Selling your designer handbag and shoes can be a great way to earn some cash and make some space in your wardrobe.
We’re here to assist you through the entire process and dedicate ourselves to help you receive the best price for your item.
That’s why we’ve put together a few ways in which you can ensure that your item receives the highest offer possible.
Tips on increasing the resale value of your pre-loved designer items:
1) Browse through your closet as often as possible:
The longer something stays in your closet, the less likely it is that it will keep a high demand. A good idea here would be to sell items before they’re older than 3 or 4 seasons as they’re still fresh on people’s minds.
This obviously doesn’t apply to rare, classic or limited edition items as they are in a category of their own.
2) Keep all the extras if you’re planning on selling your designer handbag and shoes:
When possible, keep your authenticity card, box, dust bag and proof of purchase as this will all assist in increasing your items selling value.
3) Take care of your precious items:
You naturally purchased your designer items to use them, but be smart about it.
– Clean your bags regularly and wipe down on a weekly basis with a soft cloth.
NEVER use household cleaners or just any kind of chemical to clean your bags, especially leather ones. Invest in a high-quality leather cleanser.
– Identify your stains.
For dirt or fresh ink stains, use a white eraser immediately over the tainted spot. For grease stains, apply baby powder and let is sit overnight to soak up all the grease.
Leave stubborn stains to the professionals!
– Invest in a good handbag organiser.
Protect yourself from the agony of foundation spill or an ink stain.
Using a handbag organiser doesn’t only keep things in place, it also makes it easier to switch between your handbags.

– Condition your leather shoes
The added moisture will keep the leather super-supple and prevent pesky cracks.
– Store carefully
Where you choose to store your precious designer shoes is extremely important.
Keeping them in the wrong place can lead to scratching, fading and other serious damage.
Keep your shoe boxes and as an added measure use linen dust bags for home and travelling.
4) Keep the future in mind when purchasing your next luxury designer item:
If you’re one of those people who clears out their closet on a regular basis, then trendy pieces are a great option for you.
However, if you’re someone who likes to hold onto their designer items, then we recommend you pick classic pieces that have an existing track record.
Remember: selling your luxury items and rotating them on a regular basis allows you to PURCHASE more designer items, which just adds to all the fun!
