A good handbag never goes out of fashion.
That’s the ethos of a brand new Blackrock shop that specialises in hard-to-find high-end vintage and second-hand accessories.
The first dedicated authentic designer handbag shop in Cork, the shelves of Pursha are stuffed with covetable classics, such as the monogram Louis Vuitton cosmetics case, Neverfull and Speedy, the quilted Chanel Jumbo and the Chloe Hobo.
The business, owned by Caroline Hunt, has grown its reputation for finding top quality stock online since 2014 and is now expanding with its first dedicated retail space.
The Boom is back, you might snigger, but as far as fashion purchases go, designer handbags can be a savvy splurge. Once they’re kept in good condition, you can nab up to 70% on the retail value by selling later.
Some styles, such as the classic Chanel 2.55 can even sell for hundreds of Euro above their original price. Not bad for an investment you can wear in the meantime.
