If you’ve followed me for awhile or are a new follower (Welcome!), you know/will know that I love handbags. I’ve been a handbag gal forever – when I was little, I used to beg my mom to buy a new purse. I always loved switching them out to match different outfits.  As I’ve gotten older, I’ve fallen in love with designer handbags – from the leather used to the quality of stitching to the look – I just enjoy them so much.

As I’ve collected a few, I’ve started to realize there are a few that I wear all the time and a few that sit on my shelf in my closet. Similar to how we purge our closets in Spring, I had a handbag purge the last few weeks to organize my shoe/handbag shelf.

Well, there are two handbags that I’m selling – my Celine Phantom Leather bag and my Tory Burch cross body. I’m selling my Celine bag on eBay and my Tory Burch bag on If you are interested or have any friends who are, please share this post – both bags are posted at a fair price.

Below, I’m going to share how to decide which designer reseller is best to use when selling your handbags:

  1. Trendlee and Fashionphile. I love purchasing lightly used designer bags from Trendlee – they are always authentic and easy to work with. If you are interested in selling your designer handbag with Trendlee or Fashionphile, you’ll have to provide information on  your bag, submit to their sites, and then they will offer you a price for your bag. Once you accept that offer, you will receive payment within a few days. Super easy!! And you don’t have to deal with selling your bag – they handle it all. However, the price you want for your bag may not be the price they can provide, given their services – they handle the selling, shipping, etc.
  2. Tradesy. I haven’t purchased anything on Tradesy but they have some quality designer bags, including Tory Burch (Trendlee doesn’t sell Tory).  With Tradesy, you list your bag on their site by providing all the details they need, they recommend a price for your item based on what you bought it for, and once your bag sells, you’ll receive your cash. Keep in mind – they do take a 17.8% commission on your bag so something to consider when you are selling.
  3. eBay. eBay is similar to Tradesy, where you post details of your bag, your listing posts, and once your item sells, you will get paid out. However, eBay doesn’t seem to have a set commission they take from your purchase – they have taxes and fees that they put on your purchase based on how you sell it. If you sell your item using PayPal, then they will take around 3% so that is something to keep in mind as you sell your item.

I highly recommend all 4 of these resellers based on my experience buying and selling on them – choosing the right seller depends on what you are selling and how much time and effort you want to put into the sale.
