Here's a bag that I have not seen reviewed before posted by Maja (one of the Forum Creators) on RLU for a replica Gucci Indy from Joy of FabAAA. She's so funny - she's always saying she's on a Bag Ban but then ends up buying more every time lol.
Anyway she wasn't happy with her last purchase from Joy and didn't think she'd ever buy from her again but could not resist the sale section. She's a great bargain hunter!
I'm so glad to see that she got everything she hoped for and now feels that Joy is a worthy seller to buy from again. I really feel that every seller has their days of sending not so great merchandise. Most of them purchase from a factory where the products are made by workers who have never seen what an authentic looks like.
At the end of the day they are just trying to meet their quota and get paid. So when a seller gets a hold of a bag that is not up to par they might try to exchange it to avoid customer disappointments but the factories are not always willing to work with the sellers so sometimes they just don't have a choice.
I know this doesn't make it right to stick the buyers with a bad product but I also feel that there are many buyers who are just too picky. Some expect the replicas to be able to do something even the authentic doesn't do so in those cases I don't take the reviews seriously because it is unrealistic expectations and just not fair to the sellers to be negatively reviewed over a flaw that is also occurring in the Authentic product itself.
Anyway, enough of my babbling. Here is Maja's review:
Got it from Joy's sale section for $100 & it basically redeemed Joy!!
Seriously, I was not going to buy from her any longer I had told
myself and after getting this amazing bag I decided, no more LV canvas
from her but her leather bags is a whole different story. To make it
short and sweet: this is the BEST bag I've gotten from her! It's
flawless and everything looks on point. I've carried it 4 times after
getting it a few days ago already & it's gotten a lot of
compliments. Yes it's small but I've only taken it out as a going out
bag, not a daily errands bag. The leather is thick & smells
amazing. Hardware good. LOVE IT... no other words.
TASSLES ARE NOW STRAIGHT WITH USAGE. These pics are when I took it out of the box.
