4 Steps On How To Invest In The Right Bag!

If you have luxury bags you don’t use anymore, consignment is a quick and easy solution to your problem. With second-hand fashion markets on the rise, reselling pre-loved items is a great way to free up your cluttered closet and earn some extra cash. Here are a few tips and tricks to help pick out a bag that will be easy to resell, and leave you with the most money in your pocket.



1. Brand Matters

For the highest resale value, the best brands to buy are Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Hermes. These bags are timeless: people will still be carrying the classic Louis Vuitton Neverfull, Chanel Flap, and Hermes Kelly styles ten years from now, while brands like Gucci seem to fall in and out of favor.

2. Style

Avoid any super-trendy pieces that are only around for a season or two, because items like these are always a hit or miss. A limited edition bag could be resold for far more than the initial retail price, but it could also turn out to be worthless, leaving you stuck with a bag you don't want and no chance of getting your money back. Stick with the classics that have been around for awhile.

3. Condition 

No one wants a bag with stains that won't come out, or one appearing so worn that people can tell it’s used with just a glance. Maintaining your bag's condition will give you the best chance of reselling it for the highest price possible.

4. Let Consignment Shops Do The Work

Selling your items yourself can be stressful and time-consuming. It's a lot more difficult than you may think: pictures need to be taken, price determined, and shipping and handling taken care of. Using a consignment shop like Luxury Resale Network takes away all of the headaches for a small percentage of the sale price, guaranteeing that you will receive the money you deserve for your items - to learn more on how to consign, click here!
