Shopping in the Underground Black Market Purse Shops of NYC

If you know me, you know I love purses - ok, maybe that's an understatement - I LOVE purses! So, ever since we have been living in Boston, I have had people tell me that I have to go buy purses in China Town in NY. They sell lots of great "knock offs". I am not at all a "purse snob". I don't go specifically for brands, I just love a really cute purse.

When we took the boys to NYC this weekend, I just had to go check out the underground purse markets! It was pretty crazy!!! The people that want to sell you purses just come up to everyone and ask if they would like to buy a purse. David told one of them yes, and she asked us to follow her. We followed her pretty deep into China Town and then she went to this very non-discript door and unlocked it. We walked down a very narrow hallway to another door that took us down a very steep flight of stairs, where she unlocked a little room filled with purses. I bargained with her for awhile and ended up with these 3 cute purses!
