At The Vintage Bar, we are committed to providing an enjoyable, risk-free shopping experience. Purchasing pre-loved luxury online can be intimidating, and it can be hard to assess whether or not pieces are genuine. Empathizing with our customers’ concerns, we provide a 100% guarantee of authenticity on everything we sell. To combat counterfeits and protect your investment, our team of brand experts meticulously inspects each item by hand. We only sell pieces we would proudly wear ourselves, so you can complete your order with confidence.
Our authenticators have extensive personal and professional experience. Passionate about luxury vintage, they have shopped and worn all the brands we sell for years themselves. Through The Vintage Bar Academy, an online platform we use for education and development, they receive ongoing training in order to ensure their brand knowledge remains accurate and up-to-date.
Prior to being uploaded onto our site, each item undergoes our rigorous authentication process – twice. Leaving zero margin for error, two of our in-house experts independently evaluate each piece. They take every detail into account, methodically inspecting a combination of elements: label, code, stamp, hardware, stitching, material, symmetry, and overall craftsmanship. To verify each piece as legitimate, they compare what they find with the respective house’s established standards.
If any part of a product has been modified, repaired, or replaced, and is no longer original, it will be noted in its description.
Together with our brand experts, we vow – with 100% certainty – that every item in our stock is authentic. Each shipment includes a unique The Vintage Bar Certificate of Authenticity – our written and stamped expression of this. If you ever decide to resell your piece or get your collection appraised, our certificate will prove invaluable.
We aim to be your most credible source for authenticated luxury. Because trust is at the very heart of what we do, we offer a 14-day return period. During this time, you can view your purchase yourself and, if you are not satisfied, return it for a full refund. Like us, you should also be 100% certain.
