Deciding to buy the latest and trending handbag in the market, we go to all the luxury brand stores and look at tens of bags until we find “the one”. We pay an exorbitant amount for the bag which at that time, hypnotized by its beauty and brand, we don’t seem to mind. We happily take it home and carefully safeguard it. We take it out to a party and proudly show off to a huge awed crowd. We feel the flutter of pride in our heart at the touch of luxury on our skin and we can’t believe how happy a handbag can make us. Then we go home and keep it safely inside the closet where there are many such bags. Then comes the next party and you can’t find the right bag that accentuates the colour of your dress. So you go shopping again. What happens to the ones you bought just a month back? Nothing. It remains there eagerly waiting to be picked up whenever the closet door opens. And that never happens. This is when an idea struck in the mind of Vivek Kejriwal to give a new home for used luxury goods by starting DuaVivo. Read Business News.
