These are dedicated professionals offering high quality handbags in many styles. A person at Tiffany's, in Las Vegas, asked my wife to give her detailed directions on how to get here based on the Suarez bag she was carrying!

Suarez is my first stop to my pocketbooks and wallets. They have a great selection, fair prices, good service and quality and good location. They mail promply and their sales are terrific. Shoes and scarves too.

Best handbags in New York

The earlier post that mentioned bad service must have been there on an off day or week. I've been going to Suarez Handbags for close to 20 years (as have a couple of my friends) and have always found the service top-notch. Greeted promptly and very helpful without being pushy in the least. More importantly, it's one of the few places in NYC where you can go and be assured that every dollar you spend is on top quality. No games or rip offs. The buyers for Suarez have fantastic taste and you'll never regret a purchase. A true-one-stop shop for the best quality and price.

Fabulous Handbags Great Prices

What's your bag? Mine is Suarez...for purses. I am the Imelda Marcos of pocketbooks, a real maven. Ramona Suarez has gorgeous Italian purses in a rainbow of colors and styles. Her prices are great! Every time I visit New York I bag a Suarez purse or two. Actually, for what you'd normally pay for one well-made, high quality bag, you can get two at Suarez. The latch on one of mine broke and all it took was a quick phone call. No questions asked, Ramona arranged to fix it. I love this store! And no, I am not a relative!

I,ve been shopping at Suarez for over 20 years; I find dealing with Ramona, her Dad and the rest of the family a pure pleasure. Honesty and fair prices are a welcome change for an upscale boutique.

CURB SERVICE!

I have been a Suarez customer for many years with great satisfaction. Recently I arrived by car at the store in a pouring rain to drop off an alligator bag which needed a handle repair. The doorman said, "if you stop or park here you'll probably get a ticket. Wait in the car." Within moments Ms. Suarez personally came out to the car, took my bag and promised to call me when it was ready. Mission accomplished I drove off wondering where else in New York City this could have taken place. Thank you Suarez for all the beautiful, stylish handbags at excellent prices and years of friendly, personal service.

The entire Suarez family, including Matt and Ramona, have helped me find fabulous alligator, lizard, python, shearling or leather bags and accessories for many years. They are very knowledgeable and have impeccable taste. Bags are very durable; sales are amazing; and, family members love to get the bags as gifts. My husband enjoys talking to the senior Mr. Suarez or Matt while I shop.
