Purchasing designer bags online

The Secret To Purchasing Designer Handbags To Resell On eBay Or Your Own Online Store
by: Laurie Winslow

You may have noticed that when you try to find authentic wholesale designer purses/ handbags it is nearly impossible to find information on true wholesale distributors. This article will define wholesale and tell you why it is almost impossible to become an actual wholesaler with a designer handbag company, and will show you the alternative to purchasing wholesale; that is how to purchase authentic designer handbags at below wholesale prices that you can resell instead.

First what does Wholesale really mean? Wholesale is the selling of goods to merchants; usually in large quantities for resale to consumers.

According to the United Nations Statistics Division Wholesale is the resale (sale without transformation) of new and used goods to retailers, to industrial, commercial, institutional or professional users, or to other wholesalers, or involves acting as an agent or broker in buying merchandise for, or selling merchandise, to such persons or companies. Wholesalers frequently physically assemble, sort and grade goods in large lots, break bulk, repack and redistribute in smaller lots, for example pharmaceuticals; store, refrigerate, deliver and install goods, engage in sales promotion for their customers and label design.

Designers Keep Their Products Exclusive

Companies, such as Kate Spade, Louis Vuitton and Coach that sell designer handbags will not just sell their handbags to anyone. They are very selective in who they allow to sell their handbags. The companies that they allow to sell their merchandise are required to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars per order and purchase in multiple quantities. In fact Louis Vuitton does not wholesale to anyone. Their products are so exclusive that their handbags can only be purchased at their company owed exclusive shops and one web site.

Recently someone paid to have a question answered on GoogleAnswers and this was the response they were given:

“Most wholesalers in Italy sell lots of $100,000+ at a time, and there are plenty of buyers for this merchandise. Most people who buy from Italy sell in lots of $10-$15k at a time and again, they're more likely to run OUT of merchandise than be over run with merchandise just lying around. Unless you plan to spend $100K or more, you are probably better off buying from people who buy from people in Italy.” The article went on to give an internet web site link where you could purchase handbags at discount prices and suggested to contact the online store to set up an account with them and negotiate a deal for better prices if you purchased in bulk.

The Secret to Getting Handbags To Resell

Since it is so hard to become a wholesaler for designer handbags you might be wondering how you can get merchandise for your online stores or eBay auctions. eBay PowerSellers know this answer and I am now going to share their secret with you. There are many reputable companies on the internet who sell authentic designer handbags at discounts up to 80% off retail prices. This is the key to getting handbags to sell below wholesale. These discounted handbags are usually past season, over-production, and closeout items. To find these web sites you have to scour the web and in the process you will run across a ton of sites that sell designer knock offs. To ensure the store is reputable you will have to do some research, including checking the About Me or a similar web page (look for a link off the home page), the handbag description itself and the stores guarantee about their merchandise. Make sure they guarantee that the handbags are “authentic”. Many sites selling counterfeits omit this information or just mention the handbags are “new”. Authentic handbags come from many sources, including purchasing department store liquidations, purchasing directly from a distributor, or purchasing vintage products. Some companies even go over to Italy and purchase closeouts and liquidations and bring them back over here to resell.

Don’t be scammed by people claiming to provide you with actual wholesale lists for designer handbag companies. Their lists will be the same sites that you find on the internet and in my directory- not for the handbag manufacturers and distributors. As I have shown you it is nearly impossible to purchase handbags directly from the handbag manufacturer or distributor unless you have hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend, but by doing some careful research you can find products for your business at or below wholesale prices.

The only 100% Authentic, guaranteed Louis Vuitton bags are on eLuxury or a Louis Vuitton boutique. I'd stay away from, she sells 100% FAKE LV bags and many people have reported this site as fraudulent. I've even read the owner, Mari Adams, goes incognito on various blogs saying what a great site she has. Mia, are you really Mari Adams? From what I've read, you are.

I have a friend who purchased a FAKE bag at She ordered it, received it, took it to LV to be verified to be was a FAKE LV BAG. Then, when she contacted them to say she wanted to return the bag, she got nothing but a "run-around" from a Mari Adams, the owner of the site and then all communication stopped from and my friend is STILL waiting for her refund and its been 11 months. DON'T BUY FROM AUTHENTICLVBAGS.COM THEY SELL FAKES AND DON'T REFUND YOUR MONEY,.

Designer handbags are the handbags which are manufactured by us keeping in mind the best designs of the well known brands but the raw material and designers employed are our own. Hence, these are available at reasonable prices. The quality of these Designer handbags is also competitive in the market.

The ankle boots are the most popular ladies shoes in this category which can be worn under trousers. The ankle boots are now more worn with jeans and skirts though pants is also another option. Next to ankle boots, heeled footwear also carries a unique look. They are an ideal match with skinny jeans and leggings. In these times, knee boots have also become a hit with users. They look great with skirts just above the knee or with knee-length skirts.

Skechers said...

It has been said that a lot of the other brand name shoes that has also become increasingly popular are extensions of the Skechers brand or it is stated that the design is Skechers and the other brand names are simply added to it afterwords.
