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 brand new, never used bags, and bags in mint condition.
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, and the age of the bag, among other factors. Typically, we pay between 50% and 70% of the online price, with highly coveted bags potentially having an even higher payout.
Handbag and accessory owners have the option of selling their items outright or consigning to us.

Step 2 – Send The Bag
If you like our estimate, we will send you a contract and a label for shipping. Shipping and insurance are free to you.
All boxes and its contents must be packed securely. We suggest using bubble wrap or plastic recycling bags to reduce risk of damage.
Step 3 – Get Paid
On receipt of the item, we will inspect it, refine the final price, if necessary, and contact you with the final price.
On agreement, you will be paid within one to two business days.
The form of payment is your option but typically payments are done via bank wire, electronic check (ACH) or Paypal.
When submitting a request for an estimate, we also provide an estimated quote for consigning an item.

We recommend consignment for those handbag and accessory sellers who wish to maximize their payout. If you're interested in consigning please use our selling form.
