The Online Store To Buy Designer Bags For Less


I visited Japan a few years ago and one of the things I loved the most (apart from the incredible food and everything else Japan has to offer) were the little stores that specialised in top-quality, pre-owned designer items. These little treasure-troves are a godsend for designer-obsessed locals and lucky tourists who snatch sought-after designer items, used gently (and sometimes not at all) for less than the original RRP.

I have now discovered that you no longer need to fly all the way to Japan to experience this type of high-quality shopping for pre-loved designer bags… We have a fantastic option right here at home.

Read on to learn about my latest online love that sells beautiful designer bags for less…

Let’s be honest. We would all really love to have a luxury-filled wardrobe that’s brimming with glorious designer bags. But what we’d like even better is to get them all a lot cheaper. And we most certainly do not want to buy a fake – either deliberately or by accident.

Unless you’ve got absolute squillions to drop on the latest must-have in the boutique itself, the smartest thing to do is buy your designer bag(s) “pre-loved” and pocket the savings.

…More money for shoes!

However, when it comes to luxury purchasing, authenticity and service are pretty much everything.

In a world filled with clever copy-cats, it is too easy to fall prey to a convincing copy if you don’t have your wits with you.

And, if you find an authenticated luxury item you love, who wants to lose that special fuzzy feeling you get when purchasing in the designer boutique itself. Ah, no-one.

We still want the bells and whistles, right?

Having your cake and eating it too has never been easier, thanks to new online store ‘’. Specialising in only the most exclusive and premium condition pre-owned handbags, is fanatical about authenticity and service, making it the premier online destination for pre-owned handbags in Australia.

I was lucky enough to experience making a purchase from, and I can say with certainty that this store is on-track to empty out the wallets of many an Australian designer-label-lover!

Could not wait to take this bag out for a spin!

After much careful deliberation, I decided on the ultra-perfect Celine Trapeze. In a glorious ‘Matisse’ blue, this bag was classic yet quirky, and offered a fresh change from my usual black repertoire.

Despite costing considerably less than the original RRP, the buying experience was smooth and easy. I saved further by avoiding the GST which would have applied if I bought a bag like this overseas.

The Celine arrived a day or so later via courier, complete with original dust bag, luxury packaging and authenticity guarantee. The bag itself was in excellent condition – very close to new, practically flawless.

On the go, with the Celine Trapeze!


I was pleased to find that is not only locally-located, it is run by a fellow fashion lover/entrepreneur who is completely committed to re-creating the luxury experience at accessible prices.

You even have the option of sending your purchase back for a full refund which is pretty incredible.

So if you’re looking for a designer handbag, or just love to dream, bookmark I do recommend it.
