I don't disagree with any of your post. 😊 Coach does have good resale value. (I didn't want to go into more detail because I felt my post was getting long.) And I would guess, its resale is still one of the better ones of department store brands. I was able to sell off my old ones easily. People still want the bags. But the quality now (while better than the 2000 - 2010 ish era) is not nearly as good as its heyday pre 1985. And it's resale isn't as good as some other more premier brands. So, at the end of the day, it's a mixed "bag". But someone should buy it when they love it with eyes wide open knowing the different factors.
