What Determines The Value Of A Bag?

BRAND & MODEL

Arguably one of the most important factors in the value of a bag is its make and model. Each brand has their quality and status level, and as we all know, specific models, if scarcer, become iconic and therefore all the more covetable, which has a direct correlation on their value.

MATERIAL

Material will play a key role in your handbag’s value. Some leathers are more expensive and rarer than others, so we’ll asses the material, and its condition, to help us determine what its worth on the current market.

CONDITION

Scratches, damage and any visible wear and tear will impact the value of your item, but don’t let that dissuade you. Depending on the extent and area of damage your bag could still be valuable even if its condition is a bit less than perfect.

QUALITY

Just because something is old doesn’t necessarily make it valuable. The better its condition, the more it’s worth. And remember: no matter what information you find regarding the value of your antique or collectible, it’s only worth as much as someone is willing to pay you for it!

ACCESORIES

Including complementary add–ons and coordinating accessories with your handbag can often increase the value when it comes to selling.

ORIGINAL PROOF OF PURCHASE

The original box, dust cover, receipt, certificate or other papers that are associated with the authenticity of the handbag will surely add value to it. It’s always good to hang on to them, especially if you intend to sell your bag in the future.
