Selling your designer handbag in 2019

All about Glambags Market, Selling designer items, Used designer items

A lot of people I’ve spoken to seem to have the same issues when it comes to selling their beloved designer handbag….

A big one that came up frequently was TRUST. And I totally understand their worries you have to trust the marketplace you are using to sell your item, trust the postal service to get the item to the buyer safety and last but certainly not least you have to trust the buyer.

Let me tell you a story what lead me to creating my own designer selling site. Last year I decided to sell a beautiful vintage Chanel bucket bag I had. And like most people, I know, I decided to list the bag on my eBay account. So I took some lovely pictures showing all the relevant features that identify an authentic Chanel handbag. And that was that.

A couple of days after listed my item a lady contacted me and asked me if I would be happy to hold the bag for her and have it authenticated from the pictures I had taken. I said this would be fine. And that’s what she did. I waiting about a week and she got back to me saying she had received confirmation from the authentication service that the bag was authentic. She said she would like to purchase the bag and she did.
So, as you do, I safely packaged the handbag and sent it to arrive with the buyer then next day.
I received a message the day after saying she had received the bag and absolutely loved it! (I knew she would 😊) She left 5* feedback and I thought that was that.

Now eBay give buyers the chance to send the item back if they are not happy with it (fair enough) although I never thought this would happen having received great feedback from the buyer. Although after a couple of months the buyer out of the blue contacted me telling me that she no longer wanted the bag as it was fake! I knew for a fact she was trying to pull a fast one. I knew that bag was NOT fake and so did she. Bare in mind this lady had already told me she had the bag authenticated! I told her that I would not be accepting a return after all this time!
And so she obviously contacted eBay.

I received a message from eBay telling me that the buyer will be returning the item. I argued with eBay about how the buyer is a scammer and sent all the messages between myself and the buyer. To no avail.

There was nothing I could do. Ebay don’t care about sellers. I knew this women had been using the bag in the time she had it. She told me she loved the bag!!

Now let me cut a long story short. I received the bag back from the buyer and it was completely ruined 😭 there was no way I could sell the bag now in the state it was in. I was so angry. I took some pictures and sent them to eBay and the buyer asking her to explain. They didn’t care eBay it is policy to give the buyers the opportunity to return something. And the evil buyer didn’t reply. Basically the buyer rented and ruined my bag and the returned it.

I thought to myself where can I sell my designer items safely and not have to send my items in to a consignment website. And realised that there wasn’t really anywhere to sell it myself the same way you can on eBay but without the worry of not being cared for as a seller. I decided to create my own designer selling site. At Glambags Market we allow our sellers to have complete control of their listings. We also value our sellers just as much as our buyers.

We give the buyers two weeks to return the item and we once a seller has sold an item we send the seller a tag to attach to their item. If this has been removed the buyer can not return the item.

Why used designer items are great!

All about Glambags Market, Used designer items

Designer items are loved by many. Although not everyone can afford the price of a brand new item from the store.

Therefore used designer items are booming at the moment, and there is no longer a stigma attached to people purchasing second hand items.

The price of a designer handbag, for instance can dramatically drop in price on the second hand market and it can still be in pretty good condition because let’s face it if someone does purchase their dream handbag from a store they are going to look after it!

No wonder fashion conscious people are homing in on the used designer item market. And why wouldn’t they? They have nothing to lose. Hey, if you can get that designer bag that you have always wanted and get it at a fraction of the price then go for it!

Glambags Market offers buyers the chance to get their fave designer items at a much lower price than it would cost brand new. So check out our website and see if we have anything you like!


Here are a few of the used designer items we have listed on Glambags Market.


Who is Glambags Market?

All about Glambags Market, Used designer items

Glambags Market is a new online marketplace exclusively for authentic designer items.

Let me tell you how we began….

I have always loved designer items (especially handbags) and so I started buying and selling handbags a few years ago. I used sites such as eBay and others to sell my items and for a while it was fine, although I started to become frustrated with these sites.

These are some of the reason why:

  •  My items became lost within sites such as eBay
  • I did not want to have to send my items to companies before I could list my items
  • I found some buyers were just out to scam sellers out of their items (would you believe! I will go into more detail about this in a future blog)
  • On some sites buyers had lost all faith in sellers (even honest ones) due to the people selling fakes

I came to the realisation that somewhere was needed for people to sell their designer items. Somewhere where people could be trusted. A sort of online community.

And I came up with the idea for Glambags Market.

What sets us apart from the other designer selling sites I hear you ask….

Well our main difference is we allow our sellers to have complete control of their items. We allow our sellers to list their items themselves. Now don’t get me wrong, we don’t just allow anything to be listed on our site, we authenticate each item that is listed and anything that is found to be fake is removed immediately.
