What we do
Founded in 2016, ShopWorn is an innovative e-commerce website, the creation of retail veterans, brothers Richard and Larry Birnbaum. With over forty-five years' combined luxury-goods experience, they know how to source authentic, coveted, prestigious brands, and they built ShopWorn.com as the vehicle for selling these exclusive products at an advantageous price. ShopWorn is the only e-commerce website offering exclusively display-model items from high-end, desirable manufacturers at a deep discount, with savings of up to 80% off retail.
ShopWorn features watches, jewely, and accessories like elite writing instruments and small leather goods, all secured directly from manufacturers and their authorized, worldwide retailers. Every item on the ShopWorn website has a known origin. ShopWorn will buy only from manufacturers and their hand-selected, authorized retail partners. This policy assures trust and provides total transparency; there is never any question regarding provenance, as there can be in a consignment shop or a jewelry store that sells second-hand merchandise.
At ShopWorn, if merchandise is imperfect in any way, and fails ShopWorn's scrupulous tests, it cannot graduate to ShopWorn's internet sales floor; a wristwatch that has "flunked out" is sent elsewhere to find a wrist to call home, without ShopWorn's spotless imprimatur. Think of the website as your own personal boutique, with ever-changing, as-new merchandise offerings, curated by a knowledgeable sales staff.
How we do it
Nothing on the site has been pre-owned: ShopWorn is not a repository for used merchandise. With its long-standing and solid relationships with esteemed manufacturers, ShopWorn has the opportunity to secure display models that are virtually like new: They may have been in a showcase and were gently handled occasionally, or perhaps, they were never even tried on; or they sat in a vault and never saw daylight. There is complete transparency regarding where the merchandise has come from. Quality and condition are never sacrificed by ShopWorn's purchasing team, who know styles, trends, and fashion, in addition to having an uncanny knack for spotting an imperfection. Only the best merchandise makes it onto a ShopWorn internet page. If an item does not pass muster, it is not offered to ShopWorn's loyal and discerning clients.
After this judicious inspection by the company's crackerjack jewelers and quality-control experts, all goods are carefully photographed to give you—the passionate, selective collector, the generous gift-giver, or the stylish trend-setter—the most meticulous views of each item, so you know precisely what you are buying. Stock photos are never used; the pictures you see show the actual, inventory items. The origin and the manufacture of all ShopWorn's luxury merchandise is guaranteed authentic, and most watches come with the original packaging and paperwork. Additionally, all watches are sold with a two-year, international guarantee. The company ships worldwide (and free of charge to the contiguous 48 states).
