Venice and Fake Bags

Beware people! If you buy a counterfeit (fake) purse- handbag in Venice- you can be issued a FINE. They are trying to control this aspect of selling fakes and are very strict. Besides, it is poorly made and will most likely fall aprt in one week!! Go to chinatown-- they make them better there! lol

They are on every street corner in Rome and in Florence and on every Italian beach. Sophie is right..not just in Venice.

Faux bags are faux bags. Be it on the street in Venice or on the street in New York's Chinatown. If you are so against the selling of faux bags then don't buy them either place!
