How do I buy?

Are we a SHAM?

You will notice we have no vintage Dianas for sale. Is that because we are a SHAM?! No, definitely not. Common sense dictates there are easier ways to rip you off (such as listing an item here for sale!)

Due to surging demand, we have implemented a 24 hour silent bid auction process. You just send us a message with your bid price and you have one final chance to update it. We list our rules on instagram to auction and this is highlighted in the "HOW TO BUY" section in our stories. Please read that first as we tend not to appreciate answering questions which can be answered by simply clicking around. 

Why do we sell like this? Things get expensive when there is no trust. In order to keep costs down, we try to build trust between ourselves and the buyer. This is why we sell face-to-face, nothing to hide and you can ask all the questions you want and look at the bag you want to buy. When there is no trust, a lot of middle men benefit and you the buyer will have to shoulder those costs. Even if we cannot meet face-to-face, we do appreciate interactions on instagram so we can get to (e-know) each other! So start practicing on Tinder and let's get to know each other online!

Where can I buy then?

We’re most active on Instagram and you can find bags for auction (NO DIRECT SALE) there. You will find the most updated status of our Dianas and other vintage Chanel bags for sale in our stories. This website is a space for us to blog and fulfil our other purpose which is educating our buyers in vintage luxury bags. 

See you on instagram (@mygrandfathersthings) and join the community!
