For most people, aside from a very small percentage of the population (you know those uber-rich unicorns), a thousand dollars is a pretty large sum of money. Though those isanely rich—money-is-no-object—kind of people definitely make up a portion of those that buy luxury goods, they aren't the majority. Large brands and luxury houses are well aware of the everyday shoppers like you and I who lead relatively normal lives but still want to have something nice to carry around from time to time. That's where the importance of having bags under the $1,000 price-point comes into play. Almost every season you can find these gems, if and only if you know where and what to look for. Hint: basic totes, wallet-on-chains, and you guessed it, mini-bags, are usually on the more affordable side.
Finding bags with a three figure price tag is relatively challenging, but it is doable. Bag prices are getting higher and higher, with many bags being priced well into the 2,000 and 3,000 dollar price range, and it is interesting to note what just under 1K will actually get you. Below we've got 10 bags for Spring 2019 that won't break the bank, so as tax season comes to its inevitable close feel free to put that return to good use.
