At Hertha’s Second Edition consignment store, we ensure each and every item we sell is guaranteed authentic.
Each piece in our inventory undergoes a rigorous, multi-point inspection process by our expert, in-house authentication. We also work with third-party authentication services to provide a certificate of authentication upon request. Only items that are backed by our full confidence in legitimacy and authenticity are accepted.
Our authentication process begins with a thorough inspection done by hand. We inspect materials, workmanship, details, any tags, labels, logos, date and/or serial codes, and identify the time period of each item. Extensive research is then conducted on each item’s style and brand, which includes side-by-side comparisons and critical examination of the materials, workmanship and manufacturing details.
Please contact us if you have any questions about our authentication and consignment process.
