9. Guangzhou Replica Lady’s Handbags Market
Baiyun world leather trading Center （白云世界皮具精品展贸中心)
Tips: Google and all its affiliate pages and apps are blocked in China, which means that when you’re in China and use regular WiFi or data, you cannot access any data from Google, including Google Maps. The easiest way is to purchase international roaming on your existing mobile plan. It works well but is usually expensive. More solutions are here.
No matter you are a tourist or buyer, this is one of the must-go places. One primary reason is that this market offers replica lady’s handbags, whose quality is nearly the same as the origin.
But now, if you want to buy replica bags in the market, it is not as easy as before, since the monitoring is strict. You will need to discuss the details with the shopkeeper, and confirm with them you need the logo for the brand, then you will need to pay the deposit of full payment for them to prepare the cargo for you.
If the logo is easy to apply, then before 7:00 pm on the same day (the market shuts down at 7:00 pm) you can collect the bag from the market. But if the logo needs time to fix onto the bag, it may require 1-2 days to finish.
PRA*A handbags, for example, you can only see the replica bags without logo in the market. If the logo is not difficult to put on the bag, then you can get your goods the same day. However, if adding a logo requires some complicated craft, such as Mosaic, it will take 1-2 days.
SPECIAL NOTE: There are street sales that are saying they get the replica bags and want to bring you to other buildings for checking, our suggestion is that to do business with the shops inside the market only, do not follow those guys.
You may think that it could be cheaper from these street sales, but it is also risky that they offer limited quality warranty for the products. As at least, the shops inside the market are doing business with a qualification license. And if you have any problem with the bag, bring them back to the shop with the receipt, and they will find a solution for you quickly.
10. Guangzhou Second-hand Electronics Market
