One woman’s Chanel is another women’s crystal vase.
At least that’s the concept behind Luxe Life Auctions, a brand new online auction house for new and vintage luxury items based in Chicago.
Buy and sell new, vintage, luxury and collectible items like one-of-a-kind jewelry, coveted designer clothing, antiques and more.
That means those vintage Gucci boots with the 5-inch heel that you love but can’t walk in may just be the perfect candidate for resale. And that diamond necklace from your ex that you can’t bear to wear anymore could be auctioned off for a pretty penny.
Sellers can drop off their “unwanted” luxe goods at the Valuation center, a sleek and stylish space in River North (744 North Clark St) designed by “Top Design” winner Matt Lorenz), and meet with an expert industry partner to learn more about their item that they’re giving up. Each item is professionally evaluated, researched and authenticated before it’s guaranteed. Then it’s put online.
Meanwhile, buyers can browse merchandise online and find their “diamonds in the rough.”
Last time we checked, we spied an Art Deco Vintage Diamond Sapphire 14K White Gold 1940’s cocktail ring up for grabs, a 1930’s diamond brooch pin, and a set of jerseys autographed by Michael Jordan and Larry Bird.
