Can anyone recommend a store on stx for Coach handbags?
i don't believe there is one. the closet coach store would be on stt in yacht haven grande. there is also a very large coach factory outlet in old san juan.
are they available at violets?
Just be careful, the store has to be authorized to sell Coach and any other designer bag.
If they are not, it's probably a knock-off.
I don't know about STX, but on STT, Vendor's Plaza/Market has all the knock-off designer bags, scarves, sunglasses, etc. you want for cheap and that is quality you are paying for.
If you want a Authentic Coach handbag, Yacht Haven Grande has a small store like lily1025 said, and you are paying for a designer bag. $$$
Best place to get Coach is old san juan in puerto rico. There's a lovely outlet, I believe it's on something like Fortenlaza st, next to El Convento. Much cheaper then Stt. Even Macy's at Plaza's las Americas will be cheaper! 🙂 There is no legit place on St Croix. But I love San Juan so much it's always a pleasure going there.
Is violets on stx? If so, where is it located?
Violets does not have them anymore. And I always heard the same that when they did have them several years ago they were knock offs, Don't know if it's true. They care a few dooney and burkes, guess and other minor brands. But they are from several seasons ago. They are across from Baci. Violets is the only place on stx that I know of to get stuff like clinque, clarin, lancome, dior makeup, but there stock is usually always low. If you like something buy all of it. They always say they are getting a shipment soon but it's rarely true!
The Pirate's Chest on STT (340) 774-5279 has some incredible knock-offs for only $50 and $65...can't tell the difference between the real ones...if you want one, call the store and they'll e-mail you pics and, if you like them, they'll mail 'em to you....
Are the prices fixed at Pirete's Chest?
Because you can negotiate prices at Vendor's Plaza. Especially now with the economy & especially if you are buying more than one item. A knock-off bag and wallet to match or any other item you purchase from the same vendor. You can get a good deal if you know how to haggle.
I get good deals at the jewelry stores because I know their mark-up price. Cash is better, so the jewelry store doesn't pay a fee for using a credit card. If they don't give the price I have in mind or at least close. I start to walk out and they more than likely call me back in to make a deal (just happened to me a couple weeks ago-called me back to make a deal which I was happy with). With this economy and if it is a slow day, you are most likely to get better deals 🙂
PS: Having friends that work in the business is a great help too
You can always haggle at the Pirate's Chest...
There's a guy with a pop up booth set up on the street corner outside of the Purple Papaya. He was there for Jump-Up and later in the week when we were in town. He's got "Coach" handbags among others.
He's there more often then not. I would rather have a cute no name purse then a knock off. The knock offs always look fake and cheap except maybe to men. 🙂
The customers at the Pirate's Chest say they are quite good....as evidenced by their purchases....I know nothing of these things, but, if the public likes 'em, they must be OK...
