Ok, so I think its a fad or something because designer bags are so popular these days. Again, here we go, I did a test, I have a fake LV wallet, nope didn't buy off the streets that some poor kid suffered child labor an all that stuff....but just the same, and this is in writing as proof, Nike has sneakers made "just and example" for 2 bucks but brings them over to the states and sells them for hundreds and they say for long hours and hardly money, anyways that's another subject. O, Walmart too, I read an article about them...I got this wallet from a GW "goodwill store" Then I went to this pricey Mall, that sold LV I took the wallet with me and asked to see the same exact wallet, it was unbelievable. EXACT down to the last detail, How did I know it was fake? I almost forgot LV uses 1 whole piece of the material to make whatever, they do not cut and use sections. I came to the conclusion that the people who make the original authentic LV bags must also make the fake ones too. Just not the same material and details. I can't say that I am or I am not into designer bags because I love shoes and bags, but never would I pay the price. Did I tell you my girlfriend I went to the mall with that day purchased a 700.00 bag. I was thinking of all the bills I could pay with that money...well, she has money so its easy for her. I like some fake bags, they do look good, but I am still a little reserved about buying them, not because of child labor...I still believe it does have some truth but it hyped up because these million dollar companies are loosing money. You should have seen all the Wall street people on Canal street, NY buying fake items...I guess these companies would be loosing money. I have purchased fake items but they pretty much feel apart, I guess that's what I get, the quality was terrible. Now don't attach me because of what I said, I just can't understand how people would spend 1Millions bucks on a purse.

Goodwill and Salvation Army are the best places in the world. I can't for the life of me bring myself to buy a purse or any accessory over 20$ So what I do is keep a list of all the closest gw and sa stores and go at least once or twice a month to search for stuff. Alot of people just do look and buy browse, I do deeep searches. One time I found a really nice Volcom wallet and paid 50 cents for it and looked online and it was still in season and cost $30.

Yeah, I did the same thing with a Falchi wallet, knew nothing about the name, I just like the color, well come to find out my 50 cent purchase was going for 45.00 bucks...WOW! I was almost tempted to sell it!
