Best Place to Bag a Designer Impostor (2008)

Gift Show

In a world full of fake boobs, bottle blonds, and Lee press-on nails, it's hard to tell an impostor from the real thing. And when it comes to handbags, that's a really good thing, especially for just-scraping-by girls like myself, who as Americans should have equal access to Gucci, Prada, and Ferragamo. The ubiquitously named GIFT SHOW is barely noticeable along designer-impostor-label-ridden Canal Street, so take your time. Their goodies are a little more expensive then those other imitations, but it's so worth the price for a Louis Vuitton-Stephen Sprouse trashed tote that you won't see hanging on a nail outside with 20 others like it.
