someone I know is selling a secondhand Chanel Flap bag, series 18, brand new with all the tags / box / dust bag for $2800 — such a good price! But I’m just an analyst and idk if I can justify (cont.)

Dude that’s SUCH a good price. I’m also a first year analyst and have similar saved up but I’d snatch that up in a heartbeat. Chanel/ are excellent investments! But, do make sure it’s real first

Yeah... i was gonna encourage you at first, but after realizing that it is tweed then maybe not. I would only consider leather or denim for maintenance purposes, plus if you cannot justify the price, always keep in mind that you have your entire career to get that bag you love ❤️ I wouldn’t sacrifice 10% of my savings for a bag, and I have multiple luxury handbags I just don’t think getting it for a “good deal” would make you happy (at least for me I felt ver insecure when I carried my luxury bag out when I was a student but bought it with my hard earned money even ) unless it truly reflects the purchasing power you have

helpful

That’s an incredible deal! That said, buy the bag because you love it and not only because it’s a Chanel. I see a lot of people buying handbags because it was such a good deal for XYZ brand rather than buying because they love the bag AND got it at a reasonable price. The former group of women always end up regretting their purchases. Like others have noted, it is in an investment piece, but you should still feel excited and happy every time you look at the bag.

Seems too good to be true. Why is she selling it for so cheap when she can make double that price. I’m a little skeptical to be honest.

Btw I recently sold my Chanel boy bag for $5900, which I bought last year in Paris for $4000. These Chanel bags appreciate in value, rather than depreciate, so I would pass on this bag that you’re looking to buy.

The bag is tweed that’s why

... the price. I have 30k put away from my first year working, so should I reward myself? Feel free to tell me if I’m crazy, it’s just such a beautiful bag

Get it!

FREAKING DO IT! because it’s covid, luxury items are not being produced hence why stores are raising the prices. $2800 is nothing! I suggest you do it.

If it’s a real Chanel and the bag is untouched take it. If you don’t like the bag check on Therealreal for how much you can sell it, maybe you can just spin it and make some money

Can you pm me?

That’s an awesome deal!! Also, might sound weird but you might feel better about it buying it now vs later, if later you’re trying to save up for something big like a house. I bought one a few years ago and due to my current situation I’d be less likely like buy it now so I’m glad I already have it.
