I even have to say it? Don't fall for web sites that claim they
have "made a deal with top designers to sell their factory
seconds and floor models." It is just not that easy. They

some designers do have factory outlets and some sell at wholesale. LOUIS
VUITTON IS NOT ONE OF THEM! They do not sell floor models
at discounted prices. They only take returns within 14 days if
they are in pristine, unused condition and sell them at FULL PRICE.
They destroy merchandise that is unusable or unsold once that season
is over. That holds true for most top designers.
at discounted prices, come on, you don't really expect to buy a
$1500 bag for $259, do you?
