A great budget tip for those who don't feel like spending a fortune on bags (but still want the crème de la crème) is to buy secondhand. At online marketplaces like Finn.no (Norwegian) and Lauritz.com (Scandinavian) it is possible to come across great deal on secondhand authentic designer bags. Some are even brand new or very little used. Of course, one should be aware of fakes, but with some bag knowledge and common sense (if the price it's too good to be true, it probably is) these are not too difficult to reveal.
Recently, I bought this lovely Mulberry Jaquetta bag. The seller, a lawyer who seemed to be even more crazy for bags than I am, sold the bag because she never used it. And because she had lost the receipt, I got it for a ridiculously low price. As it is truly authentic and in superb condition, I don't complain:)
