The Naughtipidgins Nest Passport (NPNP)
How it works
When you buy an item from Naughtipidgins Nest you will already know its 100% Authentic, its condition in great detail and what comes with it, (care cards, dustbag, etc). As from Feb 2013 any item purchased that has a unique serial number will also now have an NPNP.
It will include an identifying photo of your purchase, its serial number, full title, leather description and care instructions, so you can look after your item optimally.
Having this history and background, along with some important identifying information, such as the serial number and receipt, should also be a small measure in the ongoing fight against counterfeiting.
Where available, its first purchase-date and retail location will be provided and also a copy of the original receipt, as seen in the Photo Gallery, (so this receipt is uniquely linked to your item). After the 14 days return period, if you'd like the original receipt too, (all personal and financial information will be redacted,) just let me know.
Naughtipidgins Nest won't provide the names of previous owners, for privacy reasons, leaving subsequent owners to complete as much or as little information in the Passport as they are comfortable with.
Over time, a valid history can be built-up, giving new owners both a reassurance of authenticity and some interesting and valuable knowledge of its previous life.
Some bags can be so well travelled they have circled the globe more than once!
The NPNP will be free to all buyers and Naughtipidgins Nest will keep records of all Passports issued, so I will always be happy to verify validity should you find one accompanying an item for sale elsewhere.
However just a note of caution.....NPNP's are unique so copies will not be issued.
Keep them safe with your item as if its lost, its gone forever.
