Burberry Hobo Reveal + The Real Real Review

Try saying "The Real Real Reveal" 3 times fast.  ROR...raff out roud!

My friend introduced me to The Real Real a little over 2 months ago when I mentioned being a fan of pre-loved luxury goods.  If you can imagine a site like Malleries in a flash sale format like Rue La La...that's pretty much what The Real Real is.  They have daily sales of only pre-owned/new luxury clothing and accessories.  They gather many items from estate sales and celebrities. 

The popular items go pretty quickly, so I was surprised to see this Burberry Hobo about 4 hours into the sale.  I closely read the description and reviewed the pictures they provided.  The flaws I could live with.  The price was a steal.  So I decided to make my 1st purchase from The Real Real.

- Great prices.  I haven't done any direct comparisons, but they seem lower than Malleries, Bella Bag, Portero, etc.
- Most of the items I've seen have been in Excellent to Near New condition.
- Constant rotations of luxury brands.
- Shipment arrived overnight.  Seems the origin is in SF, which is huge plus!
- Descriptions and photos are accurate.
- New coupon codes every month for $25 off.

- My bag was not thoroughly cleaned.  I went through about 4 facial wipes to "refresh" the bag.
-  Many unsold items are repeatedly listed.  Which is OK, but I'd rather see new merchandise.

Bottom line, The Real Real is a nice change from the usual pre-owned shopping sites.  The prices are great, delivery is prompt, descriptions are accurate, and they have coupon codes!  I'm a fan and give The Real Real a thumbs up!
