Designer Handbags: Hidden Cash in Your Closet

Braswell & Son buys designer handbags

She is a reminder of your first, intoxicating trip to Paris. Ah, the soldiered London Plane trees standing at attention against a pale silver and blush sky along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées… It was your “all yellow” phase, when your Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 handbag in Tassil yellow was a sublime mix of sunshine and Audrey Hepburn. But now, to you she seems less sunshine and more Minion—so she sits alone, on the top shelf of the closet, hiding safely in her dust bag…

So, what’s a wise and resourceful woman to do?

How about selling your pre-owned designer handbag to Braswell and Son, because we’re buying! Vintage luxury handbags remain some of the most sought after merchandise on the market. Sell your bag for cash, or trade up to something that better fits your current fashion sensibility and lifestyle.

Not all pawnbrokers are created equal. Braswell and Son is a boutique broker with a passion for high-end accessories. As a preferred dealer in pre-owned and vintage luxury brands, we represent Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Hermès and Prada, just to name a few. Our professional staff is carefully trained to identify pieces as authentic, as well as provide accurate appraisals so clients can be confident they are receiving fair value for their items.

Ready to sell?

To get the most out of your pre-loved designer bag, you will need to properly prepare it. Remove all of your items and gently clean both inside and outside surfaces, taking care to follow recommendations appropriate for the material. Note that some leathers will naturally develop a “patina” from contact with the skin, adding character and acting as a unique identifier of a genuine piece. Providing receipts, original packaging, dust bags or certificates of authenticity will help you secure the best offer for your bag.

Dealing in vintage luxury designer handbags has been a cornerstone of Braswell and Son’s retail and cash advance business since 1979. We offer professional, discerning service, and guarantee you’ll get the best return on your high-fashion investment. Don’t sell yourself short—maybe you have hidden cash hiding in your closet!
