Hi lovelies!
I've been on the hunt for a while for a vintage small classic flap. It will be my first Chanel purchase ever!

Amore Vintage Japan is selling this bag for 325,000 yen (around $3082USD or $4364AUD - I'm in Australia).

The bag looks to be in good condition to my untrained eye but doesn't come with authenticity card/dustbag/box, only the serial sticker which is very old and hard to read. They've told me it's a 0 series bag.

I've attached a heap of pictures that they've sent me. I'd love anyyyyy feedback/help at all on making this purchase decision! Is it a good price/what are your thoughts on the condition?

Much love and many thanks!

I’m from Sydney. That’s really expensive when converted to Aussie dollars. Have you checked eBay? I wouldn’t pay more than 3.5k aud personally.

I think that bag is in great condition for a decent price! If you’re comfortable paying a little more, Amore Tokyo is a reputable seller and I’ve had positive experiences with them.

I've been stalking eBay for ages and unless I'm mistaken all the prices have gone up with the price increase.... all the bags I'm finding on there are around 4.6-5. Are there any sellers you can recommend that are cheaper that I've completely missed?

That's comforting to hear! Thank you!
Do you think the blurry serial/lack of card etc would be a problem? I'm definitely happy to pay a little more for the right bag in better condition but I don't want to jump the gun if it's too expensive for what it is :hrmm:

I might be the wrong person to ask about cards/accessories! I personally don’t care as much about those and am not sure how much more id be willing to pay that.
