Luxury for Less: Top Picks in Second Hand Bags

Luxury for Less: Top Picks in Second Hand Bags

People choose to visit a secondhand market to acquire a desired bag at a significantly lower price than what they would pay in a boutique. The pre-loved market presents a new frontier full of opportunities. Fight it if one must; the market for secondhand goods simply has too many advantages for customers to ignore. It's a smart way to save money, support sustainability efforts, or simply combat painful price hikes. So, which bags are truly the most popular on the secondhand market? Check out these three bags!

 

Hermes Birkin

Many women are turning to vintage Hermes Birkin bags primarily due to the long waiting lists at Hermes boutiques. Another advantage of buying preloved Birkin bags is that their value goes up over time.

Chanel Jumbo Classic Double Flap

The classic Chanel is everyone’s favorite to buy second hand as they create scarcity by producing a limited number of bags each season. Consequently, some bags become super popular and difficult to buy in stores.

Fendi Baguette

The iconic Baguette from Sex and the City, Fendi’s Baguette was the very first ‘IT bag’ back in the ’90s but, as said best by Carrie, “It’s not a bag. It’s a Baguette.” The ultimate vintage piece, the Baguette is a must-have for every serious collector.

Choosing the right option for a second hand bag depends on whether or not you are willing to wait months or years for a new designer bag from the boutique. The rise in status and value, as well as the long-lasting quality of pre-loved luxury bags, make this the more realistic option for many women. Purchasing a vintage luxury bag doesn’t reduce the quality but is indeed the smart way for your financial decision as a woman.
