One woman’s used designer bag is another woman’s beloved new addition. No one knows this better than Sarah Davis, a fashionista who has been expanding women’s purse collections without deflating their wallets since 1999.
From struggling student to enterprising entrepreneur.
In 1999, Sarah Davis and her husband were broke graduate students struggling to pay their bills.

Sarah Davis’s Fashionphile has grown to be the largest reseller of designer handbags in the United States.
