Heritage Auctions Lets You Bid on Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga and More—For Less

Heritage Auctions is responsible for the sale of the most expensive handbag ever created—a $203,150 diamond-encrusted Birkin. Thankfully, though, the tons of other Hermès goodies included in the auction house's spring luxury catalog will be going for far less cash. Sure, a studded Collier de Chien cuff or boxy Constance carryall are undeniable investment buys—but the pre-owned ones currently up for grabs on the site have starting bids that are far, far lower than their retail values.

Check out some of Heritage Auctions' most interesting lots, along with their beginning bids, in the slideshow below. If you're interested in a piece, simply place your bid at Ha.com/luxury before April 29, when the event ends. Or, you know, just drool longingly over that silver Constance bag.
