Designer Handbags On My Christmas Wishlist

Christmas is right around the corner. We have two official shopping days left!–unless you plan on frantically shopping on Christmas Eve, while the rest of us are already sippin’ our spiked  eggnog in our PJ’s.

The perfect gift, that could be close to fool-proof, is one of our preowned designer handbags.


Chloé Handbag – Yellow Glazed

Karl Lagerfield and Stella McCartney are noteworthy recent designers of this brand, and they are just a few of the talented artists and designers that take part in the beauty of Chloé. This designer consignment purse is in a unique yellow, has a braided over the shoulder handle and is in perfect condition.




Fuchsia Marc by Marc Jacobs consignment handbagMarc by Marc Jacobs – Fuchsia

Johns Landing

An American designer this talented is a rarity. Marc Jacobs, born in New York, was ranked in 2010 as one of Time magazine’s most influential people in the world (read article here). The color of this bag sells itself. Beautiful for any season, and can be your statement piece when wearing anything black or grey.





1. Lifespan– if taken care of and repaired if damaged, these gently used designer bags will last a lifetime.

2. Style Lifespan– the label Marc Jacobs, Cholé, and Gucci, to name a few, will be forever recognizable. Even if the style becomes “out-of-fashion” within 5 years, the chance of it coming back and being a vintage gem are very likely.

3. Unexpected– a preowned designer handbag means the date and place of where the bag came from can vary from yesterday purchased at Nordstrom, to 10 years ago in Milan. The bags you find will most likely be a rare find, and be the unexpected gift the receiver would never have imagined or splurged on for herself!

More consigned designer handbags that we have at either our Johns Landing or Broadway location are of more noteworthy brands such as, C by Chloé, Coach, Burberry, Gucci, Givenchy, Mulberry, and Dolce & Gabbana. And our selection varies daily, so be sure to let us know if have a favorite designer handbag label and we’ll put you on our Wish List.

Author: Chris Gauger

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
