Knock off shopping?
Going to spend just 1 day shopping in NYC- probably around 5th ave, apparently large H&M there - are there knock-offs anywhere around there - maybe some street vendors selling knock off purses, watches etc.?
I don''t want to spend the day on the subway going from place to place - want to stay in basically one area.
Thanks so much.

Scroll down to the thread about shopping for purses in NYC..

Forget 5th Ave. Unless you are looking for designer. Hit Soho. There is an H&M on Broadway along with a range of stores. Head south on B'way to Canal Street where you will find knock-off heaven!

It's not knock-offs, but Century 21 on Trinity Pl downtown has good prices on the real thing.

The above posts are correct and the best knock-off items are on Canal St. However, if you must stay near 5th Avenue area, you won't have a problem buying fake purses, watches, sunglasses, etc. I work in the area and see these guys every day every where!

Hi llowe.Ooh I'm in NYC...I know I am not answering your question but.....there is a website called out their ladies handbags..they have quite a few designer handbags...the real thing and deeply discounted prices..they also have some no name ones too. Also they have some sunglasses as well. Just thought I'd throw in this suggestion..
