Wholesale isn't the right word. A lot of these people go to outlets. There is a balenciaga outlet, a chanel outlet, gucci etc.ThankYou, Swanky Mama & Bgaholic....I keep hearing what you have posted, but once again, I would love to know how powersellers on ebay can afford to pay $600, & way up for new retail bags, only to resell them for the same price they paid, or even less...because what I have been told, and what you both are also saying, would confirm that as being the case. Add to the seller's cost, listing fees, & final value fees to ebay & pay pal, and it does not compute..no way!
Maybe the word "wholesale" is offensive or tacky, but whatever the preferred term or label; These sellers are absolutely buying from a source that enables them to resell at below retail. A well guarded secret, for sure
Anyway, thanks for your posts!
The only company that I think doesn't have one is LV.
They probably wait until super sales at the outlets that most people don't have access to (these designers don't have many outlets) and then resell on ebay.
