LUXURY BAG AUTHENTICATION
We pride ourselves in authentic luxury items. In order to protect our customers from purchasing a replica, we REQUIRE that ALL designer handbags (wallets & pouches too) such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci & Bottega Veneta are accompanied by proof of purchase at the time of consignment.
Authenticity cards are not accepted as a form of authentication
because many times they are replicated with faux bags, as are serial numbers.
If you no longer have your receipt, you can typically call your place of purchase & ask to have a receipt reprinted. If that is not an option, you may obtain a Certificate of Authentication from authenticatefirst.com - do the legwork yourself or have us do it for a $30 fee per piece. (Hermés bags have an $80 authentication cost.)
For other info, please check out our blog post about designer bags HERE!
NOTE: We do not authenticate bags & accessories for customers who are not interested in consigning the items with us. If you are curious if a bag you purchased online or from a vintage/second-hand store, please use the website provided above or check about authentication options with the design house.
