    Default Re: Do you buy preowned luxury goods?

    I would buy pre-owned bags definitely, as long as they are CLEAN and from a smoke and pet free environment. My child is extremely allergic, so i am very careful, also i feel terribly guilty about buying a designer bag at full price, instead of saving for their college!!!! I definitely shop at outlet stores, but have never bought one at full retail! maybe, someday or better still hope my kids get it for me when they are older Happy Mother's day!

    Default Re: Do you buy preowned luxury goods?

    I have also bought pre-owned. I like to buy items that look brand new. I wish I had a consignment store near me. Maybe when I have some free time I will have to check out my local Goodwill, maybe I can pick up something good there.

    Done...I think...Until I find something that catches my eye

    I haven't bought anything pre-owned (as of yet ) -- There are some good looking things on my local Craigslist .. but not sure if people are really honest !!

    Default Re: Do you buy preowned luxury goods?

    I've never bought any pre-owned luxury stuff, but only because I have yet to find any reasonably priced. I feel that if it's a good deal and is in really good condition, I would definitely get it. In general, though, I prefer to buy items new just because I know if there's a defect, etc. I can head right back to the store! And I'm also super picky about handbags!

    i've bought pre-owned before and have been happy. the consignment shops i've bought from have all been good experiences. It's great they exist because sometimes i missed out on a bag and have a second chance to buy it. a bag doesn't have to necessarily be in-season for me to love it.

    Thanks LMA! We're bag twins!! Is yours black too? Would love to see some modelling pics
    I've been really lucky so far on Ebay, bought 2 BNWT bags which I still have and love and; 2 preloved ones that are in excellent condition with the interior still smelling of leather! Similar to another member who posted, I only buy items from smoke/pet free homes and only if it is in excellent condition(no/min marks, no odor etc). I'm pretty anal with my things and only buy from other 'anal' sellers, KWIM?
    I'm actually tracking another tote, hopefully it ends way below my limit

    I'm all about pre-owned bags, I'm not the only purse fiend out there and many ladies take as good care of their bags as I take of mine, and I'm happy to purchase their bags.
    There is a great consignment store in Scottsdale AZ, I got really lucky with a lambskin Chanel flap there once, they practically GAVE it to me!

    Grin Re: Do you buy preowned luxury goods?

    While I have never owned a pre-owned bag (i am usually the one giving my stuff away ), I wont mind buying a pre-owned bag from someone I know and can trust.

    Read way too many horror stories about people buying stuff on ebay and auction sites and getting scammed. But if the bag is from a relative or a close friend, sure, as long as it's in good condition!

    But yeah, I have a few designer bags that I'm sort of bored of having and want new ones and they are in really good condition! Which is also an issue for me... my bags are usually kept in good condition and i get them washed professionally on a yearly basis or use leather wipes to clean them. So, if the used bag isnt clean or well-kept, I wont buy it... and most of hte used bags Ive seen on auction sites arent kept in good conditions. They look like they belong in the trash, if you asked me. And I really cannot bring myself to buy a dirty and soiled high-end designer bag when I could buy a brand new less prestigious designer bag.

    However, I dont usually sell my bags, I just pass it down to my cousins (been this way since i was born... old clothes? give to the cousins or salvation army :P).

    My '08 Amethyst City was pre-owned and bought from let-trade, however it literally looked brand new. It didn't come with a dustbag or extra tassles, but it had everything else I would have gotten as if I bought it from the store.

    Absolutely I would. Especially Chanel. But I make it a point of having everything authenticated first.
