Default coach purses

Where can I get a "real" Coach purse in Nassau, St. Thomas or St. Marteen? Is the price any better than at home?? I have one now and would like to add to my collection. I had a friend bring one home from St. Thomas a couple of years ago and she swore it was real...it wasn't, she got scammed.

Not sure. Have been to those ports and do not recall seeing any Coach store.

However, try googling it.

We stop in San Juan in February and have found there is a Coach store near the port there.

Am trying to find out about this spot. Can anyone help with San Juan as well as St. Thomas and St. Marteen.

Thanks and safe sailing.

I read someone bought a coach purse at the staw market in Nassau for $35 and another at $40 for the same purse, no idea how large.

So, he bought a knock off, not a real coach purse?

I would imagine that it was a knock-off.

There is a Coach store in Nassau not to far from the port.

I live about 15 minutes from the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon, CA. I have two medium leather purses from Coach ($50 and $80) and recently purchased a large leather purse from Michael Kors ($54). You should check out the DHPO's website to see if there's a store near your area. Good luck. Dana

I too saw "knock off" Coach purses at a vendor not far from the ship in San Juan, but they did, in fact tell you that they were fake! (looked GREAT) I'd be really careful unless you buy them from a Coach Store.

Here's the store information I copied from coach.com:

Coach Stores in The Bahamas


JOHN BULL BAY STREET
303 BAY STREET
NASSAU
242-326-0557
Store Hours: VARIED

I would definitely stay away from counterfeit handbags, as they are made illegally. Google "counterfeit handbags" and find countless articles about it.

I think its a case of buyer beware when it comes to knock offs, especially while on vacation. Recently I found some Coach purses 25% off at Macy's, so you may want to shop around home first, so you can compare when you are traveling.

I don't know how the prices are sorry.
Every time I go to Nassau, I just ride past it on my way to the beach.

Thanks for all the help everyone, I know the prices of the real purses here in Florida so I will see if the coach store in Nassau is any better and if not I will buy one at home. I don't want a knock off since I already have a real one. They really are worth the money.
