Yes, we buy Dooney & Bourke Bags
Please read this entire article before contacting us about your Dooney & Bourke bag.
Because we receive hundreds of emails every day, please follow this procedure so your email goes to the proper place - otherwise it will be deleted.
Paula is passionate about Dooney and Bourke All Weather Leather (AWL) bags and we would be interested in purchasing them IF they are authentic All Weather Leather bags and meet ALL of the following criteria. Please read all the way down to the bottom before you contact us.
We purchase pre-owned vintage Dooney & Bourke handbags at WHOLESALE (dealer) prices. The prices you see on our website and on eBay are RETAIL prices, the prices customers pay for the bags. So please don't bother to write us about your bags if you are asking us to pay you retail prices.
If you are not familiar
with how wholesale/retail pricing works then read my article here: Pricing:
Retail, Wholesale, Keystone
The bags and wallets and other AWL items must be:
They must have:
The bags should be in very good to excellent condition, that is an 9-10 according to our Bag Condition Score Guidelines (see at bottom of page). We do not purchase bags that have missing parts, damage, stains, odors. They must be a 9 or a 10. If you wonder what a 9 or 10 bag looks like, browse the Dooney section of our site and find some - they are bright, like new !
If you have a bag or a collection of bags, follow this procedure:

In the Subject line of the email type this:

For each bag, list the:
For example: Fir Large Equestrian. No fob. Condition 9. $75
DO NOT SEND PHOTOS UNTIL WE REQUEST THEM.
If we request photos, when you send them please put the same title in the subject line of your email.
SELLING DOONEY - YOUR FULL NAME
Include again the description and asking price in the email with the photos. Make sure each photo has a different name like Smith1.jpg, Smith2.jpg etc. If you send an email with a batch of photos all with the name image.jpg, I will only be able to see one.
We help many people clear out their closets and turn stash into cash but we ask that you follow our guidelines to help us keep things organized - we receive over 200 emails per day including those from people wanting to sell their vintage Dooneys and Native American jewelry!!
If you send a photo without a prior request from us, it will be automatically deleted.
If you don't send all of the information that we request above or follow the procedure as we request, we can't proceed.
Once we have seen photos of your bag and if we tell you we are interested in purchasing it you can then mail it to us at:
We don't settle on a price from photos. We will make you a firm offer once we see the bag in person. Once we come to an agreed-upon price, we pay the same day via PayPal or check, your choice. Note that if you choose payment by PayPal, depending upon the type of PayPal account you have, PayPal might deduct a fee from your payment in order for you to receive the money.
Do NOT mail unsolicited bags to us.
Thank you and we hope this can be a win-win situation.
