If there’s something we love here at Sassy, it’s a bargain. But with the prices of our favourite designer duds rising each and every year, this puts us in rather the penny-pinching predicament. Enter the world of the second hand shopping sphere. With prices ranging from 20-60% lower than original retail, prepare to make ‘gently used’ your new favourite saying as we give you our list of our ultimate online second hand sites in Singapore.
As their slogan says, Reebonz are Singapore’s largest and most trusted site for both new and pre-owned designer labels. When it comes to pre-owned think Chanel, Louis Vuitton and YSL bags, Rolex and Cartier watches and jewellery galore. Once purchased, you can not only expect your goodies in as little as three working days but delivery is also free! All items are guaranteed authentic by Reebonz’s dedicated team of quality controllers and refunds are accepted for up to 10 days.
One of the newer players in Singapore’s second hand world, Style Tribute is run by a team of European fashion industry insiders. Bringing together decades worth of experience, the site is sharp and sleek and even boasts its own online magazine. But what can you expect? Well there’s a wide range of brands from Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Hermes to Guess from goodies ranging from bags, shoes, jeans to ball gowns. Expect prices from just $100 to the $1000’s.
If you’re just bonkers for bags, then you need to meet Madam Milan. Both online and with three boutiques ( Holland Village, Far East Plaza and Raffles Place), Madam Milan carries one of the finest selections of designer bags we have seen to date. With nearly all of her bags being in absolute pristine shape, you can expect Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Hermes, Tods and Prada. What’s more, her team of sales assistants have an almost encyclopedic knowledge and even offer a concierge service that brings a selection of bags right to your door, for when you don’t have time to hunt it down yourself. A real gem.
Brands Fever is a bit of a funny one. An online flash sale site, the sales can be more often hit than miss but when you strike gold, you really do strike gold. Sales include vintage Chanel bags at $3900 from $7300, new Bottega bags at $1800 from $2900 and Prada wallets at $575 from $900. And with discounts like that, a little search is most definitely worth it.
The Attic Place
While it might not be the fanciest website around, The Attic Place really does offer up some wonderfully well-curated beauties. There’s both nearly new and vintage handbags and accessories from brands like Hermes, Fendi, Goyard and Tods and as it’s based in Singapore, delivery takes just two days. What’s more, anyone with a Singapore Citibank, UOB or Maybank card can pay in six, 12 or 24 month instalments, making that purchase all the more easy, not to mention, tempting.
