I do believe in shopping pre-loved. I’ve bought designer handbags both directly from the boutiques as well as on the resale market. It’s probably not a miracle that over the time, I found that I get more enjoyment out of a hunt for a pre-loved, well-priced and great-condition handbag. Therefore, in this blog post, I’d like to share with my readers my top 3 trusted places to shop for authentic pre-loved luxury!
My number one choice is TheRealReal. It is the premier site for online luxury consignment with multiple locations across the United States that accept and ship products worldwide. TheRealReal has a dedicated team of authentication experts, horologists and gemologists who know exactly how to tell real from counterfeit.
