Couture Traders: Buy, Sell, Trade, is embracing re-commerce in a big way. The one-stop shop, located in the Rockaway Townsquare Mall in Rockaway, NJ, specializes in buying back ‘pre-loved’ authentic designer handbags, and other couture items, and reselling them to new owners.
With re-commerce tools like Facebook’s Marketplace, and websites like Poshmark and the Real Real the Buy, Sell, Trade, business model has revolutionized the way many people buy and sell pre-owned products. No longer is there a negative connotation attached to buying used products, rather, consumers are proactive about getting the best deals, and buying used. What Couture Traders is doing is taking out the frustration of having to haggle as well as guaranteeing authentication so consumers are confident in their purchase.
With the community embracing this business model and others coming from all over N.J., N.Y, and Conn. they have recently expanded into to offering parties and adding pop-up shops in locations throughout the tri-state area. Offering great hostess perks, this part of the business has taken a life of its own, and with the recent addition of financing options Couture Trader customers now have an additional opportunity to buy now and pay later.
“We believe that that there is no reason to pay full price retail for a designer handbag when you can get one for less or trade in what you have for something different. What you have today not be what you want or need in the future. We want to give a simple opportunity to change it up.” Said Owner, Kelly
