A kind & generous reader let me know just now that she got these Rachel Comey hitch boots – in perforated leather! – at Steven Alan this week and saved an additional 15% with code springwelcome. That would make them $254!! Not a bad deal for Rachel Comey boots. In perforated leather no less.
And now for something completely different, but not really. I’ve been toying around with adding a “Marketplace” category here on Grechen’s Closet where readers could submit items for sale. I would be VERY picky about the posts/items I’ll eventually include in the marketplace; they would have to be for designers like Rachel Comey, Repetto, no6, Alexander Wang, etc. Since many of you come here to seek out items by these designers anyway, it seems logical to offer a solution for where to buy them used as well.
I would stay completely out of the buying/selling process, my role is curator and facilitator. I cannot be responsible for authenticating anything, although if I can tell that something is obviously fake, I’ll reject the post. I also wouldn’t charge any fees for doing this, maybe I’ll create a badge for you guys who are bloggers to post on your blogs though. Or correction, I’ll have Linda create a badge for me 😉
Is this something you would be interested in using? Either selling or buying? what would make you more or less inclined to use a marketplace like what I’m talking about?
