Top 6 Christie’s Picks

As PurseBop reported earlier, Christie’s is in the middle of its New York City online auction. This comes at the perfect time as the  holiday season enters full swing. This year’s selection is wonderfully diverse, ensuring that there is something perfect for every bag lover. So whether you’re buying presents or looking to add to your own holiday haul, all people on the nice list can rejoice!

All selections are on view in NYC until December 5th, when the auction ends. It is best to register online in advance to bid, which you can do here. PurseBop was able to make the trip out to the Big Apple and meet with Caitlin Donovan, US Head of Sales, to see the bags up close and personal. Of course, PurseBop fell in love with many a bag, and Caitlin and PurseBop each selected their favorite three from this winter auction. Their exciting day is fully documented on the @PurseBop Instagram story, which features their selections as well as small interviews. Take a look at our top six picks, and make sure to shop the entire collection.
