Planning to buy a pre-owned designer bag for yourself? Do you have doubts if you have made the right decision? No worries. Here is a guide to help you get through the process seamlessly.
When we say “pre-owned,” most people in Pakistan think it means buying a secondhand or used item. *rolls eyes*
It’s true the word “used” has a negative connotation as compared to pre-owned or pre-loved. That’s why people use the latter terms more in the retail world. However, the real truth is, even pre-owned doesn’t always mean the previous owner has used the item.
A product is termed pre-owned if you buy it from a previous owner instead of the brand store or website. Well, it can still be brand new, coming with all the original tags. What’s the difference? The price!
Pre-owned designer handbags come with a fairly marked down price compared to the original retail or manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP). Sometimes, there is almost an 80 to 90% reduction in the price. Isn’t that just wonderful?
If you plan to buy a pre-owned designer bag, you have come to the right place! This guide will clear up much of your confusion regarding pre-owned bags and where to find the best designer handbags in Pakistan.
So, let’s get started!
While some people may think these two terms refer to the same thing, there is a marked difference between them in various industries. Let’s look at some of these sectors.
First and foremost, the automobile industry. We are all familiar with buying certified pre-owned vehicles that have been repaired and thoroughly inspected before making them accessible to the general public. These vehicles are also covered with the manufacturer’s warranty and are almost as good as new.
Used vehicles, on the other hand, point to an entirely different class of vehicles. These can actually be called “secondhand” as their previous owner has fairly used them. Because of this reason, there is a marked difference in the price too. These are the most affordable cars you can get your hands on.
Who is not familiar with the terms “refurbished” and “open box” when buying a laptop, an iPad, or an Xbox. The same applies to these items so that refurbished laptops or computers are not the same as used ones.
Anyone who wants to save huge amounts of money on electronic devices they have the option to buy refurbished or open-box items, which are almost as good as new.
What is the reason behind buying refurbished instead of brand new? Technology moves faster than we think and to keep up with this ever-evolving machinery, the best thing to do is try your hands on refurbished or open-box items instead of wasting money on brand new devices.
And last, but certainly not the least, designer handbags! While some brands come under the category of “accessible luxury,” many of the famous brands we are familiar with are way out of range for most people. These include handbag brands like Burberry, Balenciaga, Hermes, Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, BVLGARI, and Chanel.
What’s so special about these handbags that make them so expensive? Well, there’s much more than just the brand name, if you ask me.
First off, they are incomparable to other bags when it comes to craftsmanship. Secondly, the materials they are made of are expensive and long-lasting. These include original calf leather, cowhide, and mountain goat skin – among many other things.
And finally, these bags are called luxury for a reason. They come in such unique designs and offer such amazing functionality that you cannot go back to the “unbranded” days once you get a chance to wear one of these.
Women who cannot afford original designer bags often spend money on designer replicas or fakes that look like famous branded bags. But in reality, these replicas aren’t even close to what we call a true luxury handbag.
Why spend money on low-quality replicas or counterfeit handbags when you have the option to buy a previously owned designer handbag at a great price?
It’s time we Pakistani women let go of the stigma attached to “used” items. Remember, these bags are pre-owned, but that doesn’t mean they always come in a used condition. Most of these bags have a marked down price because;
There can be many reasons for buying a pre-owned bag other than just saving money. You may have your eyes on a discontinued bag from a famous designer. Or you may be looking for a limited edition bag, which is no longer in stock at the brand website/store.
These branded bags are known to last a lifetime. If you buy one, you can actually spend the rest of your life with it. However, a much better option is to trade it off with another designer handbag with the same premium quality, amazing design, and unmatched functional value.
Yet another reason for buying a pre-owned handbag is to buy an affordable yet classy gift for a loved one. You have several options to explore, and you can easily make a decision based on your budget and requirements. And if you have a friend who loves luxury designer handbags, what could be a better gift?
