    Question Chanel XL Tote - Should I Get It?

    Ok ladies (and guys), I need your advice. I found an XL Lambskin Tote in black on eBay, starting bid $605. Well, no one bought it, so I e-mailed the seller, and they said this is the lowest price, however, they would sell it to me.

    The seller is crossroad881, a trusted eBay power seller. The bag isn't in the best condition, but still has a TON of life left in it. I have always loved this bag, but I don't want to get the bag just because it's "cheap." The bag has been well used, but I think it's still in good shape.

    I want all opinions, because I'm on the fence about it. I really love the bag itself, and I'd love one in better condition, but they're about $400 more.

    Here are pictures from the auction.

    Hmmm.... can you find a leather doctor close by? See what they say first. It needs serious work and love on it.
    I understand you want a Chanel and it's a good price for a Chanel bag. But... it's not in good shape. Do you want to start out with a bag that is beaten up like this or save for one that you can break in yourself?

    Thanks for the advice Maevey!

    I always ask my bf his opinion about any bag I'm looking, and he thinks I'll never use this bag. Since it's a tote, and big, and I usually don't have enough stuff to put in my little bags, this one won't get filled up.

    I really wish this was in better shape... but the price is so low, and other bags like this in better condition are like $1000+, which I don't want to spend.

    Are there any more opinions out there?

    I wouldn't go for it. I would save up and get a bag in better condition. I know it's tempting because of the low price, but I agree with Maevey.

    Sorry but I agree with the others who think it's not worth it.

    I totally understand about wanting a certain bag and you find it cheap but in poor condition. I've been there too. I would never turn down a great bag in good used condition if I can afford it....


    But I think you should pass on this one for something else.

    I wouldn't go for it either, it's not in its best shape. Just save up, eventually, something better will come around.
