Tips for Buying Designer Handbags Online

Sharing my tips for buying both new and vintage designer handbags online. Who to trust, how to spot fakes and tips on getting the best price.

ADVERTISING/LINKS
Most of the below (assume all) links are AFFILIATE LINKS and by making a purchase via these links we will earn a small percentage of commission, which means that we can keep creating content for you guys to watch. Most of these links will use cookies but will depend on the retailer and your browser preferences. 

Anything sent to me on a complimentary basis from a brand will be marked with '[AD-PR Product]' as this counts as a form of advertising.

(Also note, the finishing wipe listed above can also be used as a primer so no need to buy a primer separately)
CUTICLE OIL https://amzn.to/3bOBYoa
GEL POLISH BY MEANAIL IN 'MORNING VIBES' https://amzn.to/2KoOdww (I think due to Brexit most Meanail products have been removed from Amazon UK 🙈, I bought last year before Brexit, but MYGEL by Mylee is also cruelty free and really awesome with lots of colours to choose from)
HAND WASH https://apprl.com/al/66eX/

FIND A (CRUELTY FREE) STARTER SET (INCLUDING LAMP BUT MINUS NAIL FILES) HERE FOR UNDER £60 https://amzn.to/38MwCrD OR THE UPGRADED VERSION WITH A BETTER LAMP HERE FOR UNDER £90 https://amzn.to/3il5Xpd

I started to make the change to Cruelty Free beauty in 2019 and found it much easier than I thought it would be. If you are also starting to make the change then might I recommend the following resources as I found/still find these sites really useful when understanding what Cruelty Free means and which brands are Cruelty Free:

◾️WHAT I WAS WEARING◾️

◾️SITES/APPS TO SELL ON◾️
- eBay 
- Depop (app)
- Vinted (fashion only) 
- Shpock
- Facebook Marketplace (best for home stuff, furniture etc)
- Vestiaire (best for designer/luxury goods)
- The Real Real (best for designer/luxury goods for those of you in the US)
- Poshmark (US & Canada)

◾️USEFUL EQUIPMENT◾️
- Camera Tripod with phone attachment & shutter remote https://amzn.to/3ns4ePO

⭐️ EXTRA TIPS ⭐️

⭐️ Have expensive/designer coats dry cleaned before selling (and write this in the description box). The freshness will entice buyers to buy or place a higher bid.
⭐️ Fix any minor faults on clothing where possible. Hole in a coat pocket? Missing button? etc. Some buyers might be a bit lazy and if they see a fault that they know they would have to fix then they will be less likely to place a bid or a higher bid.
⭐️ Useful hashtags when sharing your listings/clear-outs online on social media:
