Can anyone tell me if there is a place to buy authentic chanel purses online?
Not that I know of. Chanel are really picky about where they sell. I know for sure they don't sell online with any of the big department stores (e.g. Neiman Marcus, Barneys etc.) nor do they sell with e-tailers such as eluxury. Hopefully they will in the future though but meanwhile, it is possible to buy authentic Chanel on eBay but you have to be VERY picky who you buy from and what you buy because there are a lot of fakes about. Hope this helps!
please do a search, this is asked VERY often. you should be able to find a couple of reputable second hand dealers, but no one is permitted/authorized by Chanel to sell online.
