The best Irish shops to buy pre-loved designer bags online

Buying second-hand is a more sustainable and affordable way to shop designer handbags. These are the trusted retailers offering great options online.

Although the pandemic initially caused a drop in handbag sales, retailers have been reporting an increased demand for pre-owned luxury bags. Customers seem to be drawn to more classic brands and styles, investments that won’t date in a season or two. 

And although not new, designer pre-owned handbags still command high prices, so you want to be absolutely sure that what you’re buying is genuine. This can feel more risky when you can’t go into a shop to see and feel the product yourself, so it’s best to stick to trusted retailers who can verify each bag to guarantee it’s the real deal. Here are a few of our favourites.

The Circular Room, Arnotts

Arnotts’ range of second-hand designer bags was previously only available to shop in-store, but it has just launched online, allowing you to shop an edit that includes pieces from Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Dior, Mulberry, and Valentino.

Siopaella 

Owner of this Dublin brand Ella de Guzman has years of experience in verifying the authenticity of pre-owned luxury bags and accessories, so you can purchase with confidence. 

She’s also helped re-create some of the excitement of buying a bag in person during the pandemic with her bi-weekly Instagram lives where she reveals new-in pieces that see thousands tuning in.

Designer Exchange 

Another shop with a great range of second-hand designer bags and accessories, they also make it easy to shop by designer on their website, perfect if you have a specific bag you’re seeking out. They also allow you to pay monthly for your purchase, allowing you to spread the cost.

No 8 Galway 

This Galway store has more than just second-hand bags, with jewellery and clothes for both men and women, too. They also have a good mix of high-end and more affordable pieces.

Naphisa

This Cork-based store has been selling pre-owned designer good for 35 years, so they’re experts in finding great pieces. They also have shoes, accessories and clothing in their range.

TBD

This Dublin shop has both men’s and women’s styles available, as well as a great selection of designer sunglasses and accessories.
