#Tuesdaythoughts don’t necessarily stray to shopping, however, today I wondered what designer handbag brands would pop into the price range of £1000 to £3000 and yes it’s true, you can get a Louis Vuitton or Hermes for this budget!
This is the first of my bag shopping guides with a budget (see end for the others) which takes in two different types of shop; those offering new bags and those which stock good quality preloved or secondhand designer bags.
The results below show a new and preloved bag for 5 different styles. You can now see at a quick glance if you would be tempted by a preloved bag. A total of 10 bags, 5 brand new, 5 preloved for clutch bags, tote bags, handbags, shoulder bags and those ideal for the weekend.
New: Tyler Ellis silver python clutch bag from Harvey Nichols at £2590
Preloved: Hermes Jige PM Swift clutch bag from Rewind at £2800
New: Proenza Schouler whipstitched leather shoulder bag from Harvey Nichols at £1850
Preloved: Chanel quilted shoulder bag from Rewind at £2950
New: Roksanda mini weekend tote bag from Selfridges at £1195
Preloved: Louis Vuitton Artsy from Designer Exchange at £1400
New: Fendi Runway small tote bag from Farfetch at £1530
Preloved: Louis Vuitton Capucines from Designer Exchange at £2600
New: Fendi Peekaboo Whipstitched bag from Net A Porter at £3000

There you have it, 10 bags under £3000. The big name designer brands make the budget if you are prepared to buy a preloved or secondhand bag. The stores offering preloved designer bags are upfront about the quality and all the bags here are from their best quality categories.
