The Do's of Buying Pre-Owned Handbags

  1. Make sure that the site is reputable. There are a lot of sites out there that say they are authentic when they are not! Do research on the company. Check the Better Business Bureau reviews. Google the site. Find a toll free number and call the company to make sure someone answers the phone.
  2. Look at all the pictures listed for the bag you want. LuxeDH goes to great lengths to ensure that the photographs of each handbag capture every angle, corner, zipper, pocket, piece of leather, etc. Make sure that you look at the photograph with a mannequin to know if the bag is the right size for you.
  3. Find the authenticity code for most bags that you want to buy. Remember that some handbags are very vintage and might not come with an authenticity code. Some pre-owned Chanel's that were manufactured a long time ago did not come with authenticity codes.
  4. Read the description of the handbag you want to purchase. It is important to note that pre-owned bags are gently loved, so make sure to note the condition before making your purchase. Most of the handbags LuxeDH has listed are in excellent condition and we are very upfront about describing the condition of every bag on our site.
  5. Do research on what the best bag is for you. The most popular styles, like the Louis Vuitton Speedy and Neverfull, are classics, but you may want something more distinct, like a Louis Vuitton Tivoli or Galliera. There are different shapes, sizes, colors and materials for every designer, so make sure the one you order is the one you want. Celebrity trends will show you the latest handbag craze!

The Dont's of Buying Pre-Owned Handbags

  1. Don't be fooled by fakes! Contact LuxeDH to make sure that what you are buying is authentic.
  2. Don't be tricked by low prices. If the price looks too good to be true, then it probably is! Low prices usually indicate a fake site. A Chanel should never sell for under $ 300.
  3. Don't be shy to ask questions about the handbag site you find online.
  4. Don't forget that pre-owned bags will be less than retail prices, because they are pre-loved.
  5. Don't forget that most sites have a way for you to sell your own bags for cash. This will allow you to free up space in your closet and put money in your wallet for your next handbag purchase!
