Misleading Merchant

Buying designer bags can always be looked at from different angles. On the one hand, certain people fancy bags and can spend so much on one or two. This action satisfies a higher form of need. On the other hand, people buy high-end bags as an investment. In fact, several business articles in international newspapers have reported that high-end bags are good investments.

Local celebrities are no different when it comes to purchasing high-end brands. Owning a branded bag can elevate one’s status and owners can even have bragging rights for purchasing unique and expensive bags. Female Celebrity (FC) was among those people who bought designer bags with their hard-earned money. At that time, FC had many projects and endorsements, which enabled her to buy bags that she fancied. However, months have passed since FC was given an income-sustaining project. Now, she needed to increase her personal funds to support her lifestyle and family. She decided to dispose a few of her designer bags. She approached her closest friends and gave them first choices. Subsequently, she requested her buyers not to tell others from whom they had bought the stuff. The request would save FC from embarrassment, as other people might poke fun about her lack of finances.

One of FC’s buyers was Younger Star (YS), who obviously has more money these days than FC. FC convinced YS to buy a Branded Bag (BB) for half the six-digit price she paid for it. Naive and trusting, YS bought BB at the agreed price. Later on, YS was with A Stylist (AS), who immediately noticed BB. AS said to YS that she ought to return BB, as it was not an original, but a well-made replica. YS was shocked that FC could fool her. Instead of making a scene with FC, YS opted to keep quiet, as things were bound to be awkward if she confronts FC about BB. When FC again approached YS for another product, YS said she was not interested and gave as an excuse that she was saving her money for a family home.

Well, given the predicament, YS could not help but wonder if FC had been duped into buying replicas being passed as originals or if FC knows her bags are replicas and yet continues to market them as originals.

  4. If its your goal to buy a designer bag better buy it sa store mismo kysa sa may bebenta ng second Hand. Bago pa and fresh and nakikita mo pa. Iba parin talaga pag ikaw mismo bumili harapan you know Face to Face with the seller ng store may resibo pa. Why buy a second hand If you Can Afford to buy a brand new diba? Specially pag first time mo at pinag ipunan mo.

  12. pag bumili ng second hand bag, hingin ang original na resibo. huwag basta basta bumili na wala, kasi delikado lalo na pag hindi ka familiar kung paano i-check ang authenticity ng bag.
