Mic Drop Moments

  • “When you have younger children you go for purses you don’t mind ruining, but now that my son is older I prefer nice quality because I like durability.” – Cindy Olah
  • My dream bag would be a Hermes Birkin bag. I think that's just like the quintessential classic and most iconic bag that you will have forever, which is another way to be the most sustainable is really to keep any item in use for as long as possible and then obviously pass it down to your children or you can also still resell it because they continue to hold their value.” – Paulina Petkoski
  • “A purse can really give you the confidence that you need to take on a new role in a new part of your life.” – Paulina Petkoski
  • “The ability to have something that you cherish and love and is high-quality, but also to see it go into its second life when it’s no longer serving you.” – Paulina Petkoski
  • “What I love about second-hand is that it’s going to be unique because it’s not this season’s. You’re not going to walk around and everyone has it.” – April Roberts
