Why Buy Vintage Designer Accessories vs. New

Let's say you’re on the hunt for a new bag. Before you head to the nearest Chanel store, think about purchasing a vintage gem instead. Of course, new bags are wonderful in all their new bag glory, but there’s something really special about a vintage piece.
For starters, you’re going to save some money. Granted, if you’re in the market for a new
designer bag, saving money might not be at the forefront of your mind, but it’s never a bad thing to save a bit, right?
Aside from the money factor, the history behind a vintage find is something you can’t beat. It’s a one of a kind item that can never be exactly replicated, and imagine where this item might have been. Maybe it’s the bag she wore on her wedding day or the bag she bought on her honeymoon in Italy or a bag that was handed down from her great grandmother. It’s a piece of history, and it’s really neat that the story will live on in your life and on your adventures and travels.
Another reason it’s great to buy vintage is because sometimes certain styles will no longer be made down the road or if they are a classic that does, in fact, continue to live on, sometimes parts of it will be changed. Some of these vintage beauties you’ll never be able to find again. It’s not just about bags, but jewelry and watches are also items you should buy vintage, when possible.
There’s something so incredible about vintage, designer treasures. Vintage bags and
accessories you’ll have forever, and if you decide, at some point, to do away with the item for whatever reason, someone else will then be able to carry on the memories you had with this bit of history.
