Why Handbags Are Cheaper Than Ever Now

On sale: If you've been had your eye on a designer handbag, now's probably a great time to finally take the plunge. Why? Department stores are seriously marking down handbags due to poor sales. Quartz explains: "Analysts at Credit Suisse said handbag inventories going into the holiday season were in line with expected sales growth, which should have limited the need for steep product markdowns," the website reported. However, now it's clear that stores did not sell as many bags as expected. "Premium- and mid-level department stores—along with several luxury brands—have ramped up their discount offerings in an attempt to lure consumers to buy leftover bags," Quartz says. Coach, for instance, is the making the most price cuts: It saw a 6.1% increase in markdowns compared to 2014. Click here to shop Coach bags on sale! [Quartz
