JCPenney sells secondhand goods at 30 stores

J.C. Penney is hoping to boost sales through a new deal to sell secondhand goods with trendy resaler Thredup.

The Plano, Texas–based department-store chain announced that 30 of its 850 JCPenney stores will sell secondhand women’s clothing and handbags from Thredup, the world’s largest online consignment store. Thredup says it resells 35,000 brands on its website  —  ranging from Gap to Gucci  — at up to 90 percent off retail prices. Each Thredup shop at JCPenney will be curated and refreshed weekly.

“With the rise of online resale markets, there’s no doubt that demand for great value on quality brands is at an all-time high,” said Michelle Wlazlo, executive vice president and chief merchant at JCPenney, in a press release. “There’s an emotional thrill that comes with finding one-of-a-kind, secondhand product for much less. While there are more secondhand shoppers than ever before, we’ll continue to test and evaluate how this resonates with customers. We’re excited about the prospect of creating a new in-store experience that makes high-end brands attainable, as well as catering to eco-minded consumers who want more sustainable options in their wardrobe.”

The Thredup assortment, offering a seasonal array of resale handbags and women’s fashions, will be merchandised in a 500-to-1,000-square-foot in-store boutique in select markets, starting this week.

The move comes in the wake of a Penney announcement that its same-store sales declined by 9 percent in the second quarter.

Affordable Designer Bags To Choose From

I know “affordable” is a relative term. And, many of these bags are still expensive.

But, I’ve chosen these either because they are a luxury brand which doesn’t cost so much as the higher-end brands, while still offering a classic, quality style.

Or, because they are bags from the top-name brands, but they are at the more affordable end of what they offer.

For more inspiration look at this piece on handbag trends 2020.

Accessible Luxury Handbag Brands

Okay, this might seem like something of an oxymoron, but the popularity of “accessible luxury” or “casual luxury” brands is growing.

These give you a feeling of luxe, and a designer label, without the same price tag as the likes of Chanel, Hermes, Prada or Gucci, for example.

Here are some of my favorite accessible luxury handbag brands

Designer Tote Bags – Tory Burch

If you are looking for a designer handbag that you will definitely get lots of use from, a tote bag is the way to go.

You can use this everyday to fit all of your essentials in. Plus it will give any outfit an instant lift and feeling of luxe.

One of my own favorite brands for tote bags is Tory Burch.

Michael Kors – Black Designer Handbag

Michael Kors is, arguably, the man best known for making the “it” bag affordable.

You can still have a designer brand, with the brand name spelled out in shiny gold capitals, without too much outlay.

Plus, his are definitely the kind of investment pieces that won’t date, so you can wear them for years to come.

Kate Spade – Designer Shoulder Bags

Kate Spade was another designer who was a trailblazer when it came to introducing the notion of affordable luxury.

At the time, the market was dominated by really high-end options at one end and high street bags at the other end. She cleverly pushed her brand into that gap.

Depending on what you choose, you can get a Kate Spade handbag for around the $300 mark, or even lower if you choose nylon instead of leather.

I love her totes, but also the shoulder bags and evening bags.

Coach – Designer Leather Bags

One of Michael Kors’ and Kate Spade’s big rivals is Coach, which is also built on the idea that designer handbags don’t have to mean taking out a second mortgage.

Coach is a good option if you are looking for designer leather bags.

There are plenty of classic, and more on-trend pieces (yet still with a timeless quality).

I particularly like the slouchier pieces, but there are more structured options to if you prefer a more classic style.

Marc Jacobs

At one point the Marc by Marc Jacobs line was the go-to for affordable pieces while the main Marc Jacobs line was more expensive.

Now, to save confusion, that has been incorporated into the main Marc Jacobs brand, but you’ll still find handbags at varying price points.

You’ll find everything from classic totes to on-trend crossbody styles. Some have subtle branding while others have “Marc Jacobs” splashed across them.

Rebecca Minkoff

New York-based brand Rebecca Minkoff is one of the new kids on the block, having been founded in 2005.

Her bags are known to be more fashion-forward than some of the more classic styles on the list, so you’ll find plenty of on-trend shapes and fabrics.

But also so many classic options that definitely won’t date, no matter how long you use them.

Now For Some Top Designer Handbags

If you really love the aesthetic of a particular brand, you don’t have to go for second best.

You can think about purchasing in the sale, or perhaps opting for a different fabric or size rather than the really expensive options.

I’m going to finish my top 10 with some more affordable choices from the bigger name brands.

Vivienne Westwood – Designer Evening Bags

I don’t know about you, but I always think of Vivienne Westwood in the category of other big-name designers rather than as an “affordable luxury” brand.

But because she straddles so many price points, you can definitely find a Vivienne Westwood bag you can afford.

You can get a new-season clutch bag for less than $200.

See By Chloé

Chloe is a French luxury fashion house, but the See by Chloé label offers a more affordable in-route to owning one of its pieces.

Gucci Coin Purse – Small Designer Bag

Okay, this is a small option, but it is half the price you would expect to pay for a regular size Gucci handbag

If you’re looking for a designer piece you can just pop your credit card and lipstick into for a night out, this could be a style you use for many many evenings to come.

Issey Miyake

Issey Miyake bags are instantly recognizable

because of their triangular shapes. So if you want to be sure that everyone knows you are carrying a designer bag, this could be a good option.
