Flagship Store in Chelsea Relaunched & Bespoke Concierge Service Unveiled
Our Flagship store, on Kings Road in Chelsea, has had a gorgeous new refurbishment and we wanted to show it off by hosting a spectacular VIP Event. That’s not all there was to celebrate, we also launched our brand-new bespoke Concierge Service… no wonder we wanted to throw a party!
From the comfort of their own home, clients can now book a consultation with our trusted team of dedicated technicians who will be on hand to audit, authenticate, value, clean, restore, and sell client’s designer handbags through our nationwide chain of stores and ecommerce platform… freeing up cash for clients to spend on their next purchase!
Our event host and Handbag Clinic Co-Founder, Charlotte Staerck (@lottie_helen), said: “ Since we opened the doors to our King’s Road store in 2015, we’ve seen a seismic shift in the marketplace with cult and vintage preloved handbags fetching higher prices than ever – they are seen as collector’s items and, in the face of Brexit uncertainty, a sound investment. We recognise that our clients have busy lifestyles and our new home consultation service aims to take the hassle out of reselling your once loved but seldom used handbags – we take care of absolutely everything. We hope that by bringing our services direct to people’s homes, we can empower people to monetise these hugely valuable assets and help them participate in the circular economy. When you consider that the average woman amasses a haul of 111 handbags in her lifetime, that’s an unmined treasure trove and worthwhile side-hustle for women everywhere.”
Set across 900 square feet over three floors, our Chelsea store first opened its doors in 2015. Following a recent capital injection, the store has been fully refurbished with a new pristine white colour scheme lending more prominence to the array of luxury handbags, which pop like jewels in all-new display units. Just hours before the event began, a huge 6ft by 5ft Birkin replica in shocking pink arrived outside the store, and it had the shoppers of Kings Road stopping in their tracks with intrigue and awe.
Let’s take a look at some of the familiar faces who popped in to see us:
Ex on the Beach star Jess Impiazzi (@jess_impiazzi) showed off her style credentials in an adorable polka dot crop top, while the lovely Sophie Hermann (@xxsophiehermannxx) wowed in an eye-catching structured emerald green top paired with skinny jeans.
Here we have Charlotte’s husband and fellow Co-Founder, Ben Staerck (@benstaerck), giving his handbag expertise to Paula Moore (@paulamoorestyle) from Woman and Home magazine, whilst the gorgeous @journo_jules strikes a pose!

As our VIPs posed for pictured next to our flower wall, provide by @prettypicturecompany, they were treated to tunes by the delightful DJ Hannah Gray (@hannahleegray), nibbles by Sticks n Sushi (@sticksnsushi), Champagne and goodie bags.
A member of our very own Handbag Clinic Atelier was on hand, using his mastery to give some TLC to our guests prized accessories while they waited.
A huge congratulations to Charlotte and our wonderful Chelsea Team! We’re excited for the success of our new Concierge Service and can’t wait for our lovely customers to see our Chelsea store’s gorgeous new make-over.
