Hi ladies, I have a question about your thoughts on slightly used bbags, will you pay full retail price for a used bag (even though it shows minimal wear) or do you feel like it should come to you brand new for that price? I am not talking about highly coveted colors like apple green, magenta, or eggplant (those bags demand much higher prices) I am talking about this year's colors. Thanks for any opinions!

It really depends on the condition. Gently used can mean so many different things. If the corners were dirty and scuffed I probably wouldn't pay full price. But if it's a color I really want then that's different! =)

For some reason - I think that I would accept slight damage or even consider it as attractive on a black or darker coloured bag but not on a bright / pretty coloured one. For some reason, my mind's eye sees them as more pristine.

Thanks everyone, I think I just need to decide if it is a color I can't live without!

You Can't Buy Class
i would rather just buy it brand new from Neimans. it doesnt make any sense to me to pay full retail price, more sometimes, for a bag that is: 1. used and 2. not a rare color

You must buy the bag. It is not a want, it is a need!

i think that if is not a rare colour, i'd not buy it used and for an high price. You my find it still in stores....
But, if it is my HG, and i can't find it in the stores, then, i may think to buy it at any price :)))

If it's a current season color bag, I would not buy used one with full retail price. You may have to do some searching and waiting but I'd rather wait and get a brand new bag.

I peronally will not buy used on anything unless I'm getting a good discount. I'd just rather buy new. That being said, there are no colors I'm dying to have.
