    Default What do you think about a 25 year old French Company Speedy 30 for $125?

    There's a local gal selling a Monogram Speedy 30 for $125 on Craigslist and it appears to be a French Company bag (which jives with her saying she bought it in 1985 at Bullocks). From the pics it looks authentic but the pics are limited and I asked to see more. What do you guys think about French Company bags from that era? If it looks good should I buy it? Here's the link...

    **AUTHENTIC LOUIS VUITTON HANDBAG,

    For being 25 years old, its in descent condition, I thought it would look really bad. If you like this and you can work with the condition, I say go for it.

    Thanks for the feedback. :) See here's my thing...I can't spend $650+ on a bag and I'd love to get a LV so my only chance is to get a used bag. I'm really hoping she'll send me some more pics and it'll look good. I won't even waste my money if it looks like crap.

    I agree with Juicy. It's in pretty good condition for it's age. If it's authentic, i say go for it.

    Thanks lrc. And girls if anyone wants to say, "Don't waste your money on that piece of crap" it won't hurt my feelings. :) I want your opinions here just keep in mind that I'm on a budget.

    Honestly, it looks pretty beat up. The handles are really dark and it looks really used. I would say maybe put that $125 towards a newer (than '85) Speedy. There are good deals out there you just have to wait for them, and eBay is a great place for them.

    I went on eBay and there are some reasonably priced LV Speedy 30's for less than $300. Here's one I found for $299 OBO. Here's another one $300 BIN, or bid on it.

    I think you would be happier spending a little more if you can because you don't want a bag that is so used that it might not last for much longer. You can always get the handles re-done at an expense.

    You have actually brought up a really great point that I've been wondering about. I see a lot of these used bags out of Japan and was wondering about their legitamacy. Many of the sellers have great feedback and sell tons of these. Do the Japanese ladies just love their LV? These bags in general look pretty legit. Do you think they're OK?

    Asian women, and men for that fact, are the largest buyers of LV. There's some argument of that percentage being because counterfeiters purchasing for replication. They buy bags so that they can copy the bag exactly. There's a huge luxury consignment in Japan and there are even stores that specialize in re-selling bags. The ones I linked you to are authentic, and a lot of the time the Japanese resellers on eBay are authentic.
