How to Save on Bags That Never Go on Sale

Chanel Flap Bags


Luxury shoppers are very savvy when it comes to seeking out designer handbags at great prices. With each sale season, comes a new wave of blog posts listing websites and boutiques with the best deals on luxury purses. There’s always a catch though, as many of you have likely figured out by now. Sale bags are often limited to that one very “fashion-forward” shade of pink that Gucci did last season or the Phillip Lim tote that never quite made it to “It Bag” status.

Beyond the sales racks, for the many eagle-eyed designer bag shoppers, lies another option to buy designer bags for less – luxury resale. Often times, a preloved shop will have a mint condition designer purse for way less than the retail ticket still available on the shelves of the high-end boutiques.

Below is our list of great designer handbags that are still available in stores. Seriously, why pay retail?
