There used to seem to be just two options when buying luxury handbags. You would have to put off buying one for a very long time, or you would have to happen across a fancy consignment store. However, finding luxury consignment shops with excellent collections can be challenging.

Where can I find an unsold luxury handbag?
Retailers of luxury brands don’t advertise as much, and occasionally the ones with the best product assortment were charming little vintage shops abroad that not everyone had access to. Of course, there’s also the genuine worry of unintentionally buying a phony bag.
However, the advent of online shopping has altered the resale industry, forcing many of these companies to expand globally and offering customers the opportunity to buy from like-minded peers worldwide. To ensure that customers trust their websites, many also employ specialized teams to authenticate the goods they receive.
Are there any legitimate sites where I can find a designer handbag?
Yes! You don’t need to go to Paris to look for that adorable vintage Chanel backpack you spotted in a vintage shop. It is now accessible with a few clicks. Below are our top picks!
The Fifth Collection
The Fifth Collection is a regional e-commerce site established in 2014 focused on high-end vintage clothing. The website has one of the most competitive pricing we’ve found on the market and offers a carefully curated range of designer items.
Additionally, you may schedule a meeting with the consignment team so they can visit your home to evaluate the designer products you want to sell if you’re interested in generating money rather than just, well, spending it.
Vestiare Collective has almost ten years of experience in the premium resale market, so it is no novice in the used-goods industry. Although the website is already well-known in Europe, it has only recently started operating in Asia and introduced its upscale concierge service in Singapore in June.
Thanks to their extensive reach, you may find practically every designer brand (both luxury and cult labels) within their stable.
The RealReal is an American luxury consignment website established in San Francisco in 2011. Due to the website’s increased success, the business has now established two permanent brick-and-mortar locations in the United States, going beyond an online presence.
The RealReal has a broad selection of products due to the larger market, including streetwear labels like Supreme and limited edition designer/high street collaborations.
The website appears to offer more than simply used goods since luxury designers like Gucci, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, and Bottega Veneta’s parent company, Kering, have been known to dump unsold inventory from previous seasons onto the platform.
