I’ve been saving up for a Celine micro belt bag and am trying to determine if I should get it pre-loved or buy new. It’ll be my first luxury bag so I’m leaning towards new, but at the same time I can save almost $1K buying pre-loved. Honestly, I’ve never spent this much on a single non-necessity and am having some sticker shock. I know this probably differs from person to person but what would you all recommend based on your experiences?

I’ve also started to consider some luxury bag purchases and am looking primarily on the second hand market for financial and environmental sustainability purposes. It’s also worth considering international travel and detax. For example, if you have a trip to Europe planned in the next few months or year, you may be able to get a better overall price given the exchange rate and tax back.

That’s such a great idea, I don’t have a trip planned but I’ve always wanted to go to France and it would be such a great gift for my mom to take her with me 🥺

I’m actually a little scared of buying secondhand luxury with the amount of fakes that are on the market, they slip through authentication on these sites all the time - so I just save for new bags.

Same...I’m also eyeing the Celine belt bag, though in nano!

If you saved up already and really love it, I’d go for the whole enchilada & get a new one. It’s a milestone and rewarding purchase. Congrats! It’s such a beautiful bag.

I buy secondhand for the majority of my bags. When I’m bored of them, I get back pretty much 80-90% the cost when consigning. The consignment prices are about half the MSRP prices UNLESS it’s Chanel/Hermes. It’s a no brainer for me

How much is it pre loved?

The ones I’ve seen with that level of discount are marked as “Very Good” on Fashionphile, so some tarnishing, creasing, and noticeable wear.

I got the micro from Amuze for 1800 last month, but it’s definitely a luck thing since they usually have a few in stock and sell out pretty fast, so maybe try your luck?
