Can I Be Sure My Item Is Authentic?
Buying from us guarantees the purchase of an authentic product. Every item found on our site is guaranteed authentic. Each item is double or triple authenticated. We access our product from vetted sources and usually know the original origin of purchase, which substantially reduces the risk of fraudulent merchandise. Since we receive each item we sell, we inspect every item to verify authenticity and condition. Every Hermès Birkin and Kelly is authenticated by our supplier, by us and by at least one third party authenticator.
And each item carries our money-back guarantee in the event that a purchased item is found not to be authentic. Proof that the item is not authentic must come from one of the trusted authenticators listed in our Authentication section.
Why Do You Have A Final Sale Policy On Most ItemsMost of our items are in pristine condition coming to us direct from the brands' boutiques. While in our possession, these items are carefully maintained in a temperature-controlled environment and in their original boxes. They are only taken out for inspection, photography and packing, and protective gloves are worn at every step.
Once an item is received by the recipient, we can no longer control the way the item is handled. Even the slightest change in condition, like a smudge or the loss of plastic on the foot of a Hermes bag, substantially reduces the value of the item.
Our commitment to our customers is that they receive the item in the condition described on our website. Therefore, by imposing a "final sale" policy, we ensure that all our items remain in the pristine condition as described.
We accept returns on items classified as mint or excellent condition. Items must be returned in the same condition as sold. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of receipt of delivery of the item that you wish to return. We will email you a return authorization. Tracking must be sent so we can monitor the delivery. We reserve the right to reject a return if the item appears to have been used.
