The auctions I have attended so far haven’t featured a lot of designer fashion. But some auctioneers do sell it. From Louis Vuitton travel trunks at thousands of pounds, to Ray Bans for a snip of their original price, there is something for the fashionista in the world of auctions.
Take this Celine mini luggage tote (RRP £2450) estimated to sell at £900-1,100. It’s a timed auction from William George & Co, ending on 12th Feb, so you still have time to get your bids in. The reserve hasn’t yet been met and the latest bid was £450. My guess would be that the reserve is around £750, but it is just a guess. No harm in sticking a bid of £475 in and seeing what happens.
If you’re shopping for your summer holidays then may I recommend a pair of Louis Vuitton faux tortoiseshell sunglasses, with gilt metal hinges and original case? The auctioneer is Tennants and the auction starts at 10.30am on 11th Feb. The auctioneer’s estimate is £80-100.
If it’s a pair of heels you’re after, you might want to take a look at these Christian Louboutin black leather ‘fish scale’ textured ankle boots (size 38). They come with the original box, dust bag and purchase receipt and the auctioneer’s estimate is a mere £60-80. For Louboutins!! They appear in the same auction as the sunglasses, which is actually a pretty good auction for designer fashion.
Let me know if you buy anything and, if you’re enjoying this blog, please feel free to share on social media.
