Our buying team carefully reviews all items in person. They are trained to look for hallmarks of authenticity, including materials, construction quality, and hardware. They review the interior and exterior of each item carefully.
After the initial authentication, select items are sent to our third party authentication partners, Entrupy or Real Authentication. Entrupy uses a microscopic camera and advanced AI technology to compare handbags to a massive database of known authentic and counterfeit items.
Items deemed to be authentic are priced and purchased from the supplier.
Items deemed to be inauthentic are returned to the supplier immediately or donated after 2 weeks of being unclaimed. Suppliers will be charged a $75 authentication fee (this fee excludes Hermes items).
We try not to rush! Please allow up to 2-3 business days for a full authentication of your items.
Please note: Suppliers will be charged an authentication fee.
Mine & Yours is able to authenticate handbags from the following brands through our third-party authentication Partner, Entrupy.
Authentication fee is $75 for all the mentioned brands and $150 for Hermes handbags.
Entrupy is considered to be the industry "gold standard" authenticator world-wide. When Entrupy authenticates an item and the item comes back as authentic, an instant digital certificate will be produced, which can be shared via text, email, or print. Each authentication certificate is given a unique link, hosted on Entrupy servers for buyer verification and every authentication certificate is backed by our financial guarantee for any incidental losses.
In the case of an item being inauthentic/unidentified, Entrupy provides reasons as to why that is. Please note, in some cases and mostly for newer bags, Entrupy might not be able to authenticate the item and therefore the authentication fee will be refunded.
Please call the store at 604 620 8885 to book an appointment before coming in for authentication.
