Where to shop for vintage bags online


Usually when it comes to questions about fashion, most of those we get or ask ourselves are related to where to buy certain items. One time Ana and I even stopped a girl while she was crossing the street to ask where she got the amazing pair of jeans she was wearing. And the same ting happened to me. Once I was wearing this amazing coat with leather sleeves and the girl who stopped me to ask where it's from even asked if I could type the exact website in her phone so she wouldn't misspelled. You can never be to safe. :D
Lately most of the questions I've been getting are about my bags. Which makes me super proud, because I love to have bags different from those that are currently popular and I also love love to search for vintage bags. After half a decade of online bag shopping (yes, I intentionally said decade so it would seem longer) here are my favourite online spots for vintage bag hunting.

Kada se radi o pitanjima vezanim za modu (bilo da ih dobijamo ili sami pitamo), najčešće su ona vezana za to gde nešto kupiti. Ana i ja smo čak zaustavile devojku na pešačkom prelazu da je pitamo gde je kupila prelep par farmerki koji je nosila. I meni se dešavalo slično. Jednom sam nosila divan kaput sa kožnim rukavima pa je devojka koja me je zaustavila da pita odakle je čak zamolila da ukucam tačan sajt u njenom telefonu da ona ne bi upisala pogrešan. Preciznost nije na odmet. :D U poslednje vreme je većina pitanja koje sam dobijala bilo vezano za moje torbe. Zbog toga sam jako srećna, volim da imam torbe koje se razlikuju od trenutno popularnih i zato volim da kupujem vintidž torbe. Posle pola decenije online kupovine torbi (da, namerno sam rekla decenije da bi izgledalo duže :D) ovo su neka od mojih omiljenih ''mesta'' za traženje vintidž tašni.

Edrop-off


It's like Ebay, but it's not. The website started out as an Ebay store and is still connected to Ebay, but they also have their own website which makes the whole experience more visually appealing. Like the name suggest, Edrop-off is a place where people drop off items they no longer want or need and then the store sells them. This is the website where I got my Furla bag, which was in amazing condition (and still is, couple of years later). Now their prices are a bit higher then they used to be, I guess more people know about the store and it's based on bidding so it makes sense. You can still find some amazing deals here if you are patient and lucky.

Ovaj sajt je kao Ebay, ali nije. Počeo je kao Ebay radnja i dalje je povezan sa njim, ali sada imaju i svoj sajt koji je vizuelno mnogo kvalitetniji. Kao što ime i kaže, Edrop-off je mesto gde prodavci ostave svoje korišćene komade koje više ne žele i zatim ih radnja prodaje. Na ovom  sajtu sam pronašla svoju Furla torbu, koja je bila u odličnom stanju (i dalje jeste, nekoliko godina kasnije). Sada su cene malo više nego kada je sajt bio nov, verovatno više ljudi zna za radnju, a kupovina je aukcijskog tipa pa to ima smisla. Ovde možete pronaći neke neverovatne ponude ako ste strpljivi i imate malo sreće.

Ebay

Right now the list of things you can't find on Ebay can probably fit on one sheet of A4 paper. It's the paradise for buying and selling and for practicing your bidding skills, of course. For successful shopping for vintage bags (or other items) on Ebay you do need a bit of a fashion knowledge and vintage shopping experience, unfortunately not all the items are genuine. Sometimes even the sellers don't know what they have (not all the sellers), so you have to be careful. Considering that, I'll have to say I never got a fake bag on Ebay, but I do look for all the details, like tags, zippers, lining... If the seller only shows one photo of the item, or generic photo from the Internet stay clear from that store!

Trenutno lista stvari koje ne možete naći na Ebay-u može da stane na jedan list A4 papira. Ovaj sajt je raj za kupovinu i prodaju i naravno za vežbanje aukcijskih veština. Za uspešnu kupovinu vintidž torbi (i odeće) na Ebay-u treba vam malo znanja o modi i iskustva u vintidž kupovini, nažalost nisu svi komadi originalni. Ponekad čak i prodavci ne znaju šta imaju (ne svi, doduše), tako da treba da budete pažljivi. Kada se i to uzme u obzir, moram da kažem da nikada nisam kupila ''lažnu'' torbu na Ebay-u, ali uvek proveravam detalje kao što su etikete, rajsferšlusi, postava... Ako prodavac ima samo jednu sliku nekog komada, ili sliku skinutu sa Interneta držite se podalje od te radnje!

Etsy

Now this is the place where you can find the rarest of the vintage gems. Etsy stores are usually run by the people who know quite a lot about the items they are offering, and owners of Etsy stores with vintage clothes are vintage enthusiasts who probably know more about vintage items than I ever will. Also, they are quite honest about items condition and past so you'll know what you are getting. I got so many amazing vintage items on Etsy and I love every single one of them.

Ovo je mesto na kome možete da pronađete jako retke vintidž stvari. Etsy radnje obično vode ljudi koji znaju jako puno o komadima koje nude i vlasnici Etsy radnji sa vintidž stvarima su uglavnom zaljubljenici u iste i u njih se razumeju više nego što ću ja ikada. Takođe, prilično su iskteni o stanju stvari pa ćete znati tačno šta dobijate. Tokom godina sam kupila toliko divnih stvari na Esty-ju i sve ih jako volim.

Depop

If you prefer shopping apps, this one is for you. I love Depop because you can find similar items like on Ebay, but at lower prices. It's more personal as well, every seller has a profile and can follow people, comment and like same as on Instagram. You can also find stores by successful bloggers like Chiara Ferragni so you literally know form which closet your item is coming. Only thing I don't like about Depop is that most of the time sellers don't turn on an ''instant buy'' button so you have to contact them in order to buy an item and the messages are sometimes not working properly. There's a lot of room for improvement, but I think Depop is getting there.

Ako preferirate aplikacije za kupovinu, ova je za vas. Volim Depop jer možete da pronađete slične komade kao na Ebay-u, ali po nižim cenama. Celo iskustvo kupovine je dosta lično, svaki prodavac ima svoj profil pa možete da pratite ljude, komentarišete i ''lajkujete'' slike kao na Instagramu. Takođe možete pronaći radnje uspešnih blogerki kao što je Chiara Ferragni pa bukvalno znate iz kog ormana je stvar koja vam se dopada. Jedino što mi se ne sviđa kod Depop-a je to što prodavci uglavnom nemaju aktiviranu ''instant buy'' opciju pa morate da ih kontaktirate da biste nešto kupili, a poruke ponekada ne funkcionišu. Aplikacija ima dosta mesta za popravke, ali mislim da će u budućnosti to rešiti.
