Aside from my love for beauty products, I also have an affinity for designer handbags. If you keep up with designer fashion then you know that Chanel is the mecca of all designer handbags (other than Hermes). Over the last few years, I’ve slowly acquired beautiful timeless bags and it’s become a hobby of mine.
Not too long ago I made a groundbreaking purchase—without breaking the bank. It almost sounds too good to true but I bought my first Chanel bag—a classic quilted lambskin wallet on chain— for just a fraction of the retail price.
While I’ve always daydreamed of walking into a Chanel boutique, trying on some handbags and walking out with the iconic bag of my choice in its beautiful gift wrap, I never could fathom paying thousands of dollars for a handbag (unless I win the lottery or something). Instead, I opted to buy my first Chanel WOC pre-owned through a luxury designer reseller website… and it was the best decision I made.
Have you been eyeing a designer handbag lately but can’t seem to justify its retail price? You may want to consider buying a pre-loved version of your dream bag. I had such a great experience that I thought it would be helpful to share some tips for buying pre-owned luxury handbags and avoid some of the mistakes I *almost* made along the way.
