Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? I had a date night with Mr. SP and a family night out, and it was glorious! I honestly don’t remember the last time that happened! Every weekend should be Mother’s Day. #amIright?!
We’ve got a fun week ahead on the blog, plus a BIG announcement just around the corner #monday, so I’m happy you’re here!
Today I’m sharing an unexpected source for finding luxury handbags, plus tips for buying them for less!

I love handbags, but pretty much every bag in my closet is under $100. In fact, the only luxury handbag I have was inherited from my grandmother. It’s not that I don’t love and appreciate designer handbags, I just have a hard time justifying the price tag.
I started carrying my grandmother’s Louis Vuitton last year for sentimental purposes, and I loved the vintage patina it added to outfits. Over time, I discovered it paired beautifully with almost every outfit, and I was rarely swapping to another bag. Plus, it kicked my outfits up a notch in the style department.
I started thinking about adding a new style, but still didn’t want to pay a small fortune for one! The answer was eBay Authenticated Handbags! Yes ma’am, I found this authentic Louis Vuitton crossbody on eBay, and for a fraction of the cost!
I love the freedom of a hands-free crossbody, and have always adored the Louis Vuitton ‘Sologne’ style. It’s roomie enough for a full day’s essentials, but not bulky…perfect for running around town, and especially traveling.
eBay is a great source for new bags, but I especially love it for finding discontinued styles like this one. Plus, I much prefer a Louis Vuitton with a weathered, vintage look, as opposed to shiny and brand-new. I love that this new-to-me bag already looks like I’ve owned it for years!
Tips for Shopping Luxury Handbags on eBay
eBay Authenticate is a new program designed with buyer’s confidence in mind, and bags are guaranteed by a team of industry experts to be completely authentic. So not only can you find amazing bags at great discounted prices, but eBay guarantees your bag is authentic.
It’s incredibly easy to search, discover, and purchase handbags that are authenticity verified on eBay:
- Use the filters to select the brand and/or the price range that fits your needs
- Select the ‘Authentically Verified’ filter
- Shop with confidence knowing those bags are verified authentic, and come with an eBay money back guarantee!
All the verified listings also come with an extremely detailed description and accurate photos of the bag. The listing for my bag was very upfront with every little scratch and worn spot…which was actually what I was looking for! But also means, I knew exactly what I was getting.
The fact that my purchase had an independent industry expert verifying it’s authenticity gave me the confidence to ‘Buy It Now,’ and I’m so happy with my new vintage treasure! Have you purchased a designer bag on eBay? Would you consider it now??
