A little over a year ago I had the great pleasure of meeting Donae Chromosta of The Vintage Contessa, a designer handbag and jewelry resale expert. Because of her charm, sweet disposition, sassy and fun loving spirit Donae has quickly become a good friend and our November Wednesday Woman Crush!
Donae is now my go to resource for anything pre-owned Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Tiffany and more. I will say the gold Chanel bag photographed is off the market because it is now in my closet. When I saw it, I just couldn’t help myself. I have a couple of other things on my wish list that I love from her exquisite lineup of designer goods.
Please go to www.thevintagecontessa.com for a look at some of the many great pieces from her curated designer collections. She can also be reached firstname.lastname@example.org for private appointments where you can shop at her studio or consign your own designer items. At times she will even do trades. With the way full priced new luxury goods are climbing in price, the more it makes sense to look for pre-owned goods. Donae only deals with brands that have great resale value, so anything you buy from The Vintage Contessa you can almost guarantee a great investment if you should ever decide to sale. Donae and Rob have built a great business on return customers that no doubt become their friends.
With all of her fireball energy I knew that Donae was an accomplished young woman, but when I asked her to send me some of her recognitions and awards I was blown away. Below I have listed only a few of all of her many accomplishments.
