Get your finances in order and head to the Heritage Luxury Accessories auction on eBay's Fashion Vault, where over the next six days, vintage handbags from the likes of Hermés, Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Marni, and Prada are available for the bidding. You could sponsor a child's college education with the highest priced bags (Hermés, exclusively), but you could also call a crushed velvet and lucite Gucci purse your own for a paltry $26. There's everything in between right now, like the Chanel caviar vintage tote for $270 or a Bottega Veneta woven leather cabat bag for $330. These prices are mere bids and will likely go up, but regardless, take a moment to dream with us here. [eBay]
