Designer Bags With The Best Resale Values

Hermes, Birkin, Chanel

A designer or Gucci purse is known for being very expensive. It is not only because of the materials but also because of the time and effort it takes to design them. Also, their manufacturing and shipping costs have risen due to inflation.

If you have one that you want to get rid of or own a business in which they are a main product, it is a good to get an idea of their resale prices.

Below are the top 13 that are currently have the best resale value:

1. The Hermes Birkin

The Birkin is currently the top one. Some designers claim that they’re a better investment than gold. However, they are made from precious materials so they are considered to be collector’s items as soon as they’re out of the factories. Waiting lists are known to take up to six years. If you really want to hit the jackpot in Gucci bag land, try for a black one with gold material.

2. The Chanel Classic Flap

These have been around since the mid-1950’s. That was at the same time it became acceptable for wealthy women to carry purses with shoulder straps. If you happen to have one, you can resell for as much as a 200 percent return of the original price. Yes, you’re reading that right-200 percent. However, it depends on its materials.

3. Chanel Boy

The Chanel Boy was introduced only six years ago. However, it’s price increases up to three times a year. So if you want to add it to your business or your collection, don’t wait to get it.

4. The Neverfull Tote by Louis Vuitton

The Neverfull just celebrated its 10th anniversary. It comes in the popular brown color and LV monograms and also many other different editions. Many designs have been coordinated with famous artists such as Jeff Koons. Most currently retain approximately 85 percent of their original price. Limited editions sometimes go for double.

5. The Goyard St. Louis

The Goyard St. Louis is not one of the most well-known. However, they are currently considered to be a “secret” investment. It has carried a stable fan base since its introduction. They currently sell at approximately 1.3 times the price.

6. The Fendi Baguette

It was invented by Silvia Fendi and majorly promoted by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. It is now enjoying a second wave of popularity and currently re-selling at up to 174 percent of the original price. It’s sales have increased by over 500 percent since last year.

7. The Dior Saddle

It re-launched last summer when online searches for it suddenly spiked at over 900 percent within a two-day period. Surprisingly, they have not remained at the top of the list for being one of the most popular pre-owned bags. However, it’s resale returns are currently among the highest.

8. Classic Box Bag by Celine

Celine products are not associated with the singer, Celine Dion. Instead, they surged in popularity thanks to a designer named Phoebe Philo’s golden time in French fashion. Due to their small and medium sizes, they quickly became associated with understated feminine dressing.

The Classic Box’s most noticeable change is in the clasp. Instead of the old horse-and-carriage of the logo, it has a simple lengthened gold rectangular clasp. It has surged in popularity since last year and interest in the design is expected to keep skyrocketing. It is currently re-selling at less than 1.2 of its original price.

9. Christine Dior Lady Dior

The Lady Dior was introduced in the mid-1990’s and Princess Diana regularly invested in them. It’s key feature is its cannage topstitching, which is a sewing pattern of vertical and diagonal lines. It is also known for its charms that spell D-I-O-R that hangs from the handle. It looks as if it’s currently re-selling at over 800 percent of the original price.

10. The Prada Galleria

The Prada was officially called the Saffiano Lux bag. The Prada line was originally created by Mario Prada. It is known for being waterproof, having a spacey interior and looking suitable for office jobs. It looks as if it’s reselling between a fourth and 110 percent of its original price.

11. Fendi’s Peekaboo

This is another by Silvia Fendi named after her favorite childhood game. It was introduced 10 years ago and its popularity peaked in around 2014. The Peekaboo’s main feature is the easy-to-open pouch secured by a clasp for quick access. It appears to be re-selling at a fourth of its price but its popularity does not appear to be declining.

12. The Gucci Soho

The Soho remains highly popular. It is a good investment if you’re a collector and plan to hang onto it for a few years. It re-sells for up to 80 percent of its retail price. The Soho is brand-new so there’s no telling how it in particular is going to do. However, since Gucci is a longtime household name, it is predicted to be successful.

13. Chanel 2.55

The Chanel 2.55 has been a bestseller since the mid-1950’s. Currently, it re-sells for over 50 percent of its original price once it’s a few years old. So this is also a good one to have if you sell designer bags for business. It comes in a broad range of colorful fabrics and a timeless gold chain.

When investing in a Gucci purse for resale, you can’t afford not to choose carefully. You need to get the right one for yourself or your business. If you run a business that includes Gucci bags, you want to invest in something that will probably sell very quickly such as a Dior or a Chanel. If you personally collect designer purses, you want to get something that you will be able to use for a few years and then resell them for a good return price.

Handling designer purses is also not without its risks. Since they’re very expensive, that means that those working for the black market would also love to snitch one. As a result, you will need to keep your bag on you at all times.

Doing business with designer bags is a lot like handling stocks. You could either gain or lose a lot of money. Like stock trends, what’s popular today may not be so tomorrow and vice versa. As a result, your best bet is to stick with those that are already household names, such as Celine and Chanel.
