Hi Ladies-

I apologize if this question is off-topic, but I couldn/'t find a board that seemed right to post this on :)

Does anybody konw of a good website for designer knock-offs? I'm mainly looking for handbags...Prada, Kate Spade, etc.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Orca.

I know there are many sites out there that sell imitations.

Plan on coming to NYC anytime soon? If so, go to Canal Street. You can get ANYTHING (tshirts, bags, ghetto gold, silver jewelry, great Chinese dumplings, fireworks-that's a BIG deal here, awesome Italian food).

As for buying them online, my thing is buyer beware. I would check out ebay though. The reason I say to be careful is bc you can't see the actual work. A lot of fakes don't have a good lining, poor stitching, flimsy material. You may spend 50-100 on a fake & it breaks in a month. Whereas you could have saved that money towards a real Coach bag.

Year ago I use to buy fake Louies (Vuitton) from Canal. They would break after using them for like 2 months.

I don't what area you live in, but consignment shops may also have the real deal. Rich people get rid of the craziest things. My father is a doorman in one of those ugly hi rise east side buildings. We've gotten furniture (almost brand new), electronics..... So if you live near a hoity part of town see if there are consignment shops around. And again if you ever come to this God foresaken city, there are a few here too.
