Why You Should Consign Your Luxury Handbag Right Now

Have you been staring at the same beautiful bag in your closet for years and haven’t worn it? Or perhaps trying to pare down your collection to make room for something new? There has never been a better time to sell your luxury handbag or accessories. Demand and resale value for luxury brands like Hermes, Chanel, Louis Vuitton has risen exponentially over the past few years and continues to climb.


It’s no secret that I am a strong believer in selling handbags. Not only am I always looking for more closet space, but it softens the blow of a new purchase if I am funding it with the sale of another. My philosophy is, if I no longer wear it, I should consider selling it. When my heart doesn’t jump at the thought of letting it go, I know it’s time to consign.
