As you guys remember, I recently purchased my first Chanel bag… and it was EXPENSIVE! Despite all of the compliments I received on this exquisite black and gold creation, it was definitely an investment piece and I don’t feel that I need many of these in my collection.
While searching for a designer bag, I was looking specifically for something very unique and standout as I knew that if I wanted a classic Chanel flap bag, it makes more sense to purchase a vintage one on the website like Trendlee which sells authentic designer handbags at a fraction of a price.While I admire the quality and the look of my recent Chanel purchase, I think that the upcoming purses for my collection would be previously loved pieces as it just makes so much more sense.
What’s The Price Difference for Vintage Designer Bags?
Take a look, for instance, at this gorgeous Louis Vuitton Speedy Handbag that you see in these pictures. It comes in perfect condition and is so much more affordable than a new one. For instance, the newest version of the Speedy Handbag costs $970 at Louis Vuitton website (but it doesn’t feature the front pocket which makes the bag even more expensive).
While you can purchase the vintage version of the bag for just $788 (if you use the discount code STYLESPRINTER for a 5% off discount; the price doesn’t include the tax and shipping). I feel that it’s a really good deal, not to mention that it’s more eco-friendly to purchase vintage bags as opposed to new ones.
How to Figure Out If Your Vintage Bag is Authentic?
I really appreciate the fact that every purchase you make at Trendlee comes with an authenticity certificate which guarantees that the bag you are purchasing is not fake. I know so many girls who are into purchasing designer bags and shoes on eBay, but I don’t trust this website that much as you never know if you are purchasing a real thing or just a cheap counterfeit handbag which you would not be able to return in case you don’t like it (yes, check out the eBay policies—you can’t return things you purchased there).
There is a completely different story with Trendlee which does not only guarantee that bag is real, but also will accept any returns if for some reason you decide to change your mind. I don’t think that would be an issue though considering that the website lists only those vintage bags that look like new.
