Sell / Consign
Madison Avenue Couture is one of the leading buyers of Hermes and Chanel handbags and accessories in the secondary market. We prefer to purchase store fresh, pristine bags. In addition to outright purchases, we accept bags on consignment and as partial trade for a bag we have in stock.
Our cash payment price is based on an algorithm that takes into consideration the popularity of the style, item condition, estimated time to sell the bag, the age of the bag, among other factors. All purchase prices are negotiated on an item by item basis but typically we pay between 60% and 80% of the market price, depending on the dollar value of the item.
Bags consigned with us have the potential for a greater payout than outright purchase and may be a preferable option for those having store fresh bags seeking to maximize the return on their bags. Most used bags are taken only on consignment or toward a trade of a bag we have in stock. Used bags must be in mint or near mint condition consistent with the quality expectations of the Madison Avenue Couture customer.
