3 Reasons To Buy Pre-loved Bags
All of us girls at Bonjour Chiara HQ have something in common: we love designer bags. But this passion of ours can cost a lot of money.
We mean A LOT.
Today we share how to get the bag of your dreams saving some bucks from the original price.
We looked on the internet for secondhand and pre-loved bags and we found several online stores where to find bags at a fraction of the original tag. However, the amount of money to take out of your credit card is still quite generous, so it’s totally understandable that you might be scared to place your trust in an online shop. For this reason we tried the shopping experience with The Luxury Closet and it’s safe to say that we found an outlet that we trust.
We made a selection of bags we loved and then we waited. When our luxury goodies arrived, they satisfied our highest expectations. Despite tiny little scratches (that, anyway, where communicated by The Luxury Closet in the description box), these bags looked almost like brand new.
Excited by our experience we compiled a list of the best reasons to buy pre-loved bags.
3 REASONS TO BUY PRE-LOVED BAGS
1. TO MAKE THE WARDROBE OVER WITHOUT SPENDING A FORTUNE
It’s not a secret that accessories can do magic. If you are tired of the selection your wardrobe offers just add a statement accessory. It gives a new look even to your most worn outfit. And you don’t need to invest an entire year of salary. We have an open wishlist on The Luxury Closet where we included key bags and other small accessories like scarves and sunglasses that we will soon add to our wardrobes for a new fresh look.
2. TO SCOUT GOODS THAT ARE NOT LONGER AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET
Do you remember that bag you craved after for months but at the time you were ready to afford it it was not longer available in store? We all had these regrets! However, we surprisedly found on The Luxury Closet some bags that we thought were lost by now. They were still in decent conditions and this time we broke our piggy bank with no hesitations.
3. TO DEFINE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE
When you shop, it’s easy to be influenced by the latest collections. Stores always show new arrivals and you might end to buy something because it’s popular rather than because it suits your style. However, when we started looking for pre-loved bags we found ourselves more concentrated on our personal style and not on latest must haves. And there is nothing better to shop items that go with your personality and lifestyle.

I've never really looked into buying pre-owned designer bags online, but it's pretty much the same thing as thrifting, just for online shoppers! Love the idea, thanks for sharing :) xo, Brittany Nicole | wwwtheblistblog.com

These are beautiful bags! It's always nice when you find a resale site you can trust that has a lot of fun bags! I have bought a few of my bags second hand, I couldn't have such a big bag collection otherwise! :)
Hope you are having a lovely week so far and you have a fun weekend ahead of you :)

I love the idea of buying pre-loved accessories especially if they are well taken care of. Vintage bags can be such an amazing fashion statement and buying pre loved pieces makes me feel really good environmentally/sustainability wise.
NicoleApril 28, 2018
You're spot on with this. I only own a few luxury bags but there are a few from past season that I wish I had purchased. Plus, it creates less waste!
ChloeApril 28, 2018
I can't get over how beautiful these photos are! Stunning bags, I've never bought preloved before but I'd definitely consider it, I've heard the savings can be amazing!
MelissaApril 28, 2018
The number one reason is the best one! I would normally pick a new one but it can be so much money!
BetsyApril 29, 2018
How good of shape do the bags need to be to sell there I wonder? Definitely going to check in for buying and selling!

I have never heard of this site before I will have to check it out
EmilyApril 29, 2018
Vintage bags are so incredible! I'm planning to invest in some, plus it's more environmentally friendly to buy used as opposed to new.
Nikki OjiApril 30, 2018
Hi there! I really enjoyed this post! I completely agree with all your reasons for shopping pre-loved handbags. In fact, I'm working with a designer reseller myself who has a fabulous stock of gorgeous bags that are in such good condition! Some are even unused with the tags on! Rare, beautiful and affordable finds indeed. Great post (and I'm coveting these bags now too)!
AmandaMay 1, 2018
This is SO awesome, I'm going to have to check this site out. I agree-- why spend a TON on a new bag when you can save a find a great designer bag at a fraction of the price? Thanks for sharing!
AnneMay 1, 2018
I have a lot of bags and been selling some for the past few months to buy a new one. This entry opens me to try pre-loved bags, just like what I've been selling . :) Great idea!
