Something old, not something new, these vintage bags are tried and true
I had you at vintage Chanel, didn’t I? While I’m sure the feeling of walking out of a Chanel store with a brand new bag in hand is unlike any other (and one I’ve yet to experience myself!), something about purchasing a vintage Chanel bag has really got my gears going. Depending on the item, purchasing pre-loved can mean saving a bit of money, not to mention I like something about the idea of owning a vintage Chanel piece over a new one. I’m not sure why, as I’m not usually one that looks to purchase a pre-loved item, but in this instance, I’ve been all googly-eyed over the internet’s current offerings. Below, I’ve rounded up 15 of the best vintage Chanel pieces I’ve come across in my current state of obsessive searching and scrolling.

Vintage Chanel Mini Flap Bag
$3,150 via Shopbop
As for the Chanel Bags Used Boy Bag, which can be said to be next on the Chanel cost increase list, what shoppers are hearing is another $400 cost increase. We’ll keep you posted when that will happen–some say about March–but if you are interested at a Boy handbag, now is your chance to catch it before it also goes up in cost. Last week we published over 100 images of new Chanel bags and their prices, and any experienced handbag veteran knows what this means: a second haul of Chanel pockets on series (WOCs), wallets, card cases, coin purses and other small leather products, coming right up. And today, that’s exactly what we have: Chanel Pre-Collection Spring 2018 accessories, lots of in lovely shades of light pink and blue, in addition to some super-gorgeous exotics.This collection drops to the new pricing arrangement for Chanel small leather goods that Megs reported recently, but in going through the seasonal inventory, things did not feel that different–Chanel prices have long been a tiny astronomical, which does not seem to faze the brand’s many loyal fans. Have a look at the new goodies below–they will be in stores any day now.In my mind, there is just a good thing about the dreary period of late January we’re in right now: a new Chanel set of bags across which to fawn. Luckily, Chanel Pre-Collection Spring 2018 has came with colors both bright and light to remind us that warmer weather is indeed on the road. And this time, the brand has been generous with us : the lookbook comprises more than a hundred bags, nearly never noticed before.
Ok, if we’re talking Chanel it doesn’t get more classic than a black, quilted leather mini flap bag with gold hardware. This is the holy grail for me right here.

If there’s one vintage item in particular that I’m obsessed with owning it’s a Chanel Xxl Bag 2016 Vanity Case.

It just seems so glamorous to me, and I picture it being owned by a chic, jet-setting woman.
