Buying a handbag is both an enjoyable journey and the worst nightmare. If you are a shopaholic, you will eagerly run into dozens of department stores looking for the perfect handbag…but, as shopping for handbags in New York offers thousands of choices, you might as well get confused. Here are top 5 department stores in New York where you can buy brand name designer handbags. The best things are the sales. Read on.
1. Century 21 Department Store
This amazing department store’s sales sky rocketed after Sex and the City series. All women who enjoyed watching the series (and, sincerely, who doesn’t?) and all true shopaholics know the value of this store. Indeed, women who have the most different styles, taste, belong to different age groups and are willing to pay more or less money for the adorned part of women clothing – its majesty, the Handbag, can find what they want at the Century 21 Department Store’s handbag department. You haven’t heard the best of it yet: season sales offer up to 70 % discount! Visit one of their stores in Queens, Upper West Side, Brooklyn or Lower Manhattan.
2. Henri Bendel
This iconic store offers semi-annual and annual sales. This is a true handbag shopping paradise. You can find mini bags, clutch, crossbody, backpacks, shoulder, satchel bags…simply put, they have whatever you like. The dominant color this season is blue and at Henri Bendel, they have lots of blue…and all other colors, of course.
3. Barneys New York
This is reserved for the hard-to-find brands. If you wish to buy a Saint Laurent, Fendi, Givenchy or a Stella McCartney handbag, welcome to Barneys! We think talking about prices would be meaningless here. However, Barneys often make their customers happy with sales and special offers.
You can currently save up to 75 % on selected items, including handbags at Bloomingdale’s. The offer includes always fashionable Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Marck Jacobs and numerous other brands of handbags. You can pick between small, large, elegant, street style handbags in all colors you can imagine. This season’s must have are the Michael Kors gleaming material bags. The good news is they are currently discounted at Bloomingdale’s. Hurry up before they’re sold out! Don’t forget to visit the unique Bloomingdale’s SoHo store in Broadway. It is relatively new (in comparison to the original Bloomingdale’s dating back to 1800s), but still radiates the well-known ambiance of this famous New York department store.
5. Last, but definitely not the least – Cartier
Located in the Fifth Avenue, this store tailored for distinctive buyers offers 4 different collections of handbags: C de Certier, Happy Birthday, Must-C and Panthere de Cartier. A limited number of models, materials, peculiar colors and the price says enough. However, owning a bag by Cartier is a truly different experience, shopping in a Cartier handbag store as well. Additionally, they offer bags for him – special collection designed for men. There are two categories – Must de Cartier and Louis Cartier. Men can find a stylish, elegant and modern bag convenient for different occasions.
These were the top 5 department stores in New York where you can buy handbags for every occasion, at different prices. There are many more to discover, but we recommend starting your journey from the listed five. Enjoy your bags!
