
Depends on colour, £300 sounds very cheap for an Alexa? I bought one from one off he outlets at Shepton mallet and then bought one from ebay from a well known/authenticated seller and it was £479 (and beautiful!!!)
really peasandlove ? even the sellers that bang on about how their stuff has been authenticated etc and offer money back guarantees etc?
I thought ebay were pretty hot on fakes, I was selling some kids Uggs (that were honestly genuine, they were from Schuh) a few weeks ago and the cunts removed them as they were trying to accuse me of selling fakes
Yes, I've sold quite a few branded things on eBay (bags unused for years cluttering up wardrobe, coat worn once for a wedding, etc.) and I promise they were all genuine! I've bought some nice bits too. You do just have to be careful when buying - if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
i went to new York last year and when i was in Chinatown saw loads and loads of fake handbags ie chanel, LV, etc and they were so shit it was embarrassing, you couldn't pay me to carry one of their about. AND they were like 100 dollars
Updating : after a LOT of hunting Am research I got a used one from eBay for the bargain price of £280, it was cheap as it had a pen leak inside so the lining is marked but doesn't bother me.
It arrived today and I am very sure it is genuine as it's gorgeous soft leather and quite heavy and all the fastenings etc look fine. however I'm going to nip it to the mulberry outlet in my town today just to be sure
Hope it's real as It's beautiful am in love haha x
