November is an odd month for shopping. We have so much of it to do, and yet we restrain ourselves from buying just about anything for the first three weeks of the month. Then, when Black Friday week finally touches down, we overstuff our carts with bottomless deals.
What many people don’t realize, though, is that deals are starting earlier and earlier—in order to be competitive, brands are quietly offering discounts weeks ahead of Thanksgiving. And the truth is, the markdowns can be just as good.
We’ve rounded up the most coveted designer bags that are on sale even before the main Black Friday event so that you can shop without ever having to read “Sorry, you missed out on this item” again. And we’ve also included all of the Black Friday handbag deals we know about so far. Scroll on below to see the best handbag deals you can shop on sale now, plus ones to come back to later.
