    eBay I guess? Or purse forum websites if you wanted a more private sale.
    I've never actually visited it here, but if you get too 100+ posts, you're granted access to TBF's Shopping or Buy/Sell boards.

    They'd probably have some advice there.
    Or maybe someone else in here is good at valuing bags.
    Not sure.
    Good luck though!

    Here is an update for the Fashion Marketplace. http://www.thebagforum.com/announcem...ouncement.html

    You could always try ebay. Just watch and see what your bags are selling for there.

    If I go to sell something, usually I know what I want for it. For instance, I purchased my Marilyn for $1,450 after I paid taxes and everything. If I was cash-strapped and needed to sell it, I would take no less than $1,100 (but she's not going for sale any time soon or ever...)

    If you know what you paid for it, that would be what I would use as kind of a guide. If it has a lot of wear, then try to get 50%...if it looks new try to get 70-80%...

    make sense?

    YOu can always sell it on ebay, and start bidding at .99 but set a reserve for the lowest price you will accept. If you get some people in a bidding war ... you could sell the item for more than you paid for it!

    I got a denim jacket at Old Navy one year and then decided I didn't like it ... it cost $6.97 or something outrageously cheap. I stuck it on ebay (new with tags) and it sold for like...$25...had I known that I would have bought every last jacket!

    Do you have an ebay account? You can look up completed listings to see how much bags like yours are selling for or even if they are selling at all. You could also try consignment. Fashionphile sometimes has 20% commission sales... meaning they specially offer to sell your stuff for only 20% commission (regular is a freakishly high 40%). I wouldn't recommend AFF, they want to keep 40% as well.

    Thanks guys. Will take a look around. Just that I kinda thought some bags might actually appreciate in value. Or at least thats what I heard. hehe could be pretty off tangent there though :P
