    Question Do you buy preowned luxury goods?

    Hi - I own a luxury goods consignment store. I am wondering if any of you have purchased from consignment store before or if you would consider buying preowned at all?

    As far as consignment, I do consider buying from consignment store. However, I dont know anywhere that are in Seattle that have luxury items. ALso mostly online consignment I think they are way more expensive in the state of item like too much stain or damages.. I find it more cheaper on ebay..
    I do buy pre-owned on ebay, but I only buy the item that are close to new especially LV so i dont have to deal with the patina and the retail price.. I just brought an LV bag recently and I was so scare of using the bag.. I was worrying left and right about the patina get dirty, stain,and watermark. I literally have to carry the dustbag everywhere with me.. But certain LV are meant to buy new like the Speedy 30 or Nevefull MM

    I've never shopped at consignment stores simply because there's none where I live. If there was and the items sold are in excellent condition at the right price, I definitely would buy it. In fact, I just got my new-to-me Gucci leather tote with bamboo handle from Ebay UK for just 51 pounds
    It's been authenticated and in excellent condition! I just love it

    There is an awesome upscale boutique near where I live in Charlotte and I buy from there. I also buy from thrift stores etc. around here not many people know about luxury goods, so when people donate them etc. I see them and know what they are and snatch them up! For example... my mom and I went to this goodwill near us and we got a nannette leopore dress, missoni pants, and catherine malandrino pants for like $20. All in beautiful condition, as I'm sure they were owned by someone with great taste! It's all about looking and willing to search even through the goodwill lol

    I have bought stuff from Let-Trade before, that's a consignment operation. If it something limited edition, I don't mind buying used. Or if it's something I know I would really beat around, buying used saves me from being paranoid I'm going to ruin the bag. LOL! Does that make sense?

    Only have one of the whole bag, attached. I'll take more pics tomorrow. I just took pics of it today for authentication purposes(logo, serial no, tag inside etc), no modelling pics yet.

    For designer bags, I usually prefer new. I would buy used if I couldn't find the bag new though. It is not that I am against buying used, I just prefer new bags.

    I usually purchase my handbags brand new straight from the designer's store or retail store. I've been doing this for 18 years. I'm a big fan of NEW designer stuff.

    I will purchase preowned bags and maybe wallets if they in excellent condition and like new and the price is right (bargain). I will also purchase preowned if it's a bag that I really want that is sold out in the stores. Again has to be in excellent condition inside and out though!

    I don't have a lot of money right now but I still have great taste, so if there were a high end designer luxury consignment shop near me I would definitely go there on a hunt for new (or in excellent condition items.

    I LOVE pre-owned luxury goods. If they are in good condition you can save so much money- and buy more bags!!

    For example that website rent me a handbag that sells pre-used bags in good condition- its great because sometimes you get bags at 1/2 the original price and they usually look new when you receive them. I am particular about where I buy used luxury items on the internet because buying on Ebay can be really sketchy at times!

    I think an upscale consignment is a great idea, especially in the current economy. What is even better is upscale luxury consignment store on the internet- sign me up!!!

    And its not as if people buying pre-owned underwear, ya know?! Its sweet sweet purses and personally if i can't afford to buy the purse I NEED at the time new- I can live with gently used!!

    I DEFINITELY buy preowned luxury goods, as long as they're in good condition. I feel like bags that are taken care of don't get as much wear as say clothes or shoes; I totally don't mind buying and using a pre-loved bag! I also like saving the money, especially in these times, if you can get something for considerably cheaper than retail. I have purchased preowned before, both from ebay, other purse lovers, and consignment stores.

    No, it's not just you. I feel the same exact way. I am a very very very clean and neat person and a handbag is a very personal item. I just ordered a handbag on eBay for the 1st time and am already freakin out about how I will clean the inside of the bag out. I mean it LOOKS clean but is it really "clean" is the question?? I was considering taking it to a shoe repair to see if they clean the inside of handbags. Then I considered just turning it inside out and seeing if I could wash it but since the inside is suede I don't want to ruin it. So yea it's not just you!!

    I would absolutely buy preowned goods!

    But only if they're in good condition and I thought it was a fair price for something used. I refuse to pay almost new prices for something I know is used. (Here in Japan that's a problem though sometimes, the prices are jacked up anyway)

    There are tons of consignment shops I go to in my area that sell Gucci, Prada, LV, Tods, Hermes, Burberry, etc. but, I wouldn't buy something that looked like crap, just because it was a cheap price and had a top brand name (and I've had many chances).

    I may not have alot of money, but I have "some" standards. LOL!
