Collectors of luxury handbags and purses are often searching for vintage finds because they’ve fallen in love with a previous season’s line. Others are motivated by the up to 60% markdown on new bags or are genuinely trying to walk a little lighter on Mother Earth and shop vintage as a commitment to ethical fashion.

If you’re buying or selling a luxury bag, or you’d like your own designer piece valued, you’re in the right place.
