For the Love of Vintage Handbags
Most of us have a handbag that remains a crush. A bag that no matter how often you stumble upon it, your feelings for it never waver.
For me, that's the Hermes Herbag. It is not their most iconic bag - that's reserved for the Birkin or the Kelly - but it is a fan favorite. The Herbag is a more affordable option ($1500 to $2500) and resembles Hermes Kelly a bit.
My beloved Hermès Herbag was discontinued in the mid-00s so I spend waaaay too much trolling vintage consignment and resale sites - and waiting to strike. You'll be the first to know when I do!
Here are some of my favorite Considered Shop offerings in vintage bags and wallets:
The Birkin ranges from $10,000 for a standard leather, up to $2million for the Sac Bijou Birkin. This Hermès bag is crafted from rose gold inlaid with 2,712 diamonds.
The Himalaya Birkin is no slouch and available both with and without diamonds. The Diamond Himalaya is infamous for being the most expensive handbag ever sold at auction. In 2017, the Diamond Himalaya Birkin sold for over $400,000 USD.
