SAN DIEGO, CA, January 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Authentic Luxury Goods (ALG) has announced a record breaking holiday season for its designer consignment shop based in San Diego, California. "From November thru December 2012, our sales more than doubled from the previous holiday season," says Carl Blackburn, owner of Authentic Luxury Goods.
Authentic Luxury Goods' sales report was one of the few retail success stories this past year. America's retailers were widely reported to have experienced the worst holiday season
since the financial crisis of 2008. "Today's shoppers want the best deals possible when holiday gift shopping and when shopping for themselves," says Blackburn. "Designer consignment stores like ALG are thriving because we sell previously-owned diamond jewelry in like-new condition and lightly-used designer handbags and fashion accessories at prices far below the original retail tag."
Authentic Luxury Goods uses multiple resale channels to reach a worldwide audience for its exclusive collection of pre-owned merchandise from Hermes, Harry Winston, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and other luxury brands. In addition to selling designer handbags and fine jewelry from its flagship San Diego consignment store, ALG sells luxury goods online via its branded e-Bay store and at Malleries.com
"Regardless of the state of the economy, the demand for luxury goods has traditionally remained strong," says Blackburn. "Shoppers know that designer merchandise from top brands are made to last and won't end up in the trash bin after a year or two. It makes perfect sense to buy these goods (pre-owned) at the affordable prices offered by ALG's online consignment shop
Consumers used to be worried about buying fake designer merchandise online. But Blackburn says that these fears have diminished when shopping at online consignment stores like ALG. Authentic Luxury Goods' bricks and mortar store and 100% authenticity guarantee provide customers complete confidence when buying haute couture merchandise from legendary fashion brands.
According to Blackburn, many holiday shoppers exchanged previously-loved luxury goods to purchase new items at ALG's designer consignment shop. Now is therefore a great time to find deals on ALG's exclusive selection of luxury handbags, fine jewelry, timepieces, and fashion accessories. Current items on sale include a vintage Chanel Crocodile Clutch; a Louis Vuitton Vienna Mizi Bag; a Hermes Blue Birkin 35 Handbag; a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust; a 32 carat diamond bracelet from the Roaring 20's era; and other high-brand designer goods.
