Give the buyer a full refund, and beg for forgiveness! Burn the counterfeit bags! There are severe penalties both civil and crimminal for trafficking counterfeit goods.

You sold items you knew were counterfeit. That's trademark infringement and can have civil and criminal liability. Returning the money would definitely be the best option and don't sell these things. Don't buy them either.
Please note: This response is solely general information or suggestions about your issue. It is not intended and should not be considered as legal advice, and I am not your attorney. Such professional advice requires creation of an attorney-client relationship and full disclosure to an attorney of a client’s circumstances and that attorney’s opportunity to analyze those circumstances and review any relevant documents against applicable law.
You give them the money back because under the law you are wrong for selling counterfeit goods and it matters not that you wrote a disclaimer.
DISCLAIMER: this is not intended to be specific legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. No attorney-client relationship is formed with the law firm of Natoli-Legal, LLC on the basis of this posting.
You're an admitted trademark infringer. You should give all buyers refunds, and stop infringing by selling fakes/counterfeits/replicas/inspired by junk. Apparently so far you haven't been caught by the brand owners; it's just a matter of time if you continue this.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
