Fashion people are hard to shop for, and vintage lovers especially so. Walking into a consignment shop or secondhand store and knowing what’s real and what’s fake, let alone what is cool and what’s not, can be an insanely difficult task for anyone but the most seasoned of vintage shoppers, and if you’re trying to find one a nice Christmas present, well, godspeed.

If your budget is extravagant, though, the vintage gods of What Goes Around Comes Around may be able to help with their selection of new-to-you Chanel handbags. ShopBop has been carrying the company’s Chanel finds for quite some time now, and some new pieces have come in just in time for the holidays. If you have a keen eye, you can probably find vintage Chanel for less, but with these pieces the authenticity is guaranteed. If your budget is a bit smaller (but still quite large), ShopBop also has a metric ton of Chanel costume jewelry available. The above bags are priced at $2995 and $2860, respectively.

Shop vintage Chanel via ShopBop!

    Coveted classics! Agree that authenticity issue is imperative while shopping for designer vintage, especially Chanel or Hermes. That’s why for a novice it’s perhaps safer to shop on specialty sites like ShopBop rather than eBay. However, there are so many other sites specializing in high-end vintage and secondhand, like It’s always great to have options.

    chanel chanel chanel, one girl can never have enough chanel. However, One thing I do have to complain is the hardware of chanel needs major improvment, it gets rusty so easily. and trust me, I baby all my handbags and I store them well too..i talked to chanel boutique ladies so many times for the past many years..they are much aware of the problem..but still..who is the manufacture of the cc logo and chain leather? India or China?? Step up!

    I’ve always preferred the vintage bags design to the new ones so even though you can get a new one for the same price, it’s not the same coz you cant get the same design anymore.

    Wish there is an online store that still carries the large navy blue chanel 2.55. Was told it is unlikely to be restocked at stores and too chicken shit to buy from ebay in case I end up paying for an imitation. Sigh.. (ipad)

    Hi, anyone knows how much the Medium Chanel Classic Flap bag is in US??

  • Louise

    Hi everyone!
    Aren’t these bags gorgeous!
    If you are purchasing a bag, perhaps you’d like to have a look at a guide I wrote about distinguishing authentic Chanel from the fakes.
    I’m definitely no expert but if you’d like a look here is the address:
    Hope that helps!
    Good luck!

  • Kate

    J’adore! A girl could do worse than vintage Chanel… I am always on the look out for original pieces like these! I found a stunning Jumbo with oversized interlocking CCs during a recent trip to Paris. The shop is called Les 3 marches de Catherine B… but, if you can’t make it to Paris, be sure to check out the online boutique at You are sure to find something amazing!
