Maybe the purses aren't fakes. Maybe they are real Pradas and Fendis (with a bad attitude ;))...just stolen.

Doing a little more research into this.. There are items that are referred to as "grey items". Grey market items are legitimate manufacturer goods that are sold at lower prices overseas (it's hard to justify $60 an ounce for designer perfume in a country where the average income is 25 cents an hour), purchased overseas and then shipped back into the US in violation of the manufacturers distribution agreement. Some very large US retailers have been hit for this one, including Wal-Mart, but very little seems to come of it.

There are some absolutely amazing counterfits coming out of China right now, mostly because of lax enforcement in that country. Everything from Prada to Philippe Patek. Most US enforcement is at the Federal level. Seeing as how it's a non-violent crime, though, it gets lower priority than many other things.

But these aren't even legit gray market. They are plain old fakes. Fashion design and marketing was my major. These are pure fakes.

I have no problem buying a knock off, but it's not fair to mislead people like that. And I looked it up, it is illegal. Some of them woman there were buying them as gifts for birthdays, college and weddings. Now how do you think they're gonna feel if their loved one trys to send it in for maintence or gets told it's fake? They'll probably be upset.
do you seriously believe that the women buying these purses actually think they're getting a true product for $20? i think you're the one who's mislead. i have been to many knockoff purse party's. i have had one myself. the guy who does the buying goes to china twice a year and buys tons of product. purse party's are well known and everyone knows that these are knockoffs.

seriously? any woman who thinks she's buying a true louis vuitton for $20 has got to be a complete moron. just because the woman may be saying they're genuine doesn't mean that her buyers believe her. if i was on her lawn and she was telling me they were genuine and $20 i'd think she was a nutball and i would buy up 3 or 4 purses and be on my way.

Shes not ligit she 100% fake but claimz they are real. She got busted a few mnths back for selling Coach. She then took them all out of the store and packed them into a trailor and started selling them from her and her sisters places. They kno wat they are doin and think they will get away with it all. They need to be completely shut down. Her name is Connie Koppa and her sister is Cathy Stowe the owner of Hairys Salon in Altoona. And the way I understand it they at times sell them out of the back room to people at Hairys. The prses are fake and so are the people selling them. Just sayin!
