Caannie's "About Me" &
"Searching for Louis Vuitton" Information Page
* * * Welcome * * *
My name is Carol and I have been buying and selling items on Ebay under the name of caannie since 1999.
I currently have over 1500 positive feedback remarks, many of which are from buyers of my authentic Louis
Vuitton items. I sold "Searching for Louis: How Not to get Ripped Off on Ebay" on Ebay for several years. Over
700 people purchased my guide and left positive feedback. I published this guide at one time because it supplied
information to consumers that was generally lacking on Ebay. I have long since discontinued the sale of my guide
as there are now many excellent free guides available from Ebay. I am the author and sole owner of this guide.
I am the site owner of The Louis Vuitton Information Resource Center
I am also a member of the Authentic Louis Vuitton Universe, FLALV and The Purse Forum.
Please visit my site for more information about my guide, ALVU, my favorite authentic Louis
Vuitton sellers on Ebay, and the latest pictures of my Louis Vuitton collection!

* * * Searching for Louis Vuitton * * *
While looking for authentic Louis Vuitton merchandise on Ebay I found my share of fakes. I decided
it would be fun and interesting to write a book (I am a writer by profession) about how to avoid buying
fake LV items on Ebay. "Searching for Louis: How not to get ripped-off Ebay" was initially a 14-page email
help guide, offered for sale on Ebay for only $2. In its first month on Ebay it sold over 70 copies. My Buying
Guide eventually grew to 52 pages, and has a registered copyright through the US Copyright Office.
I have had the joy of meeting a lot of nice people on Ebay and hopefully have helped many avoid buying
fake LV merchanise. Many fakes sold on Ebay are advertised as authentic, so please shop cautiously.
Before spending a lot of money, do a little research.
Searching for Louis Buying Guide
The White Murakami multicolor wallet in the picture above is a FAKE. Do you know why?
(1) The color scheme is all wrong. Authentic LV Murakami Multicolor pieces have 33 colors in their canvas.
(2) The LV symbols are too big and there are too few of them. There should be four on a wallet of this size.
(3) LV does not make a multicolor wallet in this style. LV makes a multicolor agenda, but it has leather trim.
(4) There are little black dots (mistakes) on the front of the wallet on a couple of the symbols. An Authentic
Louis Vuitton item would never have a flaw in its monogram canvas like those two black marks.
