5 TIPS ON BUYING VINTAGE BAGS

5 Tips on buying vintage bags

1. Be In The Know: Know the company or person you are purchasing from. Are they reputable?  Are there any reviews or customer feedback notes that you can reference?

2. Do Your Research: Try to avoid impulse buying and really do your research on the type of bag you want and need. Using searches like the “Find It” service at Portero will help you find the exact bag you are looking for, preventing buyers remorse. Also, visit handbag stores to see the bag you want in person {if it’s still available} and really inspect the bag for unique markings. Also, pay very close attention to pay attention to return policies.

3. Authenticity Guarantee: Do not purchase a handbag from anyone who will not offer 100% authenticity guaranteed or your money back. Bottom line.

4. Pictures Please: Always inspect the photos of the bag and look for general wear and tear. You don’t want to be surprised when the vintage bag shows up at your door and has a few scratches you were unaware of. Always ask for pictures of all angles, sides and inside of the bag.

5. Safety First: The absolute worst thing that can happen is that you get scammed! Confirm the level of security that is offered to ensure a safe buying experience.
