They are just sitting in the closet. What should I do with them? I just purchased my first Michael Kors. I love it,but not sure if it was worth it.???? We shall see.
Handbags have always been one of my weakness. I've loved them ever since I was a child. My problem is that I don't like carrying the same one all the time and like to coordinate with shoes and outfit I'm wearing. Therefore,I tend to buy more conservatively priced in all different colors to match my shoes. Love the bright colors they have out now for spring/summer.
I would NEVER even entertain the thought of spending $1,000's for one. Hundreds is bad enough and I don't do that very often anymore. I do love a nice soft leather,but have plenty that are not real leather. However,I feel every fashionable woman should have at least one nice designer handbag to use on special occasions. That's another point that wasn't made here......Different occasions call for different types of bags.
You could probably sell your old ones, using Kijiji or Craigslist, or eBay. Leather bags in great condition will sell much better than cloth or synthetic bags.

My husband (as he was looking at LV bags with me) did remind me that our 14 year old is carrying my first Coach and it looks great. Those bags still look amazing and were really well made.
I've seen vintage leather Coach bags, and they really were made to last. They had great quality. Today's leather Coach bags tend to be in a more feminine or "fussy" style. More pleats, embossed designs, "saffiano" leather, etc., and lots of shiny hardware. I like the new designs, but I'm not sure how well the thin leather and skinny straps used today will hold up over time and with heavy use...
