Favorite Shop Of The Month
I’m so excited to start a new monthly blog series with you. Each month I will showcase one of my favorite small shops and let you know more details about them and share my personal items I have from them with you!
I love to support other women and help them grow with their businesses and this is a fun way for you to get to know each of them a little better!
I wanted to start this in January but life had lots of unexpected twists and turns for us with putting our home on the market and buying another one. And while we are still in the process of all that.. ( I’ll write a post on that later ? ) I still wanted to begin this new blog series with you.
What better way to kick of my series than with one FABULOUS shop!
I want to introduce to you a wonderful way to have a gorgeous high end, luxury hand bag at a fraction of the cost! I have ALWAYS loved a good designer bag and quite often when we lived in Tampa I would buy from consignment shops and I even found some authentic ones at thrift stores (believe it or not)! I eventually turned that into a business buying and selling them, for a short time and loved it!
Well fast forward to now .. and I have an amazing husband that has spoiled me with several bags that he has got me for special occasions over the years. This Christmas he got me the most BEAUTIFUL LV from a fabulous shop Luxury Lady Little Rock.
Let me show you a picture of the bag..
Isn’t it beautiful? I love it! And it came with the box, bow and dust bag! It was actually a new bag that someone consigned with her!
She has all different brands of bags and price points which are reflected by the condition of the bag and her inventory is constantly updating as she gets new bags in.
I sat down with Katie Beth for a short Q&A session for my readers…
Who is Luxury Lady?
Luxury Lady is owned by Katie Beth Evans and is based in Little Rock, AR. We are an e-commerce business operating through Instagram and Facebook. Katie Beth is 27 years old with an eye for fashion and a love for designer handbags! She started Luxury Lady to sell 3 of her own LV bags and added her close friends to a closed, private Facebook group. Well, over time, they added friends, and their friends added friends and it grew into what it is now!
How does your consignment work?
We buy, sell, and trade to obtain our goods. Most of our goods come from consignors from all over the US. Our consignors bring or ship us their items they are ready to part with and we handle all of the pictures, posting, selling, shipping, and layaway plans. The consignor receives 70% of what the item sells for and we agree on the pricing together. The consignor receives their payment from the sale within 10 days.
What?s the Authentication process?
Katie Beth is a brand professional and has done extensive authentication research and training. She personally authenticates each item in person. In addition to this screening, they work with a company called Entrupy. They use microscopic images to dissect the bag which are then submitted into an artificial intelligence system for authentication. So ladies, not only are these bags authenticated by eye in person (not just from some pics), they are dissected microscopically. Each and every item comes with an authenticity financial guarantee and are guaranteed authentic. Some items even come with an Entrupy certificate of authenticity on top of the financial guarantee!
How do I know what is available and what is sold?
On Instagram, just click on the posts and check the comments under that post. @luxladylr will comment ??SOLD?? if the item is no longer available. Everything else is free game!
On Facebook, there is an ?available items? album you can go to to see a sneak peek of what?s available. You can also just scroll through the page and anything that is already sold will say ?Edit, SOLD!? At the top of the original post or in the comments.
What about the condition of items?
We sell items in all different conditions so that we can offer a variety of options for all budgets. We rank our items condition as used, good, very good, great, excellent, and like new and any and all wear is noted in the items condition description or photos.
Be sure and go check out Katie Beth’s shop and I hope you find the bag of your dreams at an amazing price. Happy Shopping ?
