One of the most frequently asked questions I get is “how do you afford all of those designer bags” or “where can I buy designer bags that aren’t brand new”. My designer handbag collection truthfully didn’t start until I turned 30 and since then, it’s become an obsession! It’s true what they say, once you have one you’ll want many more!

I started with the traditional Louis Vuitton GM. It is the perfect size bag if you work and need to pack a ton of stuff for the day. I walked in to the Louis Vuitton store so excited and bought this bag brand new while in Vegas! While that was fun and enjoyable and I’m so thankful for the memory, I am kind of slapping myself now that I know what I know about the eBay Authenticate program! Did you know that you can get brand new and gently used designer bags on eBay that have been authentically verified by industry experts?! They guarantee that any bag you buy through the eBay Authenticate program is legit the real deal! They stand behind this to the point that if it isn’t, and you catch it, they will give you DOUBLE your money back! Hearing this I was floored, and I honestly couldn’t wait to put it to the test myself.

Buying an authentic designer bag on eBay

At the RewardStyle conference back in the beginning of April, I stopped by the eBay booth to learn more about this Authenticate program only to fall in LOVE with a Fendi bag! Attaching the picture below – it was love at first sight. As the Ariana Grande song goes, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it”! That is the reality of how things went down. The reps working the eBay booth informed me that this Fendi bag would be listed back on eBay once the conference was over, and I stalked it until I saw it (insert happy dance here).

The bag arrived in an elegant black box with a card verifying its authenticity! It was so beautifully packaged that I honestly felt as though I had ordered it from the Fendi website itself.

From order to arrival the process took about a week and could not have gone smoother!  I am over the moon about my bag, and I ended up saving about $1300 by purchasing it from the eBay Authenticate Program.

Selling an authentic designer bag on eBay

Perhaps you might be sitting on the opposite side of the fence right now where you have a ton of designer bags that you no longer want, and you have your eye on others you’d like instead! You can also SELL your designer bags on eBay too! All you have to do is start by listing the bag you wish to sell by selecting “Sell with eBay Authenticate”. You would then ship your bag to the team of experts to check over (at which time they will decide if it is truly an authenticate designer bag). Once they verify you literally do nothing! They photo it, they complete the listing and decide what it should priced at, and up the bag goes for sale! Something else super exciting is now until May 31, 2019, eBay is only taking 10% of the sale of authentic designer bags! That is such a great deal and huge savings!

Again, I absolutely LOVE my new Fendi bag! If you are in the market for a first time designer bag Louis Vuitton is definitely the best and easiet to track down in my opinion! I am loving this Louis Vuitton neverfull and it appears to be in such great shape! I also own this Louis Vuitton Bloomsbury bag and this I purchased used in the past and it has been one of my absolute favorites to carry!

Here are some of the other great quality bags under the Authenticate Program you should check out:

I hope you enjoyed this post and find yourself the perfect bag, or found it easier to start the process of selling one you no longer want!
