The Westmount Independent

By Martin C. Barry - June 4, 2013

Westmounter Alice Goldbloom launched an on-line handbag-retailing business in April. She said it is attracting customers from all over the world, and until recently a surprising amount of her consigned stock was being supplied by Westmount residents.

"In the beginning there was a lot, although now they're coming in from all over" says the Anwoth Rd. resident who launched LOVEthatBAG.ca two months ago.

Goldbloom's side specializes in the sale of beautiful handbags on consignment- from high-end designer bags by Ferragamo, Fendi and Dior, to more moderately-priced vintage pieces. They range in price from $100 to $2,000.

Goldbloom said she uses a simple business model: she only accepts handbags in excellent condition and she will ship anywhere - even to Westmount.

Some of the bags are for sale at Nee Nah on Victoria Ave. In turn, Goldbloom carries some of Nee Nah's jewelry and scarves on the LOVEthatBAG website.

About Wear Condition

Our team works incredibly hard to photograph & describe all crucial details of each preloved handbag and accessory. We encourage customers to look at the product on several screens prior to purchase as screen calibration may adjust the appearance of a color. Please be sure to read each description & take note of all wear prior to purchase. 

Mint - No signs of wear. Usually unworn.

Excellent A few signs of noted wear. This could include small marks, light scuffs and a bit of rubbing to corners. These can appear near mint, or seem very lightly worn.

Very good - Several signs of noted wear. This could include more noticeable marks, light scratches and corner rubbing. These range from lightly worn to moderately worn.

Good - Many signs of wear or few signs of extensive wear. This could include dark marks or stains, deeper scratches and visible signs of age. Never appearing on the exterior of our bags, this is a rare condition sometimes found on the interior of a bag that will appear heavily worn inside.
