Authenticity and Condition
At PRELOVEDSTORY, our ambition is to offer you a first-time experience of second-hand luxury items. Each of our items has been hand-picked and sourced from our international network of suppliers, authenticated in a thorough process as well as quality checked and cleaned against our standards and finally graded by condition.
As most of our items are in preloved condition, some items come with original packaging such as authenticity cards, dustbag etc while others do not. Should any concern arise regarding the authenticity of any of our items, we are happy to refer you to an independent authentication provider or offer you a full refund provided that the return adhere to our return policy (read about our return policy).
At PRELOVEDSTORY full customer satisfaction is our main goal and priority. Therefore, we offer a 7 day return policy and a lifetime 100% authenticity guarantee for all of our items.

OUR CONDITION STANDARDS
We have created condition standards to best illustrate an item's quality and characteristics. At PRELOVEDSTORY, all items are carefully curated and we only accept the best quality. We do however sell pre-loved items and therefore kindly ask you to look at our pictures, the descriptions, and the measurements as they give you the best idea of which story our items have to tell. In case of any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.

For example, the leather has developed an used patina due to frequent use. Typically items show more signs of wear (scuffed corners, used up hardware, etc.) but still correspond to PRELOVEDSTORY's high quality standards. All usage features or possible defects are mentioned in the description and clearly visible in photos. In case of doubts, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
