Chanel Bags and Jewelry at Portero

Knowing that certain things never go on sale is one of the realities that most bag lovers face every day, but it doesn’t have to be. For so long, we’ve told ourselves that we have to buy designers like Chanel at full price, because the brand doesn’t put bags and jewelry on sale and buying secondhand can be risky – those were just the rules of the game. Like with so many things, though, the Internet has reordered the universe and brought us Portero, a site that allows you to confidently buy authentic, pre-owned Chanel bags, jewelry and accessories online, often at a huge discount from full retail. Somehow, it’s not too good to be true.

There’s a bustling resale market for Chanel handbags, costume jewelry and watches, and although the brand holds its value well, there’s still plenty of room for a discount off of full retail, even for a bag or accessory in pristine condition. Besides getting a good deal on a Classic Flap or a J12 watch, buying resale pieces also gives you access to Chanel’s extensive backlog of seasonal gems, including the uber-popular vintage Chanel Weekender that we’ve seen lots of starlets toting and holiday pieces like flap bags embellished for Valentine’s Day. Still can’t find that bag you passed up three years ago and still need desperately? Portero’s Find It For You service will work with its extensive network of sellers to track down that special something. Check out our favorites from the Portero Chanel selection below or shop the full assortment via Portero.

    I have had good experiences shopping from Portero in the past. My only issue is that a lot of times they list things above retail when they are a few seasons old.

  • QuelleFromage

    I’m with Lisa on this- the retail prices that Portero quotes are way off. They had an Hermès silver CDC at retail of $9K. They’re not $9K, they’re $3K. Like that vintage flap above that was never, ever $4800 and wouldn’t be today. This plus all the non-returnable bags and the talk about non-authenticity makes me very hesitant to buy there.

  • Nikita

    Portero is notorious for over stating the retail price! I remember when that Camellia flap was $3k, no way did it retail for $4.5k and most definitely would not be equal to the same price as a m/l flap. I hate seeing re-seller site markup items that are second hand.

  • Lauren

    Completely agree. Was just looking at some bags on Portero that I own – the retail prices were inflated by as much as 25-30 percent. It is very dishonest; I paid full retail for these bags at the Chanel boutique and did not pay nearly the amounts they are quoting as “retail.”
