Selling a Louis Vuitton Speedy

The Speedy is a Louis Vuitton classic. It has vintage roots, but with the popularization of vintage fashion, this bag is having a comeback. There are many sizes of the speedy ranging from a 25 to 35. Generally speaking, smaller bags seek higher prices, as well as the bandoulière style, which includes a crossbody strap.

If you're looking to sell your Speedy, TheRealReal would be a strong choice. TheRealReal accepts consignments from vintage to brand new, so no matter the year of your bag or the interests of the shopper, they will find your bag while shopping on TheRealReal.
Despite being a strong choice, The RealReal is a very large reselling platform where items are processed quickly without consulting the seller. Therefore your item may be priced as you expect, or perhaps not. As seen above, Alex Cooper Auctioneers has sold many speedys with different, styles, sizes and materials. The auction estimates were decided upon during a meeting with the seller.
