Where to Buy Designer Handbags for Less

Boutiques
Whether you like designer totes, clutches or satchels, there is no need for you to pay retail prices for them. Many designer boutiques hold annual sales of designer handbags at a discounted price. These sales are seldom advertised and even your best friend will not let you now about them. The best way to know about these annual sales is to ask the high-end designer boutiques or be on their online privileged customer list. One of my friends snagged a great Fendi clutch at a 70 per cent discount. The best thing about purchasing designer handbags from sales is that you can get a very good bargain and you are also sure that you are buying a genuine product and not some cheap knockoff. Most high-end designers also try to sell all their handbags of the previous season at a very low price. So you should always look out for these clearance sales to snag a trendy piece for yourself.

Department Stores
I know you would love to get your hands on Hermes Berkin bag or a Chanel 2.25. But these premier designer handbags are very, very expensive. So the next best thing would be to go for designer handbags which are comparatively less pricey. Marc by Marc Jacobs and Chloe are two designer handbag labels that can be comparatively cheaper in price. Most department stores hold sales around mid year and they usually have a very good collection of designer handbags. All designers do not price their handbags in the same way and some designers do have reasonably priced handbags. When you like a particular handbag at a department stores sale, it is best that you purchase it immediately without overthinking about it. Believe me, I have lost out on many a good handbag because I didn’t buy the bag just then.

Online Stores
When you are thinking of purchasing a designer handbag, one great way to do so is to buy handbags online. There are many online stores that offers you great discounts as well as great variety. However make sure that the site sells only authentic designer handbags and not replicas or knockoffs. Periodically the fashion house itself holds online sales of previous seasons handbags, and this a great opportunity to buy designer handbags at the fraction of its original price. Kate Spade, Dooney and Bourke, Juicy Couture, Guess are some of the cheap designer handbag labels that you can have for under 50 dollars after sale.

These were some ways in which you can snag a designer handbag for less. One very important thing to remember while buying cheap designer handbags is that you should know how to spot a fake. Look carefully at the lining and the inside zipper as well as the stitching of the bag. Verify the logo so that you are sure that you are buying an original designer handbag. There is no use paying less, if you are not getting an authentic designer handbag.
