An entire industry has grown around delivering the luxury, second-hand goods of our dreams – items than can cost anything from two grand to over two hundred grand.
This documentary follows the staff of Xupes, a Hertfordshire-based business hoping to corner the market in pre-owned luxury handbags, watches and jewellery, as they go the extra mile to get the exact items for their clients and revealing the often highly personal stories behind them.
Window cleaner Grant’s dad wants to buy him a Cartier watch to go with the timepiece that Grant got from his late mother. Rebecca asks Head of Handbags Reece to scour the globe for an exact match for a stolen Prada bag that also had a special, family connection for her. And Kristen wants the thrill of buying herself a dream Chanel bag for her birthday, to add to her bulging collection.
Second Hand To Fifty Grand airs this Spring on Channel 4.
