you can buy, rent or sell your designer stuff

i found this shop yesterday and i cannot wait to tell you about it.

you know the thing i love most about hong kong is the fact that i don’t read or write chinese, so i treat walking every street corner as an adventure. rents in hong kong are the fourth highest in the world and because of that, to find good things you need to hunt for it!!!!

when people talk about a holiday in hk, they never fail to relay crazy shopping stories. if you still feeling burnt from buying too much from your last trip, let me suggest how you can make some money to fund your next trip.

you can resell your designer goods. of course you can do that now at milan station but the resale prices are so low, you’d be insulted. i found this place yesterday ( which is very unlikely for tourists to find) at Jardine Bazaar. it’s called Icon Lady. you can put your sell your designer stuff on consignment. just name a price and if they sell it, they get a 20% cut from the transaction.

what if they sell after you leave hong kong? no problem, they can mail you the check or you can your friends who live in hong kong to do it for you. i’d be happy to offer you this service but you have to pay for postage. dope isn’t it?

besides selling your designer stuff, you can buy REAL designer stuff at a discounted price. depending on the brand, i’d say expect a 15% – 20% discount.

okie, let me get to the BEST part, you can also RENT a bag. yup you heard me right. funny right, in hong kong people are really obsessed about status. i have thought of renting cars, houses,electrical goods but i never thought of renting a handbag. the shop assistant said, the most popular rent items are clutches. which makes perfect sense because clutches are so darn small but expensive and most of the time, you only use it for a one off event.

how much is it to rent a clutch – between HK$ 200 – HK$400 for 2 day 1 night. look on their website to check out the renting procedure. it’s pretty simple and it’s so much cheaper than buying a non-branded bag.

so the next time your boyfriends or husband say, don’t come to hong kong, you will sure spend money like as though money grows on tree. tell them, i am going to do business too – i am selling my designer stuff!!

this is why trouble loves hong kong! it’s the only place in the world where people go to the extremes for capitalistic reasons – please use this system wisely and share it with all the shopaholics you know!!!

oh which the way – just for your info. the top brands they sell, rent and buy are classic LV, Gucci, Hermes, Miu Miu, Prada and Chanel

Look for this !!!
