Whether you are planning to buy a handbag for everyday use or to make up your collection, it is important to consider closely the qualities of the authentic that set it apart from the fake one. The most basic consideration or indicator would be the store from which you are buying the bag from. Most designer bags are available in rare specialized shops. So, if you are being sold bags in uncommon places, then you need to be suspicious.
Even if the handbag is sold at an expensive price, it still offers no guarantee. Fake sellers have caught on to the idea that the price is a good indicator about the authenticity of the product being sold, which causes more damage to the victim. Not only are they buying fake handbags, but they are paying them for the price of an authentic one.
In addition, avoid buying from stores that sell both authentic and fake handbag due to the possibility of being mixed up. Some even do this on purpose. You can also check out online stores that sell authentic brands, such as auction sites like eBay. These sites employ strict screenings on items placed on their site to ensure that you are not getting faked and yet you can get them for great deals.
Also, try to examine the inside of the handbag. You can tell from the materials used and how well it is made. An authentic brand is well made, inside and out. Take note of the stitching patterns and pockets. Fake ones have poor interior stitching because all they focus on is what is visible from the outside.
