Dubai is an international shopping destination for the biggest luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Prada, and Hermes. And we know, designer items can also break banks. However, if you are ready to look in the right direction, you can find something you love at a fraction of the cost. There are now a number of high-end consignment and resale online and physical stores that came into operation over the last few years, and we have listed them to help you buy the designer bag of your dreams for less.

Bagatelle Boutique

The store promises 100 per cent authentication of items by their in-house experts prior to buying and reselling the products to new clients. Though they also have brand new items, majority of the products sold at the store and their website are pre-loved items.
