I have a Kate spade bag that I purchased in early 90’s, possibly 93-95. If I remember correctly I purchased it at Nordstrom in Santa Barbara. I think it’s the “Sam” bag, but I’m leather. I’ve searched all over the internet & can’t find another like it! I had put it up for auction, but eBay took it down because they said it violated the authenticity rule. I know for sure it’s authentic since I purchased it at Nordstrom. I can’t find any other serial tags that look like mine though. If you’ve ever seen one of the bags or serial tags like mine, could you please let me know.
     
  3. I've been a lurker here for quite awhile but thihs is my first day to register / post. I'm hoping someone can help me out. I got this KS Sam from my husband as a surprise after being so down this week. I had a navy KS Sam that I bought from Saks in '98 or '99, but I sold it on eBay and bought a new KS diaper bag backpack in 2004. (Still kicking myself for that one - it was an amazing color but I wouldn't be able to carry regular bags again for years.)

    I wouldn't worry about the authenticity on this red Sam so much if the "Made in China" tag was different. The KS tags match my backpack inside and out, but the "Made in China" label is completely different. On the backpack, the words are on one side of a square tag, and the other side is blank. Since I bought (my original Sam and) backpack in person I know they are authentic. But I cannot find another "Made in China" tag like this one on the internet - I've been looking around for 2 days and finally decided to just post photos of my bag and see if anyone can give me the final verdict. Thank you SO MUCH for your time and help!

  13. Hi ladies! I'm admittedly new to Kate Spade purses and wallets, and didn't even realise she was one of the counterfeited designers. I bought a wallet on eBay recently and thought nothing of it until I was sitting in the back of a cab today looking at the front logo. The gold metal spade doesn't seem to be centered with the rest of the stamping. The spade should be directly centered above the 's' but it's slight off to the right.

    I'm confused - the leather looks, smells and feels like real leather. The quality feels great, and the things I looked for after researching (metallic thread on the inside numbered tag etc) seem real. Is it possible the logo was just punched in a little off and is still the real deal? I can definitely give more pictures if needed. It was sold as the Eden Lacey wallet.

    Thank you! xx
