- Ann's Fabulous Finds - Ann and her team are so friendly and helpful, and sell a huge range of items from designer bags to jewelry to watches to shoes. If you have any questions, shoot her an e-mail... and she'll respond ASAP in a great, customer-service oriented manner.
- HG Bags - The owner, Erica, is fantastic and sells brand new designer bags from Balenciaga, YSL, Chloe, and Proenza Schouler as well as other items like Balenciaga jackets and occassionally designer shoes. She also resells pre-owned bags (in good to excellent condition) and offers a pretty attractive payout. One thing to note, Erica does not actually consign items - she purchases them outright and sends you immediate payment.
- Yoogi's Closet - This is another consignment option, but I've found you don't make as much with them as you would with other consignors. This is a great site to buy pre-owned bags from, since they price items a little lower, and they also have a great return policy if you don't like your purchase.
SELLING BAGS YOURSELF
For many years, I only sold things myself. I did this because consignment shops tend to take a decent cut of your selling price, and I wanted to keep as much of the proceeds as possible. After years of selling my stuff on eBay, I recently swore them off after dealing with some really sketchy buyers. Sometimes you get great buyers that are amazing to work with. Other times, you end up with buyers that have unrealistic expectations, are unreasonably demanding, or use schemes to get additional discounts after they receive your product.
A couple years ago, I found a great alternative called Bonanza. Their pool of buyers and sellers is smaller than eBay, but it's big enough -- and the people using this site seem to be more honest. I've had fantastic experiences with every sale I've made on the site, and their seller fees are much lower than eBay (with free listing, too!).
Keep in mind that selling items yourself on eBay or Bonanza requires photographing your items, creating your own listings, fielding and answering buyers' questions, and sometimes emailing additional photos to potential buyers. If you don't mind doing this, then you will likely net higher profits selling this way, than you would via consignment.
