The Gucci Collector

Have a piece or collection of vintage Gucci and ever pondered how much it might be worth? Well your in luck, Christie's is now offering the very first Gucci-certified online destination for appraising vintage double G products. Here's how it works: a team of experts including Christie's Specialists as well as Gucci's own in-house archivists will assess the item, and Christie's will provide an auction estimate for qualifying submissions. Select owners will have the opportunity to sell their items to Gucci, or in a future Christie's auction, if desired. Sounds like a pretty fab setup. Scour your closets, dust off those G's, you never know what something might be worth.
