  • No, I would not go back!

Can't believe this place has a perfect score, especially as negative reviews elsewhere mirror my experience. First, I will give this store credit for having beautiful things. Second: I expressed interest in a bag. Asked for a discount since it was a little bit dirty. Was told they could take $25 off, and when I said I need to think about it but will probably be back in an hour, the owner, BRIAN, said sure, but they won't hold it. I went back in an hour, took the bag, and suddenly, when he was writing up the bill, the new price was $20 more. I went with it, thinking my own memory deceived me. I left. Started feeling as if I was duped. I calmly called the store to let them know how I felt. BRIAN swore that was not the case. He calls me right back, asking me to come back to the store to "look at the price tag." I said no--I know what I saw! Besides, they're handwritten and can be easily replicated in a second! He yelled at me then hung up. Minutes later, I get a text with a picture of the tag, which was NOT THE ORIGINAL PRICE TAG!!!!! I say that with 100% certainty. He called me SCREAMING and refusing to let me speak and on and on and on. He had the audacity to say he will have his attorney sue me if I dare write a negative review of his dishonest store and disgusting behavior.

I've been looking forever for Vintage Chanel

I've been looking forever for a decent vintage Chanel. This is the place I swear. The bags are not cheap, but they are less than retail, however, they are in PERFECT CONDITION. Really. They do not take consignments, and only deal with a dealer in Paris so everything is PERFECT as in like new condition. An incredible selection. You might find cheaper elsewhere, but you will never see the quality you see here. They guarantee authenticity of the bags and my friends also bought bags as they couldn't resist. They are beautiful. We can't wait to go to brunch and show them off.

Truly a great store in New York and run by the nicest guys in New York! I love this store and stop in every time I am in New York.

Just Left a very unique boutique in New York City... Great Things Await It

i'm writing this on a plane right now. On my way to a buying trip in Shanghai and I'm going to recommend to the owners that they come to NY and take a look at how spectacularly merchandise should be presented and curated. This store is like a mini museum of treasure, presented exquisitely so as if you feel you are on a treasure hunt. Sure they have great Vintage Chanel, Incredible Japanese Designer Vintage, Hermes Watches, but then there are the hidden gems and surprises lurking about on the shelfs and the racks. I can't wait to get back to New York to pitch a story on these two wonderful gentlement and their unique vision to the London Sunday Times. Bravo.

Chanel Vintage is the best here. I saw in Japanese Elle Magazine. A famous Japanese editor is her favorite. We love this store. Many things here. From Hermes watch to Chanel to YSL handbags and Valentino. We love all the NY design as well. Very nice store. Lovely place.

the best vintage chanel handbags anywhere

This store has the best vintage chanel handbags I've ever seen. Anywhere. They only get mint condition or unused vintage chanel bags from a dealer. I got one that is amazing red with gold hardware. Everyone asks me where I got it. I am so thrilled to walk around with this bag. Also, the clothes and the jewelry. Amazing. It is a very unique store. Very well curated. I love coming here whenever I am in New York. It is like no other store I've been to. Simply Divine!

Paris in NY!

It's like being in the Marais in Paris! Very Tres Chic Boutique. Great selection of all types of jewelry, new clothing, vintage designer clothing. They even tend to favor french labels in jewelry and vintage. The Chanel handbags are exquisite -- I've never seen better even in Paris. Love this store. It's really great I could spend hours in there. Great soundtrack too!

Two Words in my fashion dictionary that I love: Vintage #chanel. Incredible, Amazing are the other two words that come to mind when seeing the vintage jewelry collection, the designer vintage from Paris and all the CHANEL. Amazing rare Chanel jewelry and Handbags. For any Chanelophile a Must Stop in NYC #vintage #chanel. Tweet it! :) and best of luck finding that piece. They get stuff in all the time. Great store with cool downtown vibe.

A little bit of Paris in NYC

5 star. The only boutique in NY that feels like it belongs in the Marais. Authentic and beautiful condition Vintage Chanel bags and Jewelry, Incredible rare Hermes watches, Japanese Vintage carefully edited all pristine condition as well. I love Paris, but even in Paris you hardly find a store like this and the exchange rate is now horrible so it's terribly expensive. They really know what they are doing here. You read about this store in most European Magazines and European Editors love this store.
