I have decided to ONLY highlight high value fakes from now on in the trash and treasure section.  There are way too many sellers of fake items to keep covering all of their listings and the headaches I receive from these sellers is not worth the effort. I will still keep adding everything sold by these sellers to our private archive for future use. Remember BUYER BEWARE & LUCKY BUYING 😉
