Let the Hedy Staff Guide You - 4 Items Recommended By the Fashionable Store Staff

Whether you are a veteran of the world of luxury or not, the knowledgeable Hedy staff are more than willing to guide you through their stylish merchandise, offering insight into the products to shed new light on their glamor. While mentioning that some of the most popular brands amongst the inventory are unsurprisingly Chanel and Dior, they were also able to draw our eyes to gorgeous gems that may have been overlooked had they not been pointed out. 

Do not worry about the staff trying to push you to buy things – they are happy to assist and offer their expertise, but also understand that many of Hedy’s customers are there to peruse and find their perfect fit. That being said, they delightfully showed us their recommendations among the plethora of posh merchandise, which we have detailed below!

Hermes Kelly 32

It is no secret that Hermes Birkins and Kellys are extremely sought after, and their exclusivity makes them even more enticing. This specific two-toned Kelly 32 from 1979 is quite remarkable, with the cream crinoline canvas body accentuating the black box calf leather borders. Not only are Hermes Kellys difficult to attain in the first place, but such fabulous color combinations are even harder to come by. The unique design gives it character and a distinctiveness that sets it apart from its modern counterparts, and any Hermes aficionado will surely be able to appreciate obtaining such a special Kelly.

Chanel Diana Flap Bag

Chanel bags are undeniably iconic, arguably none more so than the quilted flap bags. This gorgeous bag, named after the beloved Diana, Princess of Wales, is widely admired by Chanel and Princess Diana fans alike. This particular bag at Hedy was crafted in the early 90s, and as the design was temporarily discontinued from 1995 to 2015, the original vintage version from before its discontinuation is among the most desirable. Chanel’s signature quilted exterior and “CC” logo hardware is certainly striking, giving its owner the chic air associated with Chanel!

Louis Vuitton Looping Bag

You would be hard-pressed to find someone who does not recognize the classic Louis Vuitton monogram. This looping bag has a simple exterior with a long, curved handle that sits comfortably on the shoulder or in the crook of your arm. It is also a handy size, being compact enough so that it is not a hindrance, but big enough to easily fit everyday essentials and more. The vintage flair elevates its charm, and it is both a stylish and practical bag.

Hermes Chaine d'Ancre Bracelet

Due to its extreme popularity in addition to the time it takes to craft this stunning piece of jewelry, it is not uncommon to have to wait for around two years to get one’s hands on a Hermes Chaine d'Ancre Bracelet. The Hedy staff informed us that the craftspeople painstakingly ensure that each link is carefully welded so that there are no openings in the metal, and due to the time needed to reach this level of quality, there are periods during which retail stores may not have any in stock. It is thrilling to be able to walk right into Hedy and be able to instantly pick up this coveted bracelet!

The Perks of Shopping at Hedy

Owning such fabulous designer pieces comes at a price – namely, steep price tags that may seem out of reach. However, vintage stores such as Hedy are able to provide items of exceptional quality for lower than retail prices, so whether you have an eye on a certain brand or item or just want to start your luxury collection, Hedy is a great place to begin. 

Of course, reduced prices are not applicable to every item in the store, particularly the exceedingly rare and sought-after pieces. If you are a luxury lover, then you may have come across a highly desired piece that is unattainable by just walking in and selecting it, whether it be from high demand or limited availability. However, Hedy boasts several such elusive items on hand, such as the Hermes bags and jewelry introduced above, allowing customers the opportunity to own these coveted items without jumping through the hoops of shopping retail!

The Hedy staff make sure that they are well informed about not only the pieces available in the store, but also the trends throughout the decades and the current luxury market to ensure that customers can feel confident in their decisions. Do not hesitate to inquire with the staff when you are feeling lost or are looking for more information – their expertise is sure to quell any hesitations you may have!

As mentioned above, Hedy’s inventory is managed by an in-house appraiser, so customers need not worry about fakes. Everything at Hedy has already been examined and authenticated, and customers will also receive a Certificate of Authenticity upon purchasing from Hedy.
