They used to, I just called and was told that they aren't accepting Coach any longer and that all Coach inventory is "old" inventory. Sorry! I didn't know they stopped taking them :(

Also try Couture USA, they are out of FL and they do accept Coach

Hi BellevueLady--so good to hear you've had no issues selling your bags on the Bay. May I ask please--how long have you been selling and would that include selling LV, Coach and such...? I wanna have a positive frame of mind about selling on the Bay, Bonanza, (online) but as I mentioned earlier (and I know its not with every sale--Thank Goodness) but reading about the buyer scams happening/that have happened to our fellow TPF'ers really is off-putting/sad...

How do you "bullet-proof" yourself (to your best abilities) to ward-off the scammers...? If you'd prefer to PM me with those tips or post for everyone that'd be greatly appreciated--and I believe there are other threads with info like this but would be great to hear your personal tips (recent--if any) if that's okay...Thank You in advance.

I have bought from Couture USA before, not sold but I would consider them if I was planning to consign, the offer a 70/30 which seems reasonable considering all the fees you pay selling on eBay. I found them when I was doing a specific search for a pair of shoes I was looking for, I would buy from them again Thank you for viewing my collection

I collect dolls and many doll collectors buy/sell and trade dolls. Its quite a large community. There is a doll page site that someone created and you can list your dolls to sell there and you can buy. It has a rating system where people leave feedback for good buys/sells etc. there is no fee for selling or buying-its just personal transaction between two people. I've sold and bought several dolls and have had nothing but good experiences...too bad those of us who love Coach bags can't do the same thing--to sell/buy/trade our quality bags

I think this is a great idea and cant see why tpf dont allow it. It would be so much easier when its all trustworthy ladies with the same interest in bags...
I understand there are a lot of scams go on with eBay and it seriously puts me off buying a bag on there...Half the time I dont believe they even send the bag they are showing on their listing.
I would definately buy a bag on eBay though if I KNEW it was from a fellow tpfer...so why cant we do it on this forum?
We could all be safe in the knowledge that we are buying/ selling/swapping from a trustworthy source and... no fees

TPF actually has a "marketplace" where people buy and sell or trade. But I think it got out of hand, and they stopped admitting new members a couple of years ago. Actually I'm not sure if they stopped completely, or if it's just a slow process, but I know there was a very long waiting list. Maybe someone can update us on that?

Please don't think that all tPF members sell genuine merchandise. Not only is it possible for someone to unknowingly sell a fake because they're not experienced with the brand or never had the item authenticated, but there are more than enough crooks on selling and auction sites who claim to be tPF members. Some are - there have been many times when a tPF member has knowingly sold fakes. There's no "honesty check" that you have to pass to join these forums, any slimeball can become a member and hide behind that "tPF member" cover until they're eventually found out. And since most members here don't use the same IDs they use on eBay or other sites, how would you know who's lying and who isn't?

Don't ever depend on something being authentic unless it's been authenticated by one of the specialists here.

I would not recommend eBay for selling Coach ... Their fees are outrageous & buyers are rude!

I had over $50 in fees from them & my stuff went for wayyy less than outlet prices

Absolutely not - in fact dozens of notorious and semi-notorious fakes sellers and other assorted lowlifes have joined these forums and tried to promote their own auctions by asking over and over for authentications of their own listings to increase interest in them, to brag about what a wonderful seller "xxxx" is and what a great deal they got, to deny legitimate accusations by other tPFers about the lowlife's auctions and fake merchandise, etc. Some have even registered under multiple IDs or had friends and relatives register to "shill" their auctions - all of which are completely against forum Rules.

Most of them don't last long. The posters here include some very sharp ladies and gents, and most of these phonies are just plain stupid as well as greedy and think that other people here can't spot what they're doing. It doesn't take long for them to out themselves, and any time one or two or more new members pop up with positive comments about someone who's obviously a scammer, the forum Mods can usually find the connections and ban their collective arses.

I have a few in mint condition bags that I want to direct sell to an online consignment shop. Any suggestions for a reputable one?

I know this question has been asked quite a bit so maybe do a search here and in the eBay threads. I can't answer you (sorry!) but I'm sure someone else can, or you should be able to find the other threads about this.
