    Default Advice on "second grade designer bags"

    Hi,

    I would appeciate a bit of advice! I love my designer bags and save up to splash out and treat myself a couple of times a year.

    A lady I know says she has contacts with people who can get what is called "second grade designer bags". Now I have seen these bags myself and compared them with bags I have that are authentic and there is no difference in the design etc they seem the real deal!.. No difference at all.

    Why they are called second grade bags is apparently the actual designer produces them but there is the tiniest flaw in them meaning the designer cannot sell them but the majority of people wouldn't notice. This lady then sells them much cheaper and she actually has a couple of great clients who have been on tv.

    They also have dustbags and authenticity cards.

    Now I have never heard of this before but before I go spending my money on these products I just wanted other peoples views - are these authentic or full on replicas, has anyone ever heard of these bags?

    If so I can get a YSL bag for 80 instead of 360!

    Advice very much appreciated!

    Thanks x

    Uhm, I would be very wary of this. Also, I think it's pretty impossible to get a Yves Saint Laurent bag for 70 (= about $111 U.S. dollars)

    Don't do it, that lady is scamming you. Unfortunately these days replicas look just like the real deal, even the cards and dustbags even hologram stickers on the inside are copied.

    I'm not familiar with that term "second grade designer bags" -- It's important to remember that we're talking highend designers here. Do you really think they would let one of their pieces of art hit circulation even with the tiniest flaw? I think not.

    Good luck!

    You do have an excellent point there.
