And all items excluding jewellery, will come with a certificate of authenticity from the world’s leading authentication company, Real Authentication, the founders say.

The business will trade online and have a showroom at the premises of manufacturer English Pewter Company, at 409 Petre Street, Grimesthorpe.

Managing director Jason Sharp said it would be the first of its kind in Sheffield.

When setting prices a lot depended on condition and demand - used Chanel bags saw prices increase by 16 per cent  between 2022-23, Mr Sharp said.

He added: “Specialist stores like this are quite rare and are normally focused in major cities like London, Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.

“It will be nice to see Sheffield also on the map for this fast-growing sector of sustainable luxury fashion.

“My brother and I have long had an idea for this kind of business, and when space became available at our manufacturing site, we considered the option for whether this would be suitable for the pre-loved luxury idea.

“It’s our view that this kind of niche retail does not necessarily require your usual retail space. We will be servicing clients across the country through the website and social media channels like you would from any normal warehouse.

“However, we also wanted to bring a boutique-style experience for the local catchment area and so transformed the space into a retail space that hopefully the people of Sheffield and beyond can enjoy.”

The shop would be appointment only, he added.
