There are a few reasons why it’s a good idea to buy a secondhand luxury handbag. The first reason is that you can buy Chanel Bags at a steep discount. Several of these vintage Chanel bags are going for way under retail price.

It is important to note that when you are buying preloved Chanel bags that many of them are used / preloved and may need to be treated, conditioned or sometimes repaired. What I love about buying Preloved Chanel bags is the fact that many of these bags are over 10 years old and they appear to be in good condition! Chanel bags from the 90s and early 2000s, the quality and craftsmanship is unmatched. 

When shopping for preloved bags, you need to make sure the place you are buying from has a good authentication process. Which is why I highly recommend shopping at these 3 online places for Discounted Chanel Bags: Fashionphile, Rebag, and TheRealReal.

First on the list is this Chanel Vintage Quilted Shoulder Bag, and it’s giving me all sorts of early 2000s vibes. This Vintage Chanel is priced under 1k and it’s by far my favorite on the list. What I love is the instantly recognizable classic quilted Chanel pattern, and the gold chain link accent. This Vintage Chanel bag can be easily worn on your shoulder.

Keep in mind, any vintage bag is going to have some wear and tear on the outside (which can be cleaned with leather conditioner). Normally, if a vintage bag has wear and tear on the inside I'm not too worried about it since nobody sees the inside of the bag.

The next Chanel bag for under 1k is this Chanel Jersey Quilted CC Chocolate bar color in burgundy. This rich burgundy color is just wow. I love everything about this bag, the color, the small size, and even the subtle Chanel logo on the front.

The best part about this Chanel bag is the price, which comes in slightly under $900. While the strap isn’t long enough to wear as a crossbody bag, it definitely makes for a great shoulder bag.  I also found a Chanel Lambskin one in the beige color which is priced at $850. This is definitely one of the cheapest Chanel bags on the list and definitely worth the price! This Chanel Model comes from the 2003 Circa!

I love a good Chanel Caviar bag, and this Chanel Caviar Hobo bag is giving me 2012 vibes all over again, and I love it. This bag is big and a tad oversized, and mini bags are all the rage at this moment. HOWEVER, bigger bags will return into style again, and right now big bags are selling at a steep discount, which is why now is the time to add a big vintage bag to your collection, and I think this Chanel Caviar Hobo bag is perfect. 

Size ( LXWXH)15″ X 10″ X 4.75″ in

The reason why I love Caviar Chanel bags compared to Lambskin Leather is they are built to last. The Caviar leather helps minimize the appearance of scratches, wear and tear, and withstands the test of time. Priced at $990, this discounted Chanel bag in my opinion is a steal, and definitely won't last long.
