Why buy Gucci from Japan?
With a hundred years of history since they were first established, Gucci has become one of the most recognizable names in the fashion world. Even if you’ve never set foot inside a Gucci store, you’re sure to have encountered the brand’s interlaced double G-shaped logo and their famous criss-cross pattern somewhere out in the wild.
Japan is one of Gucci’s biggest markets, owning almost 100 stores in the small island nation alone. With this in mind, it also means that there’s a huge second-hand market for Gucci bags, wallets, hats, coats, and everything else you can think of in the country. And although there are some fakes floating around, customers in Japan put a lot of value on real second-hand Gucci items that are in good condition.
So if you’re thinking “Well, I want in on that!”, it’s time to set your sights on Japan and search for Gucci products using their second-hand shops. In this article, we’re explaining how you can do just that — all while being in the comfort of your own home.
