Our Story

Our Mission

Exquisite Artichoke celebrates fashion masterpieces. Our mission is to bring a safe and trusted atmosphere to lovers of rare, vintage and pre-owned Hermès, as can be achieved only by fellow Hermès fanatics. We strive to serve you the ultimate in shopping experiences, while promoting sustainable practice by giving renewed life to the beloved classics of yesteryear that will never fade out of style.

Who We Are

Based in New York City, Exquisite Artichoke has worked tirelessly to create a one-stop shop for your secondhand Hermès needs. Since our launch in 2011, we sought to pair carefully curated beauty and elegance with unparalleled product knowledge and the most trusted authentication practices. We know that investing in something special over the Internet can be a daunting task. We try to make that decision a tiny bit easier by offering a 5 day return policy on all of our items. If the piece you purchase does not pan out for you in person, send it back to us for a refund, or trade it in for something else.

How It All Began 

It all started in 2011 with two young entrepreneurs, a passion for vintage Hermès, and the vision to pioneer the dream specialty boutique that we always sought to find ourselves but never could. From humble beginnings to devoted clients across every continent and an ever-expanding e-commerce platform, the story of Exquisite Artichoke has only gotten more exciting over the years. The people, the products and the heart behind Exquisite Artichoke is what has made it into what it is today. For us, our story has only just begun, and we already can’t wait for the next chapter!
