PurseBop’s Top 5 Christie’s Picks

Part I: PurseBop’s Invited… And You are Too! 
Part II: PurseBop’s Debut at Christie’s – What’s Your HGB?
Part III: What’s Your Holy Grail Bag?
Part IV:  Christie’s Auction “This or That” Showdown

Dear PurseBop family, we are so excited to wrap up our whirlwind Christie’s journey with one last minute behind-the-scenes look at some Hermès beauties. With two of the three Handbags and Accessories summer auctions complete, PurseBop is honing in on the final of the trio: the online-only NYC auction that will be going on for three more days, ending on June 22.

PurseBop has been spending time in NYC and taking a close look at the handbags in person. After inspecting bags upon bags with the help of the Christie’s team, she’s finally decided upon 5 favorites—but not without great difficulty given the stunning spectrum of bags on display!

All 5 of these bags, PurseBop believes, are worthy of the title “Holy Grail Bag,” a topic we considered in great depth on the Christie’s website a few weeks ago. (Read: What’s your HGB? Let PurseBop Help you Decide.) Take a look at PurseBop’s top five picks from the online auction below… and keep reading for a special surprise at the end!
