Get the bag authenticated directly at a boutique

Another excellent way to have a second handbag authenticated is to visit the boutique and request for authentication assistance. Not all boutiques offer this service, so you may need to look around for one that accommodates authentication.

Many people feel confident in getting their bag authenticated directly at a boutique because there is an impression that you can rely on the boutique’s staff expertise to spot a fake. Overall, it matters not which method you choose as long as you receive the right verdict for the product you bought.
