live handbag auction featuring Chanel purses and Hermes Birkin bags that are no longer for sale in stores will be held later this month, and all the items are expected to be sold at steep discounts. In other words, this is your chance to score the designer handbag of your dreams!
The Heritage Signature auction will show a staggering 775 lots during the nearly six-hour event. According to the Wall Street Journal, "there are 135 pages of Hermes items in the catalog alone." Pre-bidding for bags starts online today, but the live auction takes place at 1 P.M. on April 28 at Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion in New York City.
The market for selling designer handbags at lower-than-retail prices is huge right now. If you can't make the auction, online resale sites like 1stDibs are a great resource. We recently wrote about how sites such as eDrop-Off are selling more than 2,500 products per week. Material Wrld and Fashionbagsuk.com offer up designer pieces straight from the closets of fashion insiders and tastemakers.
