Top 5 Places To Buy Second Hand Designer Handbags

I just happen to really really love designer bags. Be it Louis Vuitton, Gucci, or Fendi, over time I’ve spent all my savings on acquiring designer handbags, signature stoles, and other luxury adornments from such brands. However, because luxury fashion is expensive, I have over the years accustomed myself to shop pre-owned luxury. It’s an affordable way to get that chic Chanel clutch without me breaking the bank. I also feel that pre-owned luxury fashion is a form of sustainable fashion that we all should seriously consider. So, over the years I’ve scoured the internet for designer handbag resale websites and made a list of the 5 best websites from around the world that are the best when it comes to shopping pre-owned designer handbags.
