Every fall, without fail, we look forward to the rich textures and warm hues the cold weather brings to our wardrobes. We already showed you some of our favorite burgundy bags to covet this season (and, might I add, we’re still swooning), but handbags aren’t the only way to showcase this gorgeous shade.


As you’ve probably noticed (you’re observant!), premier designer brands price the majority of their handbags between $1,500 and $3,000, and a select few even manage to exceed that average range for everyday leather pieces. Those are the bags we most often cover because they’re usually the pieces with the most interesting details and variations, and because of that, they generate the lion’s share of the consumer interest.

Waltzing into a boutique or pulling up your favorite retailer’s website and buying a new bag at full price is great (trust us, we love it), but it’s not the only way. For the huge number of consumers who want to find a good deal, search down a bag they missed in seasons past or find a way to access designs that may not otherwise be readily available to them in their hometowns or online, a new cottage industry has sprung up: designer bag resale sites.
