Categorizing and Authenticating
Our Handbag Committee is comprised of industry experts and knowledgeable consumers who assess each bag based on interior and exterior condition. Once a bag passes inspection and verification, the exterior is carefully cleaned; the interiors are carefully checked for damaged and/or forgotten items. The Icon bags are further scrutinized. We authenticate these bags in a step-by-step process starting with on-line research, verification of serial numbers and finally assessment of materials and finished details for brand consistency.
We occasionally decide a bag is better served by donating it to Suited for Change, an organization founded in 1992, who’s mission is to break down barriers to self-sufficiency by providing professional clothing, career and life skills education to low-income women.
