In the past, L2B has highlighted a few different retailers for Thursday Purseday, but today I wanted to focus on resellers. There are several websites that claim to sell authentic designer items, however only a handful can be trusted. Two of my favorite, legitimate, online shopping destinations are Bag Borrow or Steal Private Sale and Yoogi’s Closet.
Both of these online stores only accept the best of the best for consignment (I should know; they wouldn’t accept my fairly used Gucci Abbey Medium Hobo) and all items are guaranteed authentic. Each company has their own in-house experts that inspect and certify each and every item that they sell. And if you’re still not convinced, returns are accepted up to 30 days after you receive your item in the mail.
Brand new designer goods are amazing, perfect and gorgeous, but are they really practical? This is the approach many consignment shops take to resell couture accessories. Regardless of age, a designer bag is a designer bag and the value does not decrease much if taken care of. In fact, many socialites and fashionistas prefer the worn look. Who has to know it wasn’t you that broke it in?
Would you buy a pre-loved designer bag or do you need something new? Or are designer bags just too expensive and impractical for your taste?
