Happy Monday! I am so excited to announce my partnership with Rebag, a company that purchases pre-owned designer and luxury handbags. The process to sell a bag is sooooo simple!
- Visit the Rebag Website or download the app and use the code “LeslieRosner”. You can also click the Rebag link in the menu bar at the top of my blog and it will take you straight to the website!
- Upload at least six photos of each bag you want to sell. You will need to include a photo of the serial code for Chanel and the blind stamp for Hermes.
- Within ONE business day, you will receive a guaranteed price quote from the Rebag buying team! That is a super quick response time!
- If you choose to accept the quote, Rebag will either provide valet pick up or send you a pre-paid shipping box.
- Once the bag is in house, Rebag will authenticate and do a quality check on the item you sent. If every thing is “A-Okay” you will get paid via check or direct deposit!
My favorite thing about selling with Rebag is that there is no consignment. They differ from companies like The Real Real, Poshmark, Tradesy, etc. in that there are no wait times to get paid! Rebag purchases everything outright so the process only takes between 2-7 business days. It’s fast, transparent, and there are no fees.
In terms of quoting, Rebag has a team of ten buyers that do a highly competitive analysis when quoting bags. They take into account a number of factors such as brand, style, condition, current resale market, and their current inventory and then they provide a quote based off that.
As a long-time seller on Poshmark I can tell you honestly that selling with Rebag is the best way to go because you are selling to professionals that sincerely value luxury items…. and you don’t have some random buyer offering you $50 for a bag that you listed at $400! And trust me, that actually happens lol!!!
Okay so if you know just one thing about me, it’s probably that I love to buy second hand designer items. While there are so many things to love about thrift shopping, my biggest pet peeve is when consignment shops cross out the brand logo with a permanent marker. Or even worse…. they write all over the bottom of a beautiful, RARE pair of soft soled Christian Dior heels!
I don’t know if these people simply don’t give two craps about what’s expensive and what’s not (these shoes retail for over $1000!) or if they’re just bitter that someone else is going to end up taking them home. When I spotted these beauties I knew I had to have them, marker stains or not! I figured I could find a solution via “shoe collector who has been through this before” but all I could find on the wonderful internet were suggestions that involved scrubbing with cleaning supplies. There was NO way I was about to put any kind of chemical on these soles so on a rather risky whim, I came up with a better solution.
Using a fine grit nail file was a solution made in Heaven! I simply rubbed the file back and forth over the red permanent marker stains and VOILA! You would never even know those marks were there. (Looking at the photo above, let me just point out that if whoever was marking these was trying to circle the size, their circling skills are in need of some desperate help.) Altogether, it took me about 10 minutes total to file the bottoms of the shoes and I am so unbelievably happy with the results!
If you’ve tried this method of removing permanent marker from the bottom of soft soled shoes or you’ve tried another successful solution, I’d love to hear from you! ALSO if you have any tips on how to clean the inside of a Louis Vuitton bag, I have a second hand Speedy 30 that DESPERATELY needs a good scrubbing LOL!
