I just bought a genuine mulberry east west bayswater bag. i bought it off ebay for £400, it was brand new with all tags etc intact. The seller even gave me the receipt.
As i dont own a bag like this..i am just wondering if the price i paid seems reasonable? How much are they usually for?
I am looking online but cant seem to find a price for it (or maybe im looking in the wrong places) can someone let me know if ive been ripped off or not...please!

I am pretty sure that the east west bays was discontinued a short while back. The best thing to do is ring and enquire at an outlet

This is a respected bag resellers site: naughtipidginsnest and she has a couple up for £425 so I think the price you've paid is probably fair.

If you haven't already it might be worth getting your bag authenticated on the purse forum as obviously it would be a lot to pay for a fake.

The receipt states it was bought from Shepton Mallet Outlet Store in April 2013. The price was £486 plus VAT. They needed the money so sold it for £400 on ebay
What got me concerned was that i was the only bidder.
Also i wasnt sure why the bag didnt come with the 'key & padlock' but looking online is said that the 'Outlet' bags dont usually come with the key and padlock.

Thank you so much...good to know that i paid a fair price. Was beginning to think that the receipt didnt belong to that bag and the bag was a fake.

Anyone know how to tell a fake mulberry bayswater?!

Has it got a round metal tag thing inside there should be a serial number on the back of that

The bags that dont come with a key and cloche are usually called special purchase or some such.Why nit upload some photos?

Generally east west bayswaters don't come with the cloche and key. What kind of leather is it? If it is one of the classics (oak, black, or brown) then that is a good price. The prices of the seasonable colours and outlet specials are more variable.

Oh and do you have any leather protector? If it is a light colour or delicate leather it is essential to put water protector on it. I put the protector on all my bags as it means the rain runs off rather than soaking in.

Thats the bag...

That doesn't look like an east west bays. It looks more like a ledbury.

Vibbe Sat 20-Jul-13 16:27:27

Actually, it also looks like a normal Bays. But the dimensions would not be right for it to be an east west - east west is longer.

How big is the bag?

znisa123 Sat 20-Jul-13 16:33:22

Really? shows how much i know about bags...

Vibbe Sat 20-Jul-13 16:40:59

Size-wise it's looking more like a bayswater.

I personally have a bad feeling about this one, so I think you should get it authenticated on the purseforum (here: forum.purseblog.com/mulberry/). There's an authentication thread where you can post pictures and details - just make sure you provide all of the info they ask for. They are really good at that.

It would be a shame paying that amount of money for a fake bag.

I'm pretty decent at spotting Mulberry fakes.

Firstly, that isn't an East West Bayswater, so the receipt you've been given comes from some other bag. Not good.

Can you post a close up photo of the Mulberry tree fob? There should be a number on it. Also, can you find a "Made In" label stitched onto one of the inside seams? Post a photo of that as well.

Meant to say the REVERSE side of the Mulberry fob.

I would speak to Mulberry customer services about this bag you purchased and get them to verify it as genuine or confirm that it is a counterfeit item.

I would personally have not bought any such item from Ebay as they cannot verify that such high value items are actually authentic.

Their number is 01761 234 273

Iirc Mulberry do not authenticate bags bought from eBay.

I think it looks like an outlet special bayswater (bags made specifically to sell at outlets, they generally don't have the padlock/cloche), but would agree to get it checked on the purse forum.

Mulberry basically state that the only way to avoid counterfeit items is to buy from authorised Mulberry stores or recognised stockists.

I hope its not the case but I have a nasty feeling you've been sold a counterfeit item.

DancingRoundTheKitchen Sat 20-Jul-13 16:58:36

Does the receipt say East West Bayswater? - if it does then that is a bit dodgy as it is absolutely not an East West.

znisa123 Sat 20-Jul-13 16:59:23

purse forum link doesnt work

Yes squalor, you're right but surely they would want to see the bag anyway?.

Can aimeone post the ops link to the item so that I can just click on it?
