6 Insider Tips for Selling Your Designer Handbag

6 Insider Tips for Selling Your Designer Handbag

9th Apr 2019

Not all designer handbag resale stores are created equal. Keeks delivers more when you sell to us, and we want to help you make the most of the experience with these tips for selling your gently used designer handbags.

Tip #1 – Get Paid Up Front

Other stores work on a one-year-consignment model. This means you only get paid if and when they sell your bag. They may quote you what seems like more money at first, but you may have to wait a year to get paid. If your bag takes a long time to sell, it will likely get marked down along the way, meaning you get less and later. 

Keeks buys your bag up front for resale. We make you an offer and you can walk away with cash the same day. No guess work. No waiting.

Tip #2 – Know What Your Handbag is Worth

Go to LuxuryPriceGuide.com, and type the name of your bag into the search bar to see our Instant Cash Offers for bags like yours. Obviously, these offers are dependent on the bag’s condition, but LuxuryPriceGuide.com offers details about what that means, too. When you know what to expect, you’re more likely to take the best deal!

Tip #3 – Consider Selling Remotely

You don’t even have to show up in person to sell your bag or get a quote. More details here.

Tip #4 – Get More Out of Your Bag

If you opt to get paid in store credit instead of cash, you’ll qualify for a higher dollar amount! So it might pay to do a little window-shopping before you sell.

Tip #5 – Manage Your Time

If you do come into one of our stores to sell your handbag, we can usually offer a quote in 15 – 30 minutes. Alternative: you can drop it off, never look back, and we can call you with our offer and mail you a check!

Tip #6 – Take Care of Your Precious Cargo

If you might want to sell your bag in the future, it of course helps to keep it in good condition. Check out these common pitfalls that affect the resale value of your designer handbag, and avoid them! And one more item that didn’t make that list…

Bonus Tip! - Keep it Fresh

A common thing that keeps us from buying as many bags as we want to? Second-hand smoke! The more it smells, the worse it sells, so think about cutting back, cracking a window, or tucking those sweet Chanel and Louis babies away before you light up!
