This is one of my favorite handbags. I wear it to work because it has the right size that fits my lunch box.:-) I got it in one of my favorite consignment shops in Geneva. I like buying pre-owned designer handbags- first, you are recycling and second, you pay a fraction of its original price. The bags are usually in a perfect condition and with a certificate of authenticity. I know that some people mind buying second-hand accessories and clothes. I can understand the clothes sensitivity, but as you don’t wear a handbag on your skin it does not bother me.
Anyhow, for those who are interested, I decided to list my favorite stores. I have promised to several of my friends that I will share my secret locations, so here they are:
Vestiaire Collective– online consignment store. Probably the most famous one.
In Geneva: GM Boutique (3, Avenue Pictet-de-Rochemont, Eaux-Vives) and Vintage Garderobe (11, Rue Henri-Mussard, Champel). Both have great selection of handbags, clothes and accessories from Chanel, Fendi, LV, Balenciaga,Hermès, Cartier and Christian Louboutin.
Do you shop at vintage stores, second hands or consignment stores?
