My Mother's Wisdom



I was strolling through town one day.
You know, just looking around, enjoying the walk.

Then, I found this in a store window.

Birkin??

Just a look-alike.

A few days later, I spotted this at some other store.

Another Birkin-wanna-be.

The black one appears better made than the white one.
And thus it costs more.
But of course, neither bears the stamp "Hermès",
and the hardware isn't the same as the real deal.
Of course.

But if the black one was seen out in town,
at a quick glance,
one might not know of its authenticity.

Ever since my counterfeit encounters,
I've become skeptical of the Birkins around.

Just today in Manor, I saw a lady carrying a fake.
It was missing the stamp.

I understand the appeal of it.
Buying something that's similar for 1/20 of the price
seems like a great bargain.

But my mother taught me this when I was little;

"Don't ever carry even one single counterfeit product,"

she said,

"even if it's just one, when people find out it's fake,
then they'll assume everything you own is fake, too.

"If people think you're all lies, your integrity is in question."


Plus, in France,
(and Italy, I think. I don't know about in Switzerland)
possession of a counterfeit product is a punishable crime004.gif

She's wise. She's right.
But, she does say an awful lot of crazy things in between...

Like mother, like son003.gif
