Handbags, my friends, are serious business. Now, before you go scoffing at that sentence, take a minute to consider how much a luxury handbag goes for or the insane process that people will go through in order to procure a Hermes Birkin or Kelly bag. (Seriously: it involves the whims of sales people, knowing the right person, months of waiting, and then dropping tens of thousands of dollars.) The highest of high-end handbags are not only beautiful and well made but also a serious investment, considering the fact that even a secondhand one can go for more than most Americans make in a year.
Take, for example, the pre-owned Hermes elephant grey and black bi-color Porosus crocodile special order Birkin that recently sold for $97,000 on the luxury handbag site Baghunter. Yup, you read that right: pre-owned and went for almost $100k. The bag was procured by Baghunter through their new VIP Club, which launched in November of last year and gives special Baghunter clients the right of first refusal on the rarest bags that comes through their door. VIP Club members also get a personal shopper, the sourcing of any luxury bag, and other special benefits.
But even non-VIP Club members can rest assured that the pre-owned luxury handbags they find on Baghunter are not only authentic but also of top quality. That’s because the site offers authentication service as well as detailed photos of every bag, so that buyers know exactly what they’re getting before they throw down the plastic. They also offer a Bag Bespoke service for people who want to customize their bags with Swarovski crystals or bespoke artwork, because some people just wanna stand out from the crowd!
“We thrive on innovative ideas, supreme customer service, and creating a brand that is both trusted and recognizable,” Baghunter founder Evelyn Fox told KillerStartups. “The excitement in this business is generated by the iconic items we deal with. Every day we deal with fashion’s equivalent to masterpieces of art, making them accessible to people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to experience the joy of holding a Birkin or a Kelly in their arms. This, coupled with the financial and investment opportunities presented by these bags, makes every day in this business more exciting than the last.”
Acquiring a serious investment isn’t something that anyone should do on their own, whether that investment is a house, a car, or a luxury handbag. If you’re in the market for a rare and beautiful bag, head over to Baghunter and let them find the perfect one for you.
