Pre-Loved Handbags

Outside of what I use to curl my hair and what mascara I wear, one of the top asked questions is in relation to my handbag collection. I am totally a luxury handbag lover! All of my girlfriends and family members will actually call me and ask to borrow bags for special events or something because I have all of the neutrals covered! You can kind of get a feel for my style of handbag when you see the collection on the wall. Back on topic though.. I get e-mails so frequently from readers asking where a good place to buy a pre-loved luxury handbags and be guarantee that it is authentic! Over the past few years, I have helped my sister & some friends shop for pre-loved bags and I have purchased a few luxury items pre-loved so I have had the chance to explore the different options. eBay is one of the first sites to come to mind because they have a section [HERE] that shares only authenticated luxury handbags – and these are all verified by experts. eBay guarantees their authenticity! On this subject, last spring I went on a mad hunt for a specific Louis Vuitton wallet that has not been produced in years but works as an organizer or even a clutch! I looked high and low and eventually found one on eBay – purchased it immediately! I was so thrilled because I was able to get it pre-loved so at a bit of a discount but it was also guaranteed authentic so I knew I’d get exactly what I wanted and have no concerns! Personally, I tend to buy most handbags new and in the store just because I do occasionally sell them, however, when it comes to certain pieces – I will look for a pre-loved, but also in great shape.

I went through the Authenticated Luxury Handbags sections on eBay and browsed through EVERY page of items! I was kind of scouting out the options for you all so I could point out the ones that I really love or that are similar to ones you all ask me about quite often. I have to point out that using the Authenticated Luxury Handbags section is the best way to make sure you are getting your bag guaranteed authentic and it will say that it is verified! Anyway, one of the reasons I’d recommend eBay is because I love that you have the option to either Bid OR Buy It Now- depending on the seller. I also love how thorough the listings are – when I got my wallet I was warned that there were signs of wear along the zipper of the wallet and a small scratch inside. Also, there are many detailed images that give you a good look at the item so you can get an idea of the shape it is in.

eBay’s selection is HUGE! Everything from Hermes, to Gucci, to Louis Vuitton, to Celine & Chanel! I really love finding vintage pieces lately and I saw several beautiful vintage items that I currently have my eye on.. 🙂 PS. My mom wanted my LV wallet so I decided to order a similar stye that is a bit smaller from the Authenticated section of eBay so I will do a full unboxing on my IG stories when I get it!


A few that REALLY caught my eye that I wanted to point out are:

Tan Celine Knot Bag [insert heart eye emoji!!!!!]

Black Velvet Gucci Marmont

Chanel Flap Wallet

Chanel Classic Flap in Black w/Gold Hardware

Black Celine Phantom

Neon Yellow Celine Phantom [seriously I want this one!!]

White Goyard St. Louis Tote

Louis Vuitton Wallet

I thought I’d share a few items that are the same or similar to handbags I have in my collection below:

  1. oh i have been waiting for this post. its helpful to know these things. only downside for me is that i live in canada so it doesn’t make sense for me to pay more or convert to us dollars b/c it turns out to be more $$$.

    what i have been trying to do is look for a similar page on ebay.ca but cannot find anything that says “authenticated luxury handbags”. it will me time to find lol but eventually i will find it ahaha

    but this post still helps for me to look for the big red sign that says its an authenticated. but no luck so far…. 🙁

    love the outfit!!! 🙂 and all those handbags in the background lol

    xo

    1. I always link similar options in my blog posts! I don’t really love the idea of pushing ‘replicas’ or ‘fakes’ simply because of what goes on behind the scenes to produce those!
