You don’t need to have the most discerning eye to recognise Burberry’s classic tartan plaid and checks print. But if you’re looking for a legitimate Burberry bag, you’ll need to leave it to the experts.

British-born Burberry was founded in 1856 and gained a lofty reputation for its technically innovative outdoor apparel. Almost 150 years later, the brand had moved on from the Balmoral set to Cool Britannia and the likes of Liam Galagher, Kate Moss and Stella Tennant. Today, Burberry is a luxury powerhouse, best known for its trench coats and stylish bags, from the Banner to Bridle bags. If you’re in the market for the latter but don’t have the heart to spend $2,000-plus in one go, vintage is a good way to go. But with so many fakes on the market, you need to be sure that you’re buying the real thing. We’ve rounded up three of the best places to buy vintage Burberry bags online. 


Founded in 2014, Rebag was one of the first brands to make luxury re-sale cool. Unlike most websites, you’ll only find the most in-demand designers on the site, which makes searching for the right bag that much easier. The website lists a relatively small, but thoughtful curated selection of 120 Burberry bags, including the Freya Tote, Lola Twin Pouch and Pocket Bag. Prices range from $350 to $2,310 and you can search by ‘percentage off retail’ for the best bargains too. An in-house team inspects, vets and approves every item, so there’s no chance of picking up a bogus bag either. The website is easy to use and item descriptions include details on condition, colour and accessories.

1stdibs is an online marketplace for antique furniture, jewellery, art and fashion. It’s vast, which can be daunting at first, though there are handy filters in place to help you whittle down your search by brand, price, item, model and much more. There are designer bags at every price point so you should be able to find something for any budget, though it’s worth noting that items aren’t vetted in the same way as Rebag or Vestiare Collective. In other words, you’ll need to do your research and purchase from the best-rated sellers. The platform makes it easy for you to speak directly to the seller though, so if you do have any questions about the condition of the bag you should be able to iron these out quickly.

The company has an in-house team of 140 experts in Quality Control and Digital Authentication with a 99.9% accuracy rate in counterfeit detection.
