We sell premium designer bags, clothes, shoes and accessories by designer fashion houses such as Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Balenciaga, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. We will also take on trend, seasonal pieces from contemporary brands such as Ganni, Rixo, Bella Freud and Mother of Pearl.
We do not have a set commission rate. We are flexible for outstanding pieces and large collections. Our regular rate of commission is circa 50% of the final sale price of the item. However for brand new pieces by Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Hermes we can reduce this. Should you wish us to set up a bespoke commission rate for you please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/whatsapp us on 07801535153.
We want to ensure that you get the maximum amount you can for your piece whilst still ensuring a successful sale. We consider many different variables before approaching you with a suggested value including but not exclusively: the original price paid, the condition, the demand for and the rarity of the item. We have been in the preloved designer fashion industry for ten years and have a great deal of knowledge about the price a customer will pay for each designer piece.
Once approved, you can drop items into either of our locations during our opening hours, or safely send them to our Chelsea store via a courier. We can collect 20 or more items FOC in person for sellers within a 15 mile radius of either of our locations in Ascot, Berkshire and Chelsea, London. For those who live farther afield we will collect 10 or more items via courier for free, UK wide.
If your item doesn't sell within the two month sale period, you can either choose to reduce the sale price further, collect the item or bare the cost of the item being returned. You can also choose to send it to charity.
We pay at the end of the month for all the items sold in that month via BACS. Please note due to having a return window, for online orders you will paid on the first opportunity after the seven day returns window has expired via BACS.
It is against the law to sell fake goods and we, therefore, take any attempt to re-sell fake goods through us very seriously. We inspect every item before it is listed, not after. For this reason we have a whole page dedicated to authentication which can be found here.
