For those not familiar, Fendi is an Italian luxury fashion house that designs ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes, fragrances, eyewear, timepieces, fur, and accessories. Established in Italy in 1925 Fendi is most known for it’s fur and fine leather goods especially their handbag deemed the “Baguette”.
In recent years Fendi’s marketing plan was to gain greater press for their runway shows so in 2014 they famously added drones to their runway shows and in 2015 they created a clear plexiglass runway.
As fur has become SO politically incorrect, it has not appeared to affect Fendi. They still produce $100,000.00+ fur coats in Chinchilla and Sable as well as wraps, fur trimmed sweaters, and accessories with fur detail. A Fendi fur wallet can fetch $5000 at resale.
Fendi handbags are made from the finest leathers and as they are made in Italy, we already know the quality is extremely high. The Italians design the best cars and clothing, and have the best food, but don’t get me started on their ability to deliver mail.
Last time I was in Fendi I fell in love with their women’s watches that highlight gemstones on every hour of the hour but when you depress the face and turn, an entire new set of gemstones are revealed. This way you can have two totally different looks. So cool and the price was not unreasonable for such a great piece of engineering. $2500-$3000 depending on which stones you wish.
Anyone in the Houston area thinking of selling off any of their Fendi items whether it be handbags, shoes, watches, or furs, would be wise to seek the assistance to someone with expertise in resale. Additionally, they should take advantage of the option of consignment if they are willing to wait a little longer for the right price and buyer.
Always be careful when selling high value items. Never let strangers come into your home unless you have truly vetted them as safe.
