    Default Where do you buy your handbags from?

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a Msc student and am doing a project with a talented British handbag designer. I want to find out why and where women buy handbags and what is important to them when they intend to buy a handbag. The business of the designer is still very small, that's why I want to help her to improve and grow her business.

    Where do you buy your handbags from? Department store, high-street, boutiques, flea market or online? And was is the advantage of this channel?

    Also, I am currently conducting an online survey about this particular topic, but I'm not sure whether it is allowed to post the link here.

    I purchase most of mine either online or at a department store. Online has its advantages because I may have something very specific in mind but I might not be able to find it where I live. Shopping at a department store is nice though too because they will have a large selection of styles to try on and look over. This is good when I don't have something specific in mind. I also like the no interest credit card at my favorite store.

    You can post a link to a survey as long as you're not advertising anything.

    Interesting. So would you rather buy a well-known brand rather than a high-quality bag made by a small (yet unknown) desigern?

    Could you please fill in this survey about handbag shopping :)
    It is anonymous and will take 5-10 min.

    Here is a working link: https://brightonbusiness.co1.qualtri...nVzMCceh0L8HHL

    Sometimes I will see something from a well-known designer and decide that I must have it. There are just times when a particular bag calls to you. I'm not afraid of lesser-known designers though. They can offer some very unique and beautiful pieces. In fact, I like to write blog posts about lesser-known designers just because I find their stories interesting.

    I think the best place to buy a good designer handbag, is from boutiques: you ca try the bag, you can feel material, you are confident that's genuine.

    I guess that's why it's difficult to sell handbags online, particularly when you've never heard about the brand. Have you ever bought a handbag online?
    Ps: If you don't mind, could you please fill in my survey about handbag shopping? :)

    My weak points are at airports, where I just don't think about the cost if I have another currency in my purse.

    I think it is difficult if the bags are unknown. You don't know what you're getting if you buy it online. But if I saw something in a store that was from an unknown designer, I wouldn't immediately dismiss it. If I'm able to see it and feel it and decide "hey, this is really nice", then I might buy it.

    I will have one designer bag that I love to use on a daily basis, but for things like nights out - and recently going to the airport - I would rather purchase a handbag I like, in a style I like but not necessarily from a designer brand. I have purchased a lot of bags from LYDC ( lydc.co.uk ) who are an online Handbag Company. My fear with taking designer bags abroad is if it is lost or stolen - I would rather take something that didn't cost as much and could be easily replaced - similar to a night out - which is another situation where I may be in the misfortune of having a bag stolen or lost. Where as on a day to day basis I would much rather invest in a designer bag - at the moment I have a Michael Kors, which I use every single day and take to work with me.

    Well I don't have any money being a student, so thrift stores. My hierarchy is generally:

    1.) Price
    2.) attractive patterns/design
    3.) size

    I buy from these places because they offer new and old/vintage items at an incredible price from all over the world, they are convenient, I can feel and examine them to make sure they are in good condition and real, also you can sometimes make a better deal.

    Smile Re: Where do you buy your handbags from?

    I buy bags from little boutiques, markets and online brands who have cool stories behind the making process. For online stores, I think its best if there are lots of different photos of different angles of the bags since you can't see it in person. At boutiques and markets I like to try it on different ways, test how it works and feel the quality of the material. I'm mostly concerned about how long the bag will last and where it comes from.
