If you follow any influencers on Instagram, particularly those in the home and lifestyle space, you've likely seen a SMEG appliance or two.

And there's just no denying they photograph really, really well.
Gone are the days when the only way to buy or sell used clothing, shoes, or accessories was to venture to a thrift store or vintage outpost.
