I get so many questions regarding how I feel about buying pre-owned luxury bags online. Let’s face it…it’s scary business! You have to be extremely careful or you could end up losing a lot of money. Designer handbags are expensive and not everyone can afford to buy brand new.
I have several pre-owned handbags that I’ve purchased online and never had any issues (knock on wood). If anyone is skeptical, it’s usually me. It’s never easy buying anything online much less than a very expensive designer handbag that’s pre-owned.
Here are a few tips to purchasing a pre-owned designer handbag online:
1. Make sure to ask a lot of questions! The more you ask, the better and if they get annoyed…that’s the first sign to run!
2. Make sure the photos are clear pictures of the actual bag and not a stock image (don’t be afraid to ask for more if necessary). Always check the close up images and make sure you see a clear shot of the authenticity code.
3. Make sure the seller has flexible return policy in case there are any authentication issues.
4. Make sure the seller or online boutique is reputable and has good reviews.
I wish I would have known about Trendlee back in the day because it would have saved me so much time and research! Haven’t heard of them? They sell pre-owned luxury handbags online. Everything is authenticated and they offer your money back if any item is proven to be unauthentic. You can also return your purchase for any reason – no questions asked (only in the U.S).
I’m loving this Chloe Drew crossbody bag! I was surprised at how nice the condition was. You never know what to expect when buying pre-owned regardless of how well you do your research or screening. I was very pleased that the item was exactly as described online and actually was in much better condition that I had anticipated.
I’m happy to report that based on my experience so far, this is definitely the go-to place if you’re looking to save money on designer bags. They sell everything from Hermes, Chanel, Prada, Celine, Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton. Be sure to check them out HERE if you’re looking to score designer handbags for less!
