Is A Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag As Good An Investment As A Chanel Classic Double Flap Bag?
Many factors are considered when determining the resale value of a luxury handbag such as a Chanel 2.55 reissue flap bag. If the bag can be resold for more than the owner originally paid many consider this evidence that the bag was a good “investment.”
However, we do not recommend buying luxury handbags as “investments” per se. It is better to buy what you love to use and enjoy. Click here for Dear PurseBop’s response to this common question and the factors considered in valuing a bag on the resale market.

What Is Your Opinion of the Tri-colored Mini Kelly and Does It Have A Higher Resale Value?
The Hermès tri-colored bags have made quite an impression on Kelly loving afficionados. We have seen several versions of the tri-colored Kelly. Our beloved PurseBop was gifted a Kelly 25 tri-color from Mr. PB for their anniversary this past summer. This was in the fan favorite Chai, Lime, and Mauve Sylvester. We are still drooling over this winning combination.
We have also seen a Bleu Brume, Vert Jade and Gold; Nata, Juane Poussin and Sesame; Bleu Saphir, Bleu France and Noir; and Nata, Gris Meyer and Chai.

What Luxury Brands Are Likely To Increase Their Prices in 2023?
Based on historical evidence, the effects of the global Pandemic, supply chain issues, increased demand and decreased inventory at most, if not all, retail establishments, price increases are a valid concern. We were all surprised by the number of increases and the amounts which occurred during the heart of the Pandemic. Whether more will come is the biggest mystery of all. However, read Dear PurseBop’s response to this valid question so you will be prepared before the next price increase hits at your favorite luxury house.
Will Accepting a Hermès Non-Quota Bag Affect The Timing of When I Get Offered a Quota Bag?
Accepting a non-quota bag such as a Picotin, a Herbag, a mini Lindy, or an Evelyne in the past had no bearing on when you were offered a quota bag from your SA. It seems that this rule has changed in the U.S. and in Paris as well. It is best to check with your SA in your home boutique to verify this information before proceeding with accepting a non-quota bag. Click here to get the information we have gathered on this issue.
