Here are quick tips: Be careful of offers that are too good to be true. Nobody is going to give away a $12,000 bag for much less, claiming that the bag was given to them as a gift, for example.
This is usually the case with luxury leather bags, as well as other highly sought-after designer bags. Try not to hope to get a luxury leather bag that is in great condition for a lot less at retail. Your expectation might be cut short.
However, remember that experienced con artists will most likely value a bag in the right range since they feel it helps create the fantasy that the bag is genuine.
While buying your luxury bags from a website, ensure to see photos of the sides of the bag, with a clear view of both lining and zipper ends; on a bag, clearly stating the distinguishing features.
Make sure the photos are clear enough that you can see all sides and the stitching carefully (zooming should be possible).
It's best to deal with people who have built a good reputation and business on the sale of authentic goods over time, even if that means paying more for the item as opposed to purchasing from an amateur seller with almost no existing customer reviews.
If the seller has a good reputation for selling authentic goods, you can be rest assured that if anything goes wrong with the transaction, you are dealing with a reputable business person and the necessary measure to deliver would be taken.
The Authentic Bag
Getting the right leather bag can be a chore because of the many options available, so do your research ahead of time on authentic bags with the specific color and leather you want.
You can also be specific on the stitching, size and how well it'll match some selected outfits in your wardrobe. You want a bag that you'll always be proud of, so being detailed in your research is no crime.
While there is no perfect bag, don't settle. After all, it's your money. So spend it wisely.
