Just days after Hermes' Birkin and Kelly bags sold out in minutes on Gilt Groupe, Billion Dollar Babes is putting on its own vintage handbag sale -- this time, focusing on Chanel.
Today and tomorrow, BDB will have up for grabs what it boasts to be the biggest and best selection ever of vintage Chanel handbags -- a promise that, as we write this, may sound like spam, but given BDB's propensity for vintage Chanel accessories, we'd imagine it will be worth hopping online for a peek.
Given the Birkin's virtual shelf life of, oh, five minutes last week on Gilt Groupe, we're guessing the bags will go incredibly fast. All of this does also seem to indicate that, recession or no recession, there is always a hearty appetite for luxury handbags. The sale kicks off at 8AM PST (meaning 11AM ET) on billiondollarbabes.com.
