Louis Vuitton on Sale???

Yes it's true.
I've found a new site that specializes in pre-owned luxury goods. sells everything from bags to jewelry to accessories and even to housewares. Brands include Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, Cartier and dozens more.

Things I love about the site:
1. Amazing finds, both in terms of the items available and their prices (up to 85% off).
2. Everything is categorized by designer, price point, style of item and even condition of item so you can pinpoint exactly what you want, rather than browse through thousands of items in vein.
3. There's a 1-800 number and a live chat option so that an agent can answer your questions on the spot.
3. They ship to Canada (although they warn that this will entail customs and shipping charges).
Here are some of the finds I saw today:
Louis Vuitton Vintage Monogram Canvas Brown Leather Messenger bag: Retails for $1,590.00, on sale for $530.00. That's a 67% discount.
Hermes Black Crocodile Sac Ring Bag: Regular price $21,800, on sale for $2,516.00. That's a discount of 88%.
Fendi Zucca Monogram Blue Watersnake & Beaded Baguette Handbag: Regular price $2980.00, on sale for $695.00. That's a discount of 77%.

With these deals, I'll definitely be checking out this site regularly!
Happy shopping!
