Ugg slippers
« on: May 18, 2014, 16:59:25 PM »
Hi
Last year I purchased some good quality fake mule Ugg slippers off a young man on the Sunday market.
Does anyone know if he sells them on the Tuesday market?

Fake Ugg boots and shoes are made in China by skinning raccoon dogs alive.

Good job Jenny1 only wants to buy the fake one's isn't it   ;)
This might be a long shot but perhaps the fakes are made in Turkey.

No raccoon dogs were harmed in the posting of this comment.

The fakes are not - Jenny1's post was about fakes so why put a link up to the real boots

I did mean the fakes and of course, if you read the story you will see it's the fakes.  There was a piece about this on T.V. they exported from China all around the world even to the U.K.

If anyone actually replies to Jenny1's original question of where to find the man selling the fake Uggs, please keep me informed. There is definitely NO real fur on my fake slippers, which I have been really pleased with so far) however, I have obviously been ripped off and shall go and slap him with my fake Uggs when I find him   ;)

Yes they are on the Tuesday Market.  Coming from the fruit and veg he is the very last stall on that side where they sell  mainly shoes and household items.
