POSHBAG BOUTIQUE was founded to offer the very best selection, value, and service in the preloved designer bag market.
Noticing that Canadian websites weren't offering the same diverse selection as American websites, and wanting to avoid the high cost of import fees, POSHBAG BOUTIQUE was born. It has since become Canada's largest online retailer specializing in preowned luxury bags.
Our goal is to offer Canadians (as well as customers in other parts of the world) what we expect when shopping online - a secure shopping experience, a lifetime authenticity guarantee, free shipping and great customer service.
We also buy bags. Realizing there were few online Canadian retailers that purchased luxury bags, this became another area of the Canadian market we felt we could address. Whether buying or selling, we aim to make the process as hassle-free and enjoyable as possible. That's our promise!
Our Authenticity Guarantee
Authenticity is the cornerstone of Poshbag Boutique. We guarantee the authenticity of every item we sell with our lifetime 100% money-back authenticity guarantee. Every item includes a Poshbag Boutique Authenticity Guarantee.
The Authentication Process
Every item on our site has passed our rigorous authentication process. Our multi-point authentication process begins with a manual inspection by our in-house expert authenticators. This includes a comprehensive examination of brand- and style-specific markings, including hardware, stitching, materials, date/serial codes and, if applicable, additional accessories such as authenticity cards and receipts.
As part of our authentication process, we also employ Entrupy, a technology that takes multiple microscopic images of an item to determine authenticity with 99.1% accuracy. The use of both manual and technological authentication methods distinguishes Poshbag Boutique as a trusted authority on authenticity.
Poshbag Boutique does not accept counterfeit goods. We take authenticity seriously and are actively involved in the fight against counterfeit goods. Consigned bags that are found to be inauthentic will not be returned and will be destroyed.
Poshbag Boutique is not affiliated with any brands. Our Poshbag Boutique Authenticity Guarantee is offered solely by Poshbag Boutique; brands are not responsible for any purchase from Poshbag Boutique.
Cleaning and Rejuvenating
Every bag we own is skillfully cleaned and rejuvenated before being placed online for sale. We ensure a bag is in its best possible condition before we list it for sale.
Any imperfections a bag may have will be noted on its product page (under "Overall"). We also assign each bag a rating (under "Condition") as to how we feel a bag's current appearance compares to its original appearance when it was brand new.
Once the bag has been cleaned, the item is wrapped in our custom dust bag and kept in a non-humid room at room temperature - awaiting its new home!
Do you have a store I can visit?
No, we are an online retailer only.
Can I pick up/drop off a bag I want to buy/sell?
We don’t offer pick ups or drop offs, but on the plus side, shipping is always free!
What is your authentication process?
We have an in-house team of experienced authenticators who authenticate every bag that comes through our doors. We take authenticity seriously, which is why we offer a lifetime money-back authenticity guarantee on every bag sold. See Authenticity.
