Authenticity & 2nd Time Around

2nd Time Around is committed to accepting only authentic items to re-sell to our customers. We believe in regularly educating our staff with up-to-date information on the ever-changing black market so they can quickly detect inauthentic elements, right down to the crooked top-stitch or the specific color of the tarnish on hardware. 2nd Time Around hired Michael Tonello in 2015, a world-renowned Hermes authenticator, also AND with a deep knowledge-base of authentication for a variety of other luxury brands. Mr. Tonello works with our staff on a regular basis to authenticate pieces. Take a look at how we authenticate pieces here.

2nd Time Around has a no-tolerance policy for those who choose to try and use re-salers to peddle inauthentic items.
