There’s a saying ‘Suckers are born every minute’ and I believe it!
Because officially – I am one of them!!
You see, I have been eyeing this Anya Hindmarch ‘I am not a plastic bag’ bag. It’s already sold out everywhere! I’ve been lurking in eBay – to find that – THERE ARE KNOCK-OFFs! What else is new, right? Well, – okay – I have looked at so many pictures that I think that I can spot a fake one from a genuine one.
There’s this seller in a forum I’m part of – and she posted that she’s selling one. She posted it on her site and in the site – there were 6 images. Okay – for a normal person – I think the pictures she supplied were enough – but as I learned from the expert goodguyyoung of eBay – he made a review actuallly it’s not a review – it’s a guide on how to spot a fake Anya Hindmarch – a buyer should ask for more pictures!
And so, I sent her an SMS to ask if she can give me more pictures, closer images of the letters – she replied to me with ‘Pics? Wat m0re do u nid? Yes, its authentc‘ Okay – fine, I’m a skeptic when it comes to these things – but when I asked for the price – it was a whopping – Php6,500.00 approximately USD140.00! Now, that’s freaking TOO MUCH already!
I know people are cashing in on the cheap Anya Hindmarch bag and since it’s sold out everywhere – they’re making big bucks out of the ones they got- but for Php6,500?? No freaking way!!
At least there’s this seller – The Purchaser – that admittedly sells replica’s – for less than Php1,000.00!
