U.S. Customs and Border Protection stomped out some fashion grinches earlier this month when they found $450,000 worth of counterfeit goods coming through John F. Kennedy International Airport's mail center earlier this month, WWD reports. Part of the aptly named "Operation Bad Gifts", the products they found included sneakers, handbags, watches and sunglasses bearing labels like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Michael Kors, Chanel, and Coach. Here's hoping that Santa doesn't deliver any fakes this year.
