TrueFacet Holiday Shops Sale

If you love purses, you’re not alone. There’s a reason this accessory has never gone out of fashion. Not only are they incredibly convenient, they’re also a fantastic way to show off your personal style. If you adore the look of luxury, you’re going to want to carry a designer purse. If your budget doesn’t quite match your love for the finer things in life, or if you simply like a great deal, you’re going to want to shop for pre owned luxury handbags. This way, you get a purse you love for a price you love even more.

That being said, there are scammers and less-than-reputable people out there who are more than willing to try to pass off a fake as the real thing. How can you tell if a bag is authentic? It’s not as impossible as it may seem, even if you’re shopping online. We put together a few tips for you so you can buy pre owned luxury handbags with confidence.

3 Expert Shopping Tips

A great option is to choose pre owned luxury handbags. The purses are still expensive, but cost much less than a brand new alternative. However, choosing the right bag can be tricky. Here’s what you need to know:

Expect To Pay Between 30% And 70% Less

Depending on the exact quality, you can expect to pay anywhere from 30% up to 70% less than the original price. If you’re paying more than that, you’re not getting a good deal. If you’re seeing an even greater “sale” than that, chances are good the item is either not authentic or was stolen. Sorry, but a 90% off deal really is too good to be true!

Check for Authenticity

There are some things you should check before you actually buy the purse, in order to avoid paying hundreds or even thousands on a fake product. Pay close attention to the details, like materials and stitching. Different brands have different tricks. For example, Louis Vuitton has an authenticity stamp in every bag. They also come with a date code that makes it easy to check if it is real or not.

Get a Guarantee 

In order to truly have peace of mind, you’re going to want to purchase from a retailer that stands behind you. Before an item goes live on the TrueFacet marketplace, we process it through our system and look for flags that could deem an item inauthentic. These flags include pricing, text in the description, and other areas assessed. We also monitor sellers to see if they have been flagged before or have sold products that were not up to quality. TrueFacet therefore promises that if you are not fully satisfied with the authenticity of your purchase, we will be here to help you and work with the seller of the item to accept a return of the item and refund your money back.
