Apr 3 2013 Wordless Wednesday: Genuine Fakes In Bali, you can buy cheap replicas of almost every expensive well-known designer brand. I found the sign in this shop window, very amusing. Share this:SharePinterestLinkedInTwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related
Don’t you just love “Genuine Fakes??” Haha! 🙂
Haha, fun! Margie
Great photo! In downtown LA there’s a neighborhood where every shop used to sell fakes. A friend told me that the cops have started handing out fines to any store selling fakes – I haven’t been there to confirm it though…
Thanks, Rosie. I think many countries have cracked down on people selling fakes, but I believe Thailand is still selling them. Watches are a very popular line. 🙂
people love it … however we saw a genuine fake matisse while we were in sydney, by a famous dutch forger…. surely he was enormously skilled but just liked slipping into other styles … whatever people like can be made by copyists cashing in on popularity … genuine fakes indeed!
Yes, my sister has also tried her hand at painting some of the Old Masters, and they’re pretty convincing. 🙂
what a talented family you are ad!
Someone, somewhere is going to pounce on this and make a line of T-shirts.
They should distribute them free to every politician. I believe this would be an excellent idea. What do you think, dear?
I think it’s a splendid idea. Do you think they would consent to wear them though? 😕
Hmm. If the electorate made it a condition of office until proven otherwise it might make them buck up. Which is a few letters of the alphabet away from what they normally do, I’d say!
Keep well. Love your blog, dear. So pretty.
Love it …. a female way to thinking … but there wasn’t much of designer bags there. Thanks for the big smile.
No, this wasn’t the shop for nice designer bags, but I bought my mom some Ferragamo sunglasses. 😀
love the concept!
Wow, that is hilarious. At least they are up front about it!
Yes, they were nothing if not honest. 🙂
Genuine fakes!!! WHAT?
A real contradiction in terms if ever I saw one. 🙂
It seems at times that “fakes” are the most truthful part of marketing!!!
Yes, you’re right, Rebecca. 🙂
LOL! I feel like I’m wearing a pair of those right now 😉
Love the “genuine fakes!”
Thanks, Hopestar. 🙂 Hugs to you too. Hope your day is a good one. xx
I am sure we can also get the fakes here in SA almost as readily as there
Probably, but they’re not such good copies. 🙂
Just read an interesting study, highlighted in another blog, claiming that people who buy fakes are generally less honest than those who don’t 😕
Now there’s food for thought. 🙂
That is a classic… you should send that in the Getaway’s funny signs.. I reckon you would win something…
Glad you liked it. 🙂 I don’t know how you enter for the Getaway funny signs. I have quite a few.
It is funny, hey? 😀
And who knows why the ZZ Top song “Cheap Sunglasses” is now in my head.
😆 Sorry, Frank.
That’s hilarious! So what are the fake fakes I wonder? The box is labelled “Ray Ban Sunglasses” but when you open it up you find something random like a pack of biscuits and a fridge magnet. 🙂
That’s so funny, Lance. Just imagine that happening.
Well, they’re nothing if not honest 😉
Well that’s true enough. 🙂
Ho, ho – at least he is honest.
Yes, you have to give him credit for his honesty. 🙂
I’ve always loved a genuine fake 😀
I’m sure you have, Gunta. 🙂
@AD, your post make me ..hiks =homesick 😦 Ouwww. Indeed Bali is very famous tourist place. I give you advice, when the next time might want to vacation to Indonesia again, you can visit the beautiful place in this world with beautiful seascape = Karimun Jawa Island, You can search on google map. Nice post @AD
