theclutch.netClutch is a small boutique, but don’t let its size fool you. This shop is packed full of great clothing, accessories, and of course, handbags at great prices.The best place to find discounted designer bags is in their designer resale room in the back. While these are used items, Clutch is careful to sell only the best quality from the best designers. The used bags in the designer room look brand new – they just don’t have the brand new price.

www.shopmintjulep.comMint Julep, which just opened a second Harvard Square store due to the popularity its found in Brookline, features all the same great designers you’ll find at an upscale department store. But instead of dealing with a crowded department store and harried salespeople who know nothing about the designers, you get a great boutique setting and salespeople who love and know designer handbags. While you won’t find the steep discounts you’ll get at some stores, you will find the prices are better than department stores at Mint Julep.

www.salmagundiboston.comSALMAGUNDI is a true Jamaica Plain gem. While it’s easy to walk into this shop and be overwhelmed by the more than 9,000 designer hats on display, look a little closer. You’ll find that they also carry a wide array of accessories like scarves, belts, and yes, plenty of designer handbags. And if you’re in the market for a hat to match your handbag, you couldn’t have landed in a better place. SALMAGUNDI is as well known for its utterly reasonable prices as they are to their almost old school passion for customer service.

flatofthehill.blogspot.comFlat of the Hill prides themselves on being the place to go to get that perfect gift. What gift is better than a designer handbag? This Beacon Hill shop has tons of great deals to begin with, but if you like their Facebook page or join their mailing list, they often send out notices or coupons for their legendary handbag sales, which knocks the prices down even further. Also find beautiful jewelry, adorable knick knacks for the home and bath and beauty products. Flat of the Hill will even gift wrap your handbag–that’s if you can convince yourself to part with it.
