Purchasing preloved items can have many advantages. The first and simplest one being frugality. As we all know purchasing every new fashion item your in love with can sometimes take a dig into your funds. If you’re trying to save a buck why not go with pre-loved fashions. A lot of people are into reselling things from fashion to home decor.. It’s a great way to get rid of some thing that serves no purpose for you anymore and you benefit from it as well. The next reason buying pre-love items could benefit you is Availability. Some Luxury pieces that have limited availability. I mean that’s what makes some things some cool to have nowadays . That limited piece you’re looking for that’s sold out may be available on a resell website. Beware in this circumstance the item may be a little more than the original price because there's a high demand for the item. Here are a few sites I use to buy and sell pre-loved items.
1. yogis closet
Yogis closet my sisters favorite. This site Authenticates all items sold on they're site. Unlike other site like e-bay where you have to rely on the sellers honesty that your item is authentic.They also have great details in the pictures from the serial number to condition of the items. Last they provide information on how to tell if a bag is authentic, how to read the serial numbers and how to see where it was made. Why not learn the basics of authentication.
2. The Real Real
The real real is another site who authenticates their pieces before it is available for purchase. Although sometime the pictures may not be as detailed as yogis closet. They also have a larger selection and larger variety of designers. As well as huge variety in price differences. For instance the fendi Zucca baguette you were looking for can be found on the website multiple times in different price ranges depending on the wear and tare of the bag.
FarFetch is one on those website that connect you to boutiques all over the world. so when they launched the re-selling platform a few yers ago many were excited. Like the previous 2 sites listed FarFetch authenticates all of they're items as well before they are available for purchase. what I love is being able to purchase pre-loved items from a variety of different boutiques all over there world, which gives the the advantage of finding some one of a kind or really old but good vintage pieces. Do be aware FarFetch can sometime be a little pricey do to currency rate and conversion. But lets be honest sometimes the uniques piece can be well worth purchase in the long run. farfetch.com
