Vintage Chanel Gold Bar clutch


I’ve always maintained that certain bags are a better investment than stocks. Take this CHANEL vintage gold bar clutch for an example. I’m sure at full retail it was no more than $2,500 (and that is a generous estimate).  And now, used, it’s $4,180.  Not all bags enjoy this kind of return but certain ones (especially limited edition items) from the best brands will always be worthy of investment!  CHANEL’s gold bar clutch not only resembles a gold bullion bar, it is the size of one (not the weight nor price thankfully– a kilogram of pure 99.99% gold cost roughly $33,000, now that’s another commodity worthy of investing in).  I don’t know, I’m not that into this look and really at that price you’ve maxed out on this investment.  And if there is one thing I learned from my finance classes at USC (yup, I was a nerdy International Finance major) is buy low, sell high.  Which seems these people have.
