For your peace of mind ... if you’re going to invest hundreds of dollars in designer handbags or clothing, then it’s worth the small investment to obtain proof of authenticity.

Many companies have policies in place which prohibit employees from authenticating items or giving you proof-of-authenticity or non-authenticity.  One of these companies is Dooney & Bourke.  Their corporate policy does not allow store clerks to authenticate your items.  The only way to obtain authentication from Dooney & Bourke is to send your handbag directly to their headquarters in Norwalk, CT.  In addition to the hassle of packaging and spending money for insured mail, this process is time consuming and it can take weeks before you receive a response.

I realize that during this time of economic turmoil it’s easy for some to justify purchasing a replica designer item at a fraction of the cost of the original.  However, counterfeiting is a multibillion dollar industry and it ultimately benefits organized crime, terrorists, and other unscrupulous groups.   It is our duty as law abiding citizens to make sure we are not contributing to the success of organizations that compromise intellectual property rights.

I don’t think any of us can justify spending hundreds of dollars on knockoffs.  I know that when I purchase a designer item online, I want to know that I have indeed purchased an authentic item.  Don’t be fooled … put your mind at ease and let Coal Creek Auctions authenticate it for you.

Coal Creek Auctions specializes in the authentication of designer items.  We can provide authentication services for Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Hermes, Chloe, Gucci, Chanel, Dooney & Bourke, Coach, 7 For All Mankind, True Religion, Prada, and many more.
