Smart Buyers Guide: Designer Items

Before purchasing designer items, be sure to take these steps to ensure that you will be satisfied with your purchase for years to come.

Check the condition of the item in person:

It is the buyer's responsibility to fully inspect the item at the scheduled meet-up to ensure you are getting the item you are expecting. Close5 simply provides the platform for buying & selling, as well as state that all sales are final in our Community Guidelines.

Things to check for include: stains, tears, cleanliness

Confirm that the item is authentic

We recommend checking for markings such as serial #’s and stitching that prove that the item is real. Also try looking online for any tips on how to determine a fake for your item. You can contact the company with the serial # to confirm.
