Leather copy bags

Hi, did I see a post somewhere about being able to get good quality leather "copy" handbags somewhere, but that you had to ask about them as they weren't in the front of the shop but in the back?? Can anyone enlighten me if this is true and if so, which shops and where. thanks

I got a great copied Mark Jacobs leather handbag from Patong on the main beach front. I didnt see that many else where.

Always ask if they have any other stock than what is out on display, you will soon learn that most of the stuff out the front is cheap tat & that the "backroom stock" is of much better quality.

Most places have a back room with extra stock in it. If you have a certain design you want, know how recently it was released. I had many shop owners claiming that the bags were 'new designs' when they had been released for 4 years.

Also point out any imperfections in the bag and use that for your advantage.

Have a great time.
