Counterfit purses and luggage in Cozemel
 
I heard this lady say that she was going to Cozemel to get more designer purses and luggage. It seems on her last trip she bought so many that she had to buy luggage to carry them. She was really excited because she said she got them at a great price and wanted to get more.

A fellow cruisemate said that they were probably counterfeit in the first place, but the second fact was that the real designer purses and luggage are kept and sold in Europe and that cheaper versions are sent to US by the designer companies. He said he knew because he is a world traveler and businessman.

I was wondering if anyone knows the true story about these designer purses and luggage in Cozemel are they counterfeit. I know about the counterfeiting which goes on in NewYork and China, etc. but I was also wondering about the shipping of a cheaper product to the US.

Without a doubt any Louis,or Chanel, will be sold in their own boutiques, and not on the street, or in a tee shirt store. The give away is that she bought so many....One would cost more then she paid for her cruise, or more.

You have to be careful, as in some countries, just buying a faux bag, is against the law..Last year in Italy, a cruise passenger was fined, I think 500 euro...it's up to you to take your chances. Shipping what you buy home, could be costly as well.

They're fake
They're Illegal
They're usually a piece of crap that fall apart
They make the people carrying them look really tacky and look like a wanna be.

And I won't even get into the lecture on supporting organized crime. Please don't buy fake bags. Spend you money on a nice leather purse or if you really want a Gucci save and buy one at their semi annual 40% off sale.

I agree, I would want the "real" thing and not a copy cat one. If I can't affored, I do without or save up until I can purchase it...

He created the luggage handbag with added wheels in 1969 and obtained the evident in 1973. Of course, in 1987 it was increased by John Plath, who was a great airline aviator at the time.
