Chanel handbags

There are plenty of vintage stores throughout Paris. I checked out a few of them. One proprietor, in the St Germain des Près area, who has two shops right next to each other is worth mentioning. For years, Catherine B has been scouring the world for vintage Hermes and Chanel.

In her shops, she has a great selection of handbags and accessories. There were lots of Kelly and Birkin bags displayed on the store shelves as well as other styles of Hermes. There are also lots of Chanel handbags of all sorts as well as jewelry.

Examples of pricing include a Kelly bag at $5,000, small Chanel cross-body bag was around $2,500. Simple signature Chanel chain necklaces at $2,000+.
