Secondhandbags is the first second-hand store in Switzerland to specialize exclusively in designer handbags. The company was founded by Roman Brawand more than 15 years ago (2006).

The company developed very well and almost four years later the online store Secondhandbags.ch was launched. This was quite a novelty at the time, and the NZZ, Tagesanzeiger and Blick also reported on the innovative business with second-hand luxury handbags. 

In the December 2014 a dream came true and the showroom at Stampfenbachstrasse 115 in 8006 Zurich was opened. It was very popular and a complete success. In October 2018, we moved to Bäckerstrasse 24 in the vibrant Kreis 4 district. The company now has customers all over the world.

Beginning of 2020 online retail experienced a huge boost, partly due to coronavirus, and reached new record highs. This increase is also at the expense of the retail business. How much of this is a permanent shift remains to be seen in the future. For me, Roman Brawand, one thing is clear: "Even if the virus is hopefully a temporary phenomenon, I see the future primarily in online retail." Stop at the peak - I've been longing for more time with my children and my family for a long time. That's why I decided to fulfill this need in mid-2020 and looked for a successor and found one in Raphael Rohner and found one in Raphael Rohner.

However, it is not an adieu per se, but a farewell and reunion with new faces and fresh vigor. I am staying Secondhandbags.remain loyal to my role as a strategic consultant. I am overjoyed with the new partners at my side and look forward to the future with excitement.

The fast fashion industry is known for its significant environmental impact. Millions of tons of textile waste are produced every year and the production of new clothing consumes enormous amounts of water and energy. Added to this is the environmental impact of chemicals and dyes. Buying second-hand bags is an effective way to counteract this harmful trend and offer a more sustainable alternative to the fast fashion industry.

Second-hand bags are not only environmentally friendly, but also offer a wide range of unique styles and high-quality brands. Every used designer handbag that gets a second chance helps to promote the circular economy and conserve resources. By buying second-hand bags, you support the reduction of waste and promote more conscious consumer behavior.
