She’s beautiful, congrats!Just bought a vintage medium CF in caramel lambskin and 24k gold-plated for 4800€.
That’s a big chunk of money but I was willing to pay that price as I was searching high and low for this specific color for so so long.
But when I think that I paid « only » 2200€ for a medium CF in black LB and 24k gold plated back in 2020, this is just crazy to see how prices have gone up so fast
Here’s a photo of my prized possession.

I try to not think too much about what preloved bags go for when they were first sold new but yes it’s hard not to Earlier this year I bought a 13-year-old classic flap at a price that was several times what it was first bought at but with the crazy price increases, it was more than $3k less than what a new one would cost. Told myself not much I can do there, if I didn’t want to spend the crazy price on a new bag. Also bought a pre loved mini reissue that was sold for several hundred above its retail price four years ago, but it was in a seasonal leather/finish that I really wanted.
I think if the condition of the pre loved bag is excellent, I wouldn’t mind paying more than the original retail price but yeah I personally wouldn’t pay more than what the bag would go for today at the boutique.
