Thanks for this! Maybe it's the consignment store markup but it's actually £2199 which is around $2700 :oh:. It's my first time buying preloved Chanel so I'm trying to figure out whats worth it and what isn't. Originally I was looking for a vintage small classic flap but came across this and thought it would be a good casual, everyday bag but your estimate has definitely made me rethink it!
Gosh! I agree with the above reply completely! I think that price is excessive but any item is only worth what you (one) is prepared to pay! Too much for me! Good luck!

I’m glad to help. However, I have definitely paid over the market rate when I really fell in love with something. Just keep in mind that there will be a lot of options in your price range, maybe look for a seasonal flap that you really love. In general, the resale prices are best for very trendy styles (e.g. 19 bag) along with newer or pristine classic flaps; closer to your price objective will be mini flaps, some seasonal flaps, some boys, and vintage classic flaps in OK but not pristine condition; lower still would be less sought-after seasonal bags (usually the best resale value are the ones that “look like” classic flaps) and misc vintage bags. If you tire of this one, be aware you will only be able to sell it for ~1/2 of the purchase price, but if you use it a lot you will more than get your money’s worth! Funky vintage bags are very in style now, but that was not the case in the past and may not be in a few years in the future.

I don't understand the use of the micro slgs and mini vanity cases I keep seeing in the recent collections. The newest collection has even more oddball vanity shapes coming. What are these even useful for???? So confused -they don't fit a phone and some can't even fit a small card holder. What goes inside? :confused1: It's like $2200 to hold some chapstick and a key?

Hmm not really. Maybe you just need to find a better sa!! Did you find your mini? My sa has green, turquoise, and a few shades of red in the rectangle mini size if you're interested

Any opinions on this zipped coin purse wristlet? My thought is that I would use this and carry my phone by hand or put my phone in my pocket (as I am carrying fewer things now).

I have a question regarding serial numbers... hopefully it’s ok if I post it here, I didn’t want to make an entire new thread on it lol.

I noticed that the jumbo I just bought is a 26 series... an older 26 series as it starts with 261... and I am wondering if the bags can sit in the boutiques for that long (?) I bought it from a Chanel boutique at NM. It’s a lambskin jumbo, which I know lamb isn’t as popular as caviar so maybe that’s why. Does that happen sometimes? Anyway, here she is for reference.

Absolutely possible, yes :smile: My Boutique still keeps bags from 2017 that did not sell. I know that those usually land in the employee sale after a certain amount of years. The only unfortunate thing about it is that they don’t honor the prices from the seasons those bags are from.

Hello to you all!
I could use some advice:sad:. I bought a Chanel boy card case about 3 weeks ago. I’ve used it since then almost every day, but was very careful with it. I didn’t throw it around or carry it in the pockets of my denims. And now the leather has started to peel off. I feel like there’s a thin film on the caviar leather that comes off now. You can see those little white spots on the photos. Has anybody seen that before? I haven‘t had those issues before on my caviar pieces. I’m very disappointed about this poor quality:tdown::crybaby:...
