• THE MAGIC OF FOUR: WELCOME TO WICKLOW STREET

    0 comments / Posted by Ella de Guzman

    So the last few blog posts in this series have been all about selling with us and the various ways you can make money with us; consigning, cash and part exchange. Why did we put so much emphasis on this? Well, because we need new stock for our NEW STORE!!

    [powr-media-gallery id=d32ff901_1475857020]

    You know by now that we are expanding onto the iconic Wicklow Street. This store is going to be our new headquarters. All the buying will now be done at Wicklow St rather than Temple Lane. Our photography studio and offices will also be ran from here! It will house our luxury and high end pieces! Think Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes!!!

    The location is right opposite Cornucopia and two doors down from Murphy's Ice Cream  (that's goodbye to packed lunches).  

    Keep an eye on our social media channels for more information regarding an official opening date and YES there will be an opening party!!

  • THE MAGIC OF FOUR: PART EXCHANGE / STORE CREDIT

    0 comments / Posted by Ella de Guzman

    In the next part of The Magic of Four blog series we're giving you the lowdown on a store credit or part exchange account! This suits those who are downsizing their bag collection and just looking for that one GOOD bag rather than a lot of little ones! It also suits those who can't afford to buy the bag of their dreams straight out so a lot of the time they trade up e.g. buying a Michael Kors using it, then trading that against a Louis Vuitton, using the LV and then trading that against a Chanel bag. All the while working your way up the dream bag ladder!

    Step 1: Bring in Your Items

    Have a look at our updated wishlists and bring in your designer bags and accessories to our 25a Temple Lane South store where one of our buyers will go through your pieces and appraise them.

    Step 2: Appraise

    One of our buyers will appraise your pieces in store and let you know how much you have in store credit. Like a cash account, brand new things, no older than two years old are what we mainly take in. However, unlike a cash account the split for you is higher with a store credit account!

    Step 3: Store Credit Account

    We start up your store credit account account and give you your Siopaella number for life and then it's up to you what you spend it on! A store credit account is the perfect option for the savvy shopper; it gives you more money off an already discounted handbag!

    Step 4: Siopaella Shopping Spree

    The store credit doesn't have to be spent the day the account is made, rather it is kept there for you to spend when you choose in any of our four stores and also online!

  • THE MAGIC OF FOUR: CASH

    0 comments / Posted by Ella de Guzman

    In part two of The Magic of Four blog series we're giving you the lowdown on cash! Yes that's right - cold hard cash for your pieces!! The first few steps are similar to consignment, but once you leave the shop you forget about your bits and start thinking about how you're going to spend your dollar billz! 

     

    [powr-media-gallery id=cf2dba49_1475483595]

    Step 1: Bring in Your Items

    Have a look at our updated wishlists and bring in your designer bags and accessories to our 25a Temple Lane South store where one of our buyers will go through your pieces and appraise them.

    Step 2: Appraise

    One of our buyers will appraise your pieces in store and let you know the cash price. When it comes to a cash account, brand new things, no older than two years old are what we mainly take in.  Cash really suits people who don't want to wait and who need the cash quick! It also suits people who just want to forget about the pieces forever (e.g. ex boyfriend gifts)!! 

    [powr-media-gallery id=6d3ec105_1475483742]

    Step 3: Cash in Your Hand

    Once we've appraised your items, there's nothing left to do but pay you in cold, hard cash! You wave goodbye to your bits, never to see them again! 

     

    Step 4: Squander, Spend, Save

    Step 4 is all up to you! The cash is now yours to squander, spend or save! Whether it's on a holiday to the Maldives, paying off that Credit Union loan or heading over to our other store and purchasing that Chanel bag you've always wanted (however we would recommend getting a store credit account rather than a cash account, more of which will be in the next blog post)! Like a consignment account your cash account is yours forever so if you've any more bits to bring in it will all be done under the one account :)
