Online Shopping: The RealReal

I am always in search of a great deal.  Some of the best deals can be found in consignment shops.  Quite often you can find past season and current season items for a fraction of the cost.  I noticed that the deals are not as good as they used to be.  The RealReal is the latest online luxury designer consignment shop for women.  They carry the top designers: Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Prada, Gucci, Balenciaga, Lanvin, and more.


What’s Good for Purchasers
Sales are launched in two forms: the 72-hour sales feature seasonal items from premier designers.  The warehouse sale features casual wear, demin, other designers, and accessories.  Items are checked for authenticity and are priced to sell.

What’s Good for Sellers
Consignors receive 60% of the sales price.  When you reach sales of $1500 per year, your rate increases to 70% for the remainder of the calendar year.  Pretty good right?  Did I mention shipping was free?

Consignors are also eligible for special credits.  For every $1 you sell you can get $1.10 in credits toward purchases on the RealReal.

This is a member-only site.  First Look Membership gives you a 24-hour jump on sales.  Sales start on Sunday at 10 am PST.  First Look members pay $5 per month.  General membership is free.  Sales start Monday at 10am PST.

The RealReal may be The Real Deal.  Sign Up Now – First Look or General Membership.
