TikToker Megan (@megzzthestallion) stumbled upon the “find of her life” when she noticed a black bag among discounted items.

She only paid $20 for the purse, but she suspected it could be worth much more based on the soft feel and the Louis Vuitton logo.

She suspected the bag was worth $3,200 if it was real.

A few months later, Megan received a package from Louis Vuitton, and it turned out that the purse wasn’t a dupe.
