I know.. My bf loves it too, so he's convincing me not to sell it as we speak.
My mind is set though..:P

LOL... that's funny. I can't sell mine cause it was a gift. I have my eye on the Galliera. Keep us posted on what you plan to do & I hope you get your money worth.

Good-Luck

That is funny, my DH loves the Tivoli as well - I think that's the only reason he's springing for another bag so soon :yahoo:

You also can try www.imagechic.com . Good Luck.
there are alot of consignment storeout there, they do not pay u upfront, will pay u once the purse sold. But they take 30% to 50% of the selling price, I believe is really too much:tdown:

LOL about the woman with the sweaty hands!

It's normal practice to leave the bag so any customers who come in and want to see it, touch every inch of it and model it can decide. I'm guilty of doing this! Since the bag is expensive though, that's why she's not going to give you money up front.

She was willing to give me around $250-$280 for my gucci wallet...either that or leave it and she gets a 15-20% cut if it sells. She still asks for money even if it doesn't sell after a period of time too! After hearing all this stupid stuff, I decided it wasn't worth my time to negotiate with her or use her services.

Hi all!

I haven't seen the Tivoli PM in the store yet; but I just noticed one on Ebay this morning and it caught my eye. I want to bid but since I haven't seen it in real life, I'm not completely clear on the size. Someone in the forum mentioned that it is about the size of the Speedy 25, but in the auction they're listing it as " Approximately 14" by 8" and 6" deep." Is there description accurate? Isn't that significantly larger than the speedy 25??

I checked eluxury for dimensions but the tivoli pm is no longer listed. Any help would be appreciated! :smile:

On a related not, I'm a new mommy and my hubby bought me the batignolles vertical. It's a cute bag, spacious but the straps look a little sloppy to me when I put it over my shoulder... If I get this Tivoli pm I'll probably sell the batignolles... what do you all think???

You will get far more money on Ebay and it will sell quicky, which will more than offset the any fees you are concerned with when compared to selling to a consignmentment shop!

I'd say it is comparable to the speedy 25. That's a 25 in the pics. Average is 14"x8" but if you measure only the base it's more around 12"-13" x 7"-8". The top is where it's 14" and it's fat in the middle where the pleats are which makes it 8". Enlarge the pics to have a better look!

There are a couple of other consignment shops in Yorkville, which is a good demographic to tackle. One's called Second Time Around, on Yorkville Ave., and the other one is L'Elegante on Cumberland. There's also Shoppe D'Or on Cumberland, and Paperbag Princess on Davenport.

L'Elegante and Paperbag Princess take pretty large cuts. They sell at about 66% of retail, and you get 50% of that. In the end, that works out to about 33%. Second Time Around lets you set the price, and they work in a margin there. I haven't tried Shoppe D'Or personally, so I don't know how they work.

Here's the irony: Paperbag Princess is now selling on Ebay.ca too! LOL

Hope that helps!!!
