WE LIKE TO TEACH USING PICTURES! SO, LET'S GO! (Updated 6/11/24)

Wolff's flea Market conducts ongoing research on trending counterfeits and intellectual property scenarios. Then we try our best to share information with you. We aren't lawyers and this is not legal advice. We do not represent any brands, and strive to understand the complexities of counterfeits which, according to some estimates account for over 3% of all world trade! China leads the world in counterfeit production. Images shown are used for purposes of education & discussion. We do not allow counterfeit products at our markets. Parameters and restricted brands may change at any time. Research is ongoing.
