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?
  2. hi there, well there's not just one... see that thread, 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.
