A Second Chance
Between its two Manhattan locations (SoHo and the Upper East Side), A Second Chance boasts one of the largest selections of pre-owned Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Hermès bags and accessories in the City. Each neatly organized store resembles a dream closet, with rows of glass shelves and racks that display gold baubles, belts and heels for a fraction of their retail cost. For example, a jumbo Chanel caviar purse that retails for a little over $4,900 sells for around $3,800 here. If that asking price is still more than you bargained for, take heart: A Second Chance buys used designer items for cash or to put toward your next purchase. But don't wait for your third chance, because you may not have one.
