second hand balenciaga in paris?

  1. hi there! i'm asking all the lovely balenciaga ladies in paris:
    is there a place that you can buy or sell second hand balenciaga purses? or is there any designer second hand shop?
    thanks:flowers:
     
  2. hi there, well there's not just one... see that thread http://forum.purseblog.com/achtung-balenciaga/for-all-the-french-girls-on-tpf-45528.html, badbananagirl posted the adress of a second hand shop where she found several bbags. Also you may want to check WK in the rue du 29 juillet, near colette, I remember seeing a few there two. If you have time on your hands just go to designer second hand shops, there are quite a few on rue de la pompe in the 16th arrondissement, also one on place furstenberg in the 6th, there are surely a lot more I don't know about. Also be careful, I haven't seen a fake in a second hand shop yet but as I know that a designer outlet was selling not so bad fakes, these bags may be around, so watch out :ninja: . If you find anything let us know!
     
  3. Sorry, don't know 2nd hand store carrying b-bags here...
    But agree with olfa : beware the fakes !!!
     
  4. is there a place in london to buy second hand balenciagas? I know the thread was about Paris, but I will be visiting London next week. TIA
     
  5. Danae, just correcting, WK is on the rue du Marche saint honore not 29 juillet
     
  6. thanks a lot olfa!!! do we know anything about the price range?

  8. WOW roo!!
    thanks!! teehee.. will check these out for SURE
     
  9. omg Roo !!!!
    you're a better parisienne than I am ;)
     
  10. Thanks guys- as I said, the list is a couple years old so I am not sure how current those places are.
     
  11. Oooooh ... I'll have to check my "list" too; I've found some real *gems* when I've had time to walk around.

    I've been to WK ... as a matter of fact, I could totally KICK :cursing: :hysteric: :noggin: myself because when there, they had about 3 Balenciaga bags available (Seafoam Twiggy, Lilac City and Rose Weekender) ... all from 2005! At the time, I wasn't too fond of the Lilac or Rose color ... and I'm not crazy about the Twiggy style. However, now that I think about it, I should have bought them anyhow ... they were all about 1/3 of retail!

    The Griff stores are all around France; there were a few on the Cote d'Azur as well.
     
  12. thank you Roo, this is a great list, I may check a couple next time I go home and then update it for everybody here, but that's not until next month, sorry.
     
  13. humm can't remember try to do a search of badbanangirls post cause she mentioned the price of the ones she found
     
  14. oh and Roo thanks so much for the adress list, for the shops I know it's pretty accurate!!
     
  15. Thanks, ladies. 'will check these out in Dec. and will keep you posted if I find anything.
