Websites where sellers and buyers unite

In this down economy, many people are willing to part with their luxury items to make some easy money, while others are happy to buy up those same designer goods for bargain prices. Now, there are a number of new online services who want to bring these buyers and sellers together and make their transactions as hassle-free as possible. If you're looking to cash in your designer handbag or find a pre-owned one on the cheap, there are a number of new websites to check out.

On Fashionphile, you'll find bags as well as all kinds of other pre-owned goods from designers like Gucci, Coach, and Chanel.

And here's an interesting Fashionphile perk -Fashionphile will buy back any bag you've bought from the website for 70-percent of the original purchase price within 90 days. That means, you can wear the bag for a couple months and then essentially, trade it in for another one, less 30-percent of what you paid.

And sellers, listen up. You can sell directly to Fashionphile and another pre-owned luxury e-tailer called Yoogi's Closet. In other words, they'll send you checks right away instead of you having to wait for your items to sell through a consignment system.

And Yoogi's Closet promises to provide you a fair value offer for your item within 24 hours. Plus, it'll cover your cost of shipping the item and it promises you'll receive payment within 3 to 5 business days.

And these websites are particularly good if you're concerned about authenticity.

Yoogi's Closet has a 100-percent money back guarantee on the authenticity of every item it sells.

Fashionphile also promises a lifetime authenticity guarantee.
