LOL. They buy it on EBAY because it's too expensive for many to buy directly from Coach or a retailer. I'm trying to understand your logic. LOL The Ebay thing is a joke. I love Ebay but I know it's a place where counterfeiters run rampant and also people looking to sell good acquired in dubious ways. Reality: ) People have less money to buy purses with and 2) if they buy a purse hey have no money left to put in the purse.
