Are Kate Spade Bag's Fakes *Alot*?

I would really like a Kate Spade bag cos they're different (well, not common over here in Britain )

I've seen loads on eBay I like, but wanted to know if I need to be careful, are they faked?

Seen some on eBay UK, but they don't have much and are going for super cheap! I love the little black and white Giraffe one!

Yes, unfortunately, they are faked a lot. Sadly, most of the fakes are HEINOUS too. I can authenticate with absolute certainty any bag you are interested in. I own around 40 pieces of Kate Spade so that's hands down my area of expertise. ;)

Run a search in this section for "kate spade" and see the thread I started with my collection picture of all my babies. Check out the purse in the top row- is that the "black and white giraffe one" that you were talking about being interested in? That particular line has been faked a lot so you really have to scrutinize the pictures provided.

Oooh, would you mind if I bothered you with an authenticity check?

Yeah, the one you have is the one I'm in love with, I *think*, tho yours looks bigger than the one I have been watching on eBay, tho I suppose it's hard to tell from pics! Here's the link, price seems wayyyyy too cheap! I wouldn't know a fake one at all!

What price do you think a genuine one would go for?

Oops, sorry I missed that!!! I was away at a wedding for the past 2 days.

Yes, that was a real one. Mini Sam (sometimes called "small tote" as well), silk faille giraffe line. Always will have a satin hot pink interior and a "made in Italy" label.

The one I have is from the faux fur giraffe line. The difference from the one you showed me is this line has a "furry" fabric, red interior and black leather straps. They were all made in the USA so they will have the little USA flag tag in the interior.

The price the auction ended at was right in line with what those purses have been going for- the mini sam was a bit of a less popular style also though. But you've described yourself as pretty petite so it might work very well for you actually. I've seen the faux fur giraffe ones go for over $100 USD depending on the style but I see plenty ending under $50.

I think both lines are gorgeous. The giraffe one I have is a great winter bag but the silk faille giraffe line is really stunning though and loolks all year round. I've always wanted to add one to my collection.

I can't believe that bag was real, it went for sooooooooo low!

Oh well, I suppose it was better that I didn't bid incase it was fake, as I have no clue about these bags!

Thanks for all the info tho! I think I'll watch a couple of these auctions, and have a look around for more! But I'll prob be back and bugging you for authenticity checks, sorry! Thanks so much again!

P.S I think I like the lil, non furry Mini Sam better so perhaps I could find another one at a great price, here's hoping!

I'll try and keep an eye out one.

Maybe I can help you find something else too? What are you looking for exactly? Only animal print? Only small totes? Or are you open to other sizes and patterns?

Oooh don't tempt me lol! She has a lot of fabulous bags! Could you suggest any reasonably priced leather Kate Spades?

I actually don't have a good leather bag, all my designer bags are canvas! And if I were to buy a leather Gucci or L.V... well, ok, I wouldn't cos I just plain couldn't afford that!

I kinda prefer neutral coloured bags, but I do however love green Metallic's nice too! And of course, you gotta love that animal print!

Sorry, I'm going on and on here lol, I'm off to eBay to have a peek!

1. Real. Corners look good too. I have this in a hobo and I love it. Very sophisticated bag. Looks GREAT in the winter with a long black coat and dress pants or jeans.
2. Real. But the leather on these bags is very stiff.
3. Real but I wouldn't recommend because of the stains. Those won't come out. That bag is also rather large and wasn't a popular style because of its large, long shape. You can find a MUCH better bag than this one.

Thanks so much for all that!

I really love the Mini Sams, they're classic and would go with loads.

Damn, again, I missed that first one I posted, (the huge leopard one) in case it wasn't real!

I keep looking at animal print ones tho, seem to like them the most, could I be a terrible pain in the ass and ask you what you think of this? Will the lining always be pink or red for the animal print ones, or was it just the faille Giraffe? This lining is black, hmmm...

Do you know of any authentic eBay shops that stock Kate Spade? Or are the best finds usually just people who happen to put up their own bags for sale, do you think?

EDIT: Awww, lot of people don't ship to UK, this seller included

That one is fake, sorry.

Unfortunately, there are many KS animal prints out there and many varying linings for those prints so no, you can say that ALL KS animal print has a pink/red lining.

You just have to learn all the lines, lol.

But yes, all bags in the silk faille giraffe line have hot pink interiors and made in Italy labels. I could go on and on through each line but that would take a long time ;)

I don't know particular ebay shops that sell authentic KS. The vast majority are personal collection resells and that's where you get the best deals IMO.

If you really like animal prints I suggest you go on the hunt for this purse: Kate Spade Zebretta Amanda. It took me nearly 2 years of searching ebay to find it but it is soooo worth it. By far the most gorgeous animal print purse she EVER made. You can see it in my collection picture near the front. It's brown/white zebra pony hair body with a brown leather strap, is the perfect size and has hot pink suede lining
