If you are in the market for pre-owned designer bags but are concerned that they might still be out of your price range, you’re in luck. There are plenty of places online where you can get authentic pre-owned designer bags at great discounts.
Know Your Brands
Some brands and styles retain value or even increase in value indefinitely. Brands with timeless classics like Chanel or Hermes still have models of purses you can get at steep discounts if you know where to look, and many of the sites you might be looking to buy from have great customer reviews so you can make sure you’re not ending up with a counterfeit handbag. If you’re in the market for a new-to-you handbag, you’ll want to consider your options and where to get some of the best deals.
EBay is a great place to find good deals on pre-owned handbags. You can find top brands, talk directly with the owners, see how happy their previous customers have been, and more. EBay also has buyer protection so, while you might be concerned about getting a counterfeit bag, you do have some protection in case of fraud.
Lollipuff is another potentially good place to get discounts on designer bags. They confirm their goods are authentic before allowing them to be listed for auction, which adds another layer of protection for buyers. They even have plenty of blog posts that can teach you how to spot a fake if you’re looking to buy from other sites.
Online Stores Offering Vintage or Pre-Owned Goods
Sites like Bluefly sell new and some vintage items and often have good deals. Bluefly has brands like Prada, Dior, Rebecca Minkoff, Furla, Gucci, Longchamp, and more. Luxe DH has plenty of carefully maintained pre-owned bags with great deals and carries well-known brands like Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chanel, Dior, Goyard, Balenciaga, Gucci,and more. Luxe DH also offers monthly payment plans. Fashionphile is one of the leading sources of bags in the secondary market, and they even tell you exactly how much they’d buy the bag back for if you decide to sell it back at some point.
Now that Etsy has given the green light on selling vintage goods, some sellers even sell pre-owned and carefully maintained designer handbags on Etsy. Sellers can’t sell new purses but there is a rather large market on Etsy for vintage goods, particularly if they’re high quality.
There is a growing market for pre-owned luxury goods like handbags thanks to proliferation of internet sites and information about the investment value of some handbags. Make sure to do your research and start investing yourself or get a handbag of your dreams for a great deal.
