Frequently Asked Questions
What is Laura's Little Boutique?
Laura's Little Boutique is a privately owned online store selling bags, backpacks and accessories. We started in 2013 as a Ju-Ju-Be retailer. We grew to be the largest Ju-Ju-Be retailer outside United States and one of the largest in United States. Unfortunately due ever increasing quality and supply issues, along with some large financial issues with Ju-Ju-Be, in spring 2019 we made the tough decision to drop Ju-Ju-Be from our selection. We have since introduced several new, large brands and new product areas to our selection and will continue to grow also in the future.
Laura's Little Boutique USA online store is operated by Laura's Little Boutique USA Corporation, a private company registered in Delaware, United States. Our European operation is managed by our sister company, Laura's Little Boutique Europe Ltd. Both companies are owned by same private owners.

Are the bags you sell replicas?
No, abslolutely NOT. We sell only genuine items. We only purchase goods directly from manufacturers or from few selected, tightly screened distributors with impeccable reputation and history. All our big brands like, Armani, Coach, Furla, Love Moschino, Michael Kors, Versace Jeand and all sunglasses come from an very big, authorized Italian distributor, being in business since 2006. They purchase directly from manufacturers and every item is double checked to make sure they are all genuine items. All our tokidoki items are bought from them and come directly from tokidoki's own warehouse in Los Angeles. Same goes to all other items we purchase.
Are the items you sell new?
Yes, of course, we don't sell used items. In the very rare case we receive an customer return, we will check the item to be in exactly same condition it came from factory. If it is as new, it will be sold again, if it has been used or has any faults, we will never sell it as new and at full price.

Yes we do. All items have a minimum of 90 days warranty for all factory defects. Some items have longer warranty, which is mentioned in the item description. In case of a warranty issue, we take care of the return shipment and ship the replacement for free.
