Hi everyone

I‘ve decided to get the classic caviar zip wallet with gold hardware and have a bit of a dilemma... I found the wallet online for EUR 430 pre-loved (https://uniquedesignerbags.com/designer-bags/chanel-small-caviar-zip-wallet/) and found the same piece in the boutique yesterday for CHF530. I did a rough computation and found that the difference between buying pre-loved and brand new is about CHF40 (including tax etc). Would you still buy pre-loved or just get it brand new?

Thanks so much for the help!!

Buy brand new! The difference of chf 40 is too insignificant. Additionally it’s best to buy SLGs to get the boutique experience of Chanel.

Since wallets are more personal and I will be using it everyday, I prefer to buy brand new. Bags can be preloved, doesn’t bother me.

Absolutely true ! From what i have seen - pre loved market and resellers mark up a lot for slgs because they have to make their fees . So buying a slg from a reseller or pre loved is not worth!

U will get a variety of options plus a good experience shopping in store.
