As it is becoming more and more obvious that the fashion conscious are shopping for pre-loved items instead of buying new, you might wonder why this has suddenly taken off. The reason is simple, your dream handbag could be sitting in someone else’s wardrobe, and in fact, they might not even want it there anymore.
Luxury designers like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Gucci make their bags to last a lifetime. Using the finest materials and craftsmanship, they are the big players for exactly that reason. However, it might just be that your style changes, or you find another handbag that you’ve always wanted but you can’t afford it. This is what makes buying pre-loved so special, you can sell an item that you don’t personally wear anymore, and in exchange get a return that means you will be able to go ahead and buy your next luxury purchase. Selling to pre-loved platforms couldn’t be easier and means you’re reaching out to a fashion loving audience, who will really have an interest in your bag.
The fact that the bags of these top designers are always so high in demand, and hold their condition very well is exactly why Bagista only stocks luxury items. You know you will be purchasing a bag that has no shelf-life and you will be able to wear for years to come. Many pre-loved sites, including Bagista, also sell brand new items so if you sell a few of your pre-loved bags, you could put that towards a new purchase if you’d prefer.
An obvious benefit of buying pre-loved is that you can get your hands on bags that are no longer sold through the retailer. For example, Mulberry have now stopped selling some of their highly sought after collaborations or celebrity inspired bags, which you didn’t happen to get at the time that they went on sale, but you now wish were still available. Buying pre-loved means, you can choose from a huge archive of designs from the best designers, usually at a better price, whilst helping another fellow fashionista put that money towards her next bag.
