Trying to sell your used luggage on Poshmark? What about just not buying it in the first place?
By all accounts, the sharing economy is on fire, with everyone from Ikea to Anthropologie joining the party. Brands find a ready audience in consumers who want to focus on experience over materialism and others who, for reasons of budget or philosophy, want to live as asset-light as possible.
Like many categories popular with renters, luggage sits idle most of the time. It also has other characteristics—fashionability, functionality‚—that make it ideal for renting.
Luggage is a lot like a sparkly dress from Rent the Runway for a gala or skis for your annual trip to Jackson Hole: you need something that fits the occasion, functions well, and looks great, but you don't necessarily need to own it because you're not quite sure when you'll use it again.
And then there's the matter of the planet. Many renters rent to ease their conscience about the vast quantity of discarded goods filling landfills and oceans. Call it the fast-fashion backlash.
Luggage is no exception. That polycarbonate suitcase you're pining over is gorgeous and—plastic. Some day it will go to a landfill. Wouldn't you like to know it's been used to its full potential before it arrives?
That's why I'm here. I'm Casey, and I provide the most beautiful and practical luggage for rental.
