I have never bought from a consignment shop before but there is one near to my job and the other day while walking by I noticed the most gorgeous mono Alma in the window. The patina on this thing is amazing. A beautiful honey color. The price tag on it was $700. I'm thinking that's a little high for a used mono alma. I didn't go inside b/c I was afraid I would buy on the spot.

Can you lovely ladies who have way more LV experience than me give me your opinion on whether you think this is a fair price for a used mono Alma?

Wayyyy too much. I don't have any experience at consignment stores but at that price for not much more you can get a brand new one.

1.) Go in without any cash/cards and check how used it is.
2.) If you like it, go back and haggleeeeeeeeee!

ok good. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy. The reason I love it so much is the patina makes it seem like it's kind of broken in and I don't have to worry as much as with a new mono Alma. That's what is holding me back from buying a new one. All the vachetta on the bottom scares me.

Some consignment sellers probably don't understand the pricing scale and just assume because it's authentic it has to be worth a certain price range.

Too much.

Thanks everyone. I took a closer look through the window this morning and the leather on the bottom shows some wear. And the tag said $750, not $700! I'll pass

For pricing questions, it's best to take a look at completed items on eBay to see what is the market value of the bag in question.

Hopefully you'll be able to snag one in the future ! :yes:
