Welcome to the world of the top 3 international luxury resellers – spreading in strength from Asia, USA and France. It’s so tough to choose a favourite, so I use all three to keep an eye out for my favourite wish list items.
As you know, I’m an avid fan of Loewe’s Amazona bag. Therefore any luxury resale site that doesn’t have a few listed is not as useful for me.
Having scoured the internet for my long term Amazona acquisition goals, I’ve found the most easy-to-use luxury resellers with the biggest variety, reliable alerts and smooth apps are the following three champions : (in alphabetical order)
All three sites are the top of their respective markets and now vying for global share.
All guarantee authenticity and have experts to check all items before sale completes.
They’ve got some pretty precise alert systems for people looking for specific items too!
Highlights of each site is as follows :
REEBONZ – founded in Singapore
A true luxury site with most items in mint condition – here you’ll find pieces that are rare, collectable and tres luxury, like 400+ entries for Birkins of all sizes and 350+ Cartier watches with sellback guarantees. As well as all the latest mainstream luxe trends too. I’ve purchased a stunning gunmetal Loewe Amazona 36″ and delicious little Loewe black suede tote handbag from Reebonz so far.
UPSIDE : Very good condition good from Asia where luxury items are generally looked after very well. (I saw a woman with a tiny clear rain poncho for her mini Birkin the other day). Payment plans available for items sold by Reebonz directly (not from other sellers).
DOWNSIDE : A little more expensive than the other two on pricing. The site adjusts to your location and discounts offers are seasonal and can be fleeting. Installment plans must be paid in person at the local office (as is standard, the credit card must have total amount of item in available credit to be eligible.)
THE REAL REAL – founded in USA
My favourite shopping interface with some of the more competitive prices I’ve seen. I find items can be a little better value on TRR so I’ll always check against this site to see I’m getting the best deal.
UPSIDE : Wonderful visual website, constant 20% off code REAL for use site wide.
DOWNSIDE : No real downsides to this one! Except that the affiliate program keeps hopping around so it’s tough for me to get any extra links for you. Will update soon!
VESTIAIRE COLLECTIVE – founded in France
The Ebay of luxury is fast taking over the world! A great place to set your own price selling designer goods, or find great steals from Europe and vintage designer finds.
UPSIDE : Wonderful vintage and european release pieces to be discovered. Constantly new stock and currently expanding across Asia.
DOWNSIDE : Sellers can be flaky! I’ve had one seller complete the sale and then randomly decide not to part with the item after all, offering me a refund. A bit absurd but it happens. Also processing time can be a little longer because seller must ship to Vestiaire for authentication and then Vestiaire mails onwards to the buyer.
Those are my top three big designer resale favourite sites to buy from!
A commendation for a really wonderful smaller luxury resale store that I’ve bought a few of my beautiful bags from, including my favourite Jimmy Choo Blare ocelot travel bag and Louboutin Farida messenger bag. Wonderful service and I like them a lot.
UPSIDE : More boutique style USA seller with really great personal service feel. Easy website, good instagram, ebay shop and international shipping.
DOWNSIDE : Smaller selection, so many high luxury items aren’t available.
Thank you for clicking on the links in this article; doing so supports this site which I’ve set up purely out of passion for fashion and writing. I choose to work only with affiliates that I think are fabulous and bias to those I like to personally purchase from.
I’m an experienced, picky online shopper (as you could probably guess) so these are my choices for the highest standards and smoothest experiences. Enjoy!
