Talk about cars, motorcycles or gadgets, buying used items are common. But what about fashion accessories like bags, clutches, and purses? Though the concept of buying used accessories is not a new one, there are many who are still skeptical about buying a used item. This is because a new accessory might seem a more valuable purchase. But with popular designer fashion brands, buying a new accessory might mean having to spend a huge amount. And you can’t use a single handbag with all your outfits. You would need one that is god for daily use, one for a formal occasion, one casual bag, a peppy one for those days you decide to go bold, a chic one for the evening and so on. So you might end up spending a fortune if you really have to rely on purchasing a brand new item each time. This is where buying used accessories comes in handy.
Pre-owned bags might be great investments. For a brand new bag, you would have to worry about a steep cut in the price when you decide to sell it after a short period of use. But with used bags, you buy them at a lower price and when you resell them, the price you sell them for might be somewhat close to the price you spent.
Many designer brands come with lifetime quality assurance. This means that no matter how much the bag has been used, you still have a durable one. And certain collections which are specifically designed for daily usage come with matte finish scratch resistant surfaces that don’t show signs of wear. This makes them look good as new. So you have a new-looking bag at a much lower price when you buy from a genuine retailer. So the next time you find used Gucci bags on sale, grab them without a second though instead of spending several dollars more for a brand new version.
