I took a look at the Celine bags sold on eBay right now and I have to say I’ve come across a huge number of replicas! I don’t want to discourage you, I just want to make it easier for you to spot them.
Celine Knockoff Bag Sold on eBay – Signs
I tried to make my how to tell if Celine bag is authentic guides as detailedas I could. But I know that some of you still feel insecure even after checking the guides. But in that case the price should get you thinking. It’s unlikely for a real Celine bag to be sold for less than $1,000 even if it’s used. The only exception is if the bag is very old or heavily used. So the price should be a telltale sign as well.
You should also take advantage of the fact that there are plenty of photos of Celine bags online given their popularity. Look for that specific model you’re interested in and see if you can find a photo on any site. If you can find only photos of replica bags online, then chances are that specific bag never existed in authentic version. Here’s an example:
The most upsetting thing about this is that some of the Celine replica bags sold here look worse than your regular Celine bag replica but they’re 2 or 3 times more expensive. Paying $800 or less for a Celine bag may sound like an exciting thought, but don’t be quick to buy it if you want don’t to realize it was actually a Celine knockoff bag when it’s already too late.
Most importantly, if you don’t want to buy a Celine knockoff bag, make sure you check all the details I told you about. I thought it would be interesting to show you that some replica Celine bags can actually be spotted as faked by looking and just one photo. Disclaimer: all the photos you’ll find in this post were taken from eBay. So you can only imagine just how many Celine knockoff bags are there! I know, it’s scary!
And do you know what is the saddest part about this? Most of these sellers have 100% positive feedback. This means that the feedback is either fake or that the people they’ve previously tricked weren’t able to tell they bought a Celine knockoff bag.
Simple rule about the lining: a Celine Mini Luggage bag in smooth leather will always have smooth leather lining. For me it was enough to look at the photo above to tell it was a Celine knockoff bag. But then you can also notice that the stamp is smudgy or that the zipper pull is too wide and rounded. This bag is being sold for $850.00.
If all replica bags online were advertised as such, everything would be so much easier. But unfortunately it doesn’t work that way, so you either learn to protect yourself or expose yourself to scammers. So here are some of the most common flaws a Celine knockoff bag will have. This should make it easier for you to tell fakes when you see them.
Sometimes it’s the logo, other times it’s the lining, the shape of the handle holders or even the base studs. And other times it’s all these combined if it’s a really bad replica. Just don’t get carried away by the fact that one of these is how it should, check the rest too. For example, a replica Celine bag can have a perfect logo stamp but maybe the bottom studs are crooked. You get the point.
