I have the same regret on CFs and here I am now super late to the game buying them. Ugh!I regret not buying Chanel sooner when the ML flap was around $5k and look at the prices now! Also, regret not buying more caviar mini flaps. Lambskin minis are too delicate and show wear quicker than caviar leather. I own one mini flap in lambskin and it is beautiful but rarely carry it. The fact that I have a small collection helps me get over regret as I really don't need anymore bags.
If there is any consolation, we are not alone in wishing we had bought CFs earlier prior to those aggressive price hikes!I have the same regret on CFs and here I am now super late to the game buying them. Ugh!
Have you tried using patent cleaner?Lived in dry weather for 5 years, humid weather for another 5. But they are in such bad condition, I cannot sell them in my right conscience.
Haven't been able to throw them out yet, so we'll see.
I had a similar situation with a bag, but I waited and waited and finally one appeared in perfect condition on resale market for not much markup!A couple of months ago I saw a black small gabrielle backpack in my local boutique and LOVED it. Like REALLY loved it. I didn't have the funds to spare at the time to buy it though, so I had to leave it. I still think about that bag and probably will for quite a while!
Yea, I see some gabrielle backpacks on the resale markup for less than 4000 sometimes, and they look like they're in pretty good shape. I'm probably going to go that route soon! But I recently bought a new thing from Chanel that's eating up funds for this year ;pI had a similar situation with a bag, but I waited and waited and finally one appeared in perfect condition on resale market for not much markup!
