About Us

The Hosta offers an expertly curated collection of authenticated pre-owned and luxury bags.

Established in spring 2020 under the discerning eye of founder Danni Dance – with 17 years' experience developing handbags at renowned brands like COS, Hunter, and Nanushka. We are based in the UK and are rated Excellent on Trustpilot.
Since our launch, we’ve continued to expand our selection of beautiful pieces, with new items arriving daily. Our aim is to consistently offer customers a distinctive selection, honouring the craftsmanship and the creators from some of the world’s most iconic designer brands. Each of our items is priced competitively, and often up to -50% off of its retail price.

Sustainability is paramount

Fashion is a leading polluter, but at The Hosta, we champion buying pre-owned as a direct step toward eco-conscious choices. Each of the items we hand select is of high quality and long lasting to continue to be enjoyed.

Purchasing pre-owned not only extends an item's life but also reduces the environmental cost of new production.

  • We're committed to making high fashion more accessible and affordable, while also promoting the circular economy to lessen the impact on the environment.
  • We’re committed to doing everything in our power to keep these beautiful items in use and reduce what goes to landfill.
