Hi Amy, Yes there is some serial numbers inside the bags. I don’t know where to find them. I found this page on The Real Real site that may help you. Also, you can get the bag authenticated (check The PurseForum) and an expert can check it out for you.https://realstyle.therealreal.com/how-to-tell-if-your-goyard-bag-is-real/ Hope this helps! - Natalie

I’m excited to present my “book” project that I have been working on for a few years since 2016. I have been researching STEM and wrote a fun series for young girls (and boys also, of course) centered on STEM adventures. (STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Sometimes it is called STEAM with an added Art element but I think Art already weaves through all of the STEM elements.) This STEM Web Series is great for kids learning how to read in grades 1-3 but this story can also be read aloud to kids as young as 3... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, with a Columbus Day holiday off school, Chloe and I decided to finally take some time to craft together. Her best friend, one of our neighbors was coming over and she loved to craft too. I didn't realize how addictive this project was going to be, not just for the girls but for ME! This is a perfect kids craft to do with kids of all ages, but I especially recommend it for tween girls. It was fast and highly satisfying! We did the project outside on our patio for easy clean up and the girls... Continue reading
