Thanks ZG. I looked in Macy's yesterday but could not find it. Kids were too tired by the time i got to Nordstrom ...LOL!
I will check out the websites of those stores. And i have sometimes found that the sale prices for designer stuff in stores is less than some of what is selling used on ebay!
In any case i was looking for something new in box, not used!"You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have."

Not sure where to post this exactly, but I thought this bag looked like an obvious replica to me.
I went to LoveCulture a few days ago and was not surprised to see this SOOO obvious KNOCKOFF of Balenciaga's City bag:
Ew. They also have a hobo bag that resembles the LV Mahina, but with Dooney's Zebra print pattern. It's so disgusting.LUSTING: TREESJE Mini Magnolia or Asher (w/braided handle), Black/Gunmetal Jovi or Crimson
ARRIVING SOON: Rebecca Minkoff the Affair & Kiss Clutch in Fine Wine (on a major ban till 2011)

I only look for more obscure items on ebay that aren't as apt to be mass faked. It's a terrible problem, but until customers shuts them off.... we're going to have to deal with it.

Most people couldn't tell a fake if it had FAKE written on it anyway. Which is a shame really.
I'd be embarrassed to wear a fake, even if no one else could tell it wasn't real.**Wish List ** Fendi - Peekaboo, B-Bag ~~ Hermes - Birkin 35cm in ostrich leather
Valentino - Petale Dome Bag, Bondage Bag ~~ Prada - Tessuto & Ricamo Tote, Spazzolato tote.
**And the money to buy them with**

I have purchased a lot of Dooney's in my time and typically spot the fakes (at least the all weather leather ones). I would report them, and some were pulled others were not. Now it seems like they don't even care when you report the items as they don't pull them. It appears that the almighty $$$$ (in collected fees) is more important to them than the buyers.

I recently had rant on Facebook about fakes, as I'd seen several friends' posts linking to a replica designer bag wholesaler. It just made me so angry to read the posts in the link- "do you deliver to melbourne" etc. So I flew into a rant- only to be told by one that her neck was sore-would I please get off my high horse. I just don't know how to get through to these people. My rant included child labor and terrorism funding, but this meant nothing to them. ggrrrrrrr..

^^^ With some people, there is really nothing you can say or do that will change their mind. Mr BRS and I talk about these types of things all the time. People can just be so oblivious sometimes to where the stuff that they are buying comes from. It's like they are robots, programmed to only think about what is directly around them and how those things will affect them. We are all guilty of it though to some degree, it's just the way our society works.
