Knock-Offs or Stolen ...Hmmm

Mexican street vendors are know for their tons of "knock-off" imitation merchandise but how do you know ...

A friend bought a Michael Kors purse in Ensenada believing it to be a very very good knock-off...Upon returning home to the US, she was in a Michael Kors store and inquired about the quality of her bag.  They confirmed it was the real deal...

We still have a good laugh about the probably "stolen" handbag she bought in Mexico.

I was told in Mexico they have Imitations and Genuine Imitation. a buddy of mine spent $300 on a good fake Rolex Presidential about 10 years ago, it still keeps perfect time.

I don't buy knock offs as they can be a problem coming back into the country.

I once bought a pair of "OAKYS" in battery park in NYC.. but never anything on a cruise...
