If you’re reading this right now, it means you’re probably a fan of luxury goods. It’s likely you either regularly or semi-regularly purchase designer bags and accessories, and you’ve also probably pondered at one point or another where designer bags cost the least. You probably already know that shopping in Europe can mean big savings, and with Euro falling equal to the US dollar, savings are becoming greater than ever, even with the ever-present price increases.
Now is as great of a time as ever to shop and save if you’re traveling to Europe, right? As summer winds down, some of us still have late summer trips to look forward to (read: me), but many of us are reminiscing on our summer travels (and hopefully some summer purchases).
To Shop or Not to Shop
Before Summer officially comes to a close later in September, I’m heading over to Portugal for a trip two years in the making. I don’t have anything super specific on my mind, aside from the usual list of bags that live rent-free in my head, but as the trip nears, I keep wondering how deep the discounts really are. I would typically get a bag at the end of the year, and even though I’m not leaning towards anything in particular right now, would I be silly not to take advantage of the current market?
Have you shopped in the European market this summer since the Euro fell? What did you buy? Was the discount really worth it?
