There’s an episode of Gilmore Girls where Logan gives Rory a Birkin bag. Her grandmother Emily is thrilled by the gift and she tells Rory the purse “is meant to be used. And seen.”
That’s because designer bags are a status symbol. They make people “ooh” and “aah” and they come with fancy dustbags, which is crazy if you think about it because what kind of bag needs its own bag?
The wait lists, black markets, and high prices can make a stylish purse feel out of reach. Luckily, VarageSale is a gold mine for great designer bags at a discount. Here are 10 of the best deals selling across Canada right now.
