What’s hot in women’s purses these days?

Above all else – practicality. Crossbody and hands-free carrying styles top the list of high demand women’s purse requests. An adjustable strap makes a bag customizable for the buyer, and allows her to make it longer or shorter to suit her height. Coach round top satchel women's purse

Color is also a great factor in how fast a woman’s purse will sell. A  bright color  or fun pattern adds to the ‘fun factor’ of a handbag and makes it all the more desirable.

Pockets, too add appeal. Everyone has at least one device they need to carry and have quick access to in their purse. Having an easy access, but secure pocket for her cellphone will make a women’s purse the go-to bag she wants to carry every day.

Don’t forget backpacks!

If you truly want to go hands-free, a backpack is a great style of bag to carry everyday. They sell like hotcakes right now as we are deep into the new practical and comfortable COVID lifestyle.

Not everyone knows the word, but every woman knows it when she sees it. Each of us have a style or handbag designer we love. Some women prefer a slouchy and soft lambskin leather that conforms to their side when they carry it, while others like a structured bag that stands up by itself.

Good women’s purses, when well cared for – properly stored when not in use, and conditioned regularly (when appropriate) to keep the leather soft and supple are keys to a long life and successful selling.

When we get women’s purses in for consignment there are a number of things we inspect for. First and foremost, is the condition of the exterior of the handbag, especially the corners and the handles. Those take the most abuse. Some handbags, like Louis Vuitton have trim that naturally deepens in color as it ages and oxidizes. That’s not necessarily a flaw, and won’t prevent a handbag from selling. What we aren’t able to take are bags that are overly worn, have stains in the lining, or have stitching that is coming undone. Some flaws are fixable, but those should be handled before Longchamp Pliage women's purseconsigning.

If you received a bag as a gift, or bought it resale, we can give you a quick evaluation about whether you have an authentic designer handbag or not. We can also send images to our outside authenticator for another opinion, but please understand there is a fee for that, which we must collect up front. We’ll likely ask you a number of questions about the bag to help us determine authenticity. Counterfeit women’s purses are illegal and also are used by many nefarious and harmful organizations to fund some very bad activities.
