Top Ten Signs that a Louis Vuitton or Chanel Handbag is Authentic

Everyone here at LuxeDH is a handbag lover, so we want are loyal customers and fans to be well educated on what to look for when shopping for a genuine, gently used Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Prada, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, Dior or Fendi bag. Or all of those authentic handbags at once!

There are some basic warning signs that all buyers of authentic handbags should know. If you see a Chanel listed for $ 200, then they should stay away! Photographs of each bag should also be unique.
