Coach Factory Haul

30 May

I am a self-professed Coach bag-a-holic. I have been for years now. I blame my boyfriend since he’s the one who bought me my first Coach 5 years ago :) Imagine my excitement when I found out that a Coach Factory  FINALLY opened in Arizona!!!

For those who aren’t familiar, there is the full price Coach Store and then there is the Coach Factory. The Coach Factory sells out-of-season and unpopular items from the full price store at a highly discounted price. It’s basically a Coach fanatic’s wet dream. For years, the closest factory store was in Las Vegas. I literally squealed when I found out a Coach Factory opened about 2 hours north of me in Anthem, Arizona. I should probably be thankful that it’s 130 miles away because I could do some serious damage otherwise.

I was finally able to drag my boyfriend away from Diablo III for a weekend (omg.. like pulling teeth) and we took a little trip to Anthem. I totally lucked out because the Coach store was having a promotion where you got $50 off your purchase of $250!

There weren’t too many things that caught my eye. I’m really picky about my bags and the store was PACKED with people. Women to discounted Coach is like moths to a flame. And I don’t do well in large crowds lol. I get annoyed with people so easily. I scanned the store a few times, grabbed a few things and got the eff out of there!

Here is what I picked up:

Scarlet sunglasses in Tortoise
Originally $178 / Bought at Factory for $65

White Heart Keyfob
Originally $48 / Bought at Factory for $24

Coach Madison Dotted Op Art Large Sophia Satchel in Khaki
Originally $358 / Bought at Factory for $179

I actually got this same exact purse for Christmas in 2011 but in black LOL. I love it so much that I needed another color. I really wanted to get a leather bag while I was there, but they didn’t have many large ones. They had some cute medium sized leather bags but I don’t do medium. I carry my life with me everywhere I go, and that requires a rather large bag.

My total for everything (before tax) was $268. After the $50 promotion discount, my total (before tax) became $218! Not too shabby considering the retail value of my purchase was $584!

Thank you Coach Factory! I see many more visits together in our future.

    Love it! I just happened to see Coach sunglasses in TJ Maxx now too for $50…not sure what season they are from since I only “follow” the handbags. Also here is the official factory site…

    Nice haul! I love Coach. I got my latest sunglasses from TJ Maxx, but usually buy from the factory outlet. I am lucky, my state has 4!

      Geez, my TJ Maxx never carries Coach. Not even crappy wristlets lol. I always hear about people finding amazing stuff at their Ross or TJ Maxx but I never do haha.

        Hey! The first is $ 148. I think they’re cute. =PI couldn’t find the scoend pair on the Coach site, though, or on a few other sites. Maybe it’s something they no longer make or maybe it isn’t out yet. I’m not quite sure. Sorry. =[ But, I would assume that they would be around the same price. =]~Natasha, The Garrulous Lady

      Thanks! It’s an awesome bag.. I just hope the color isn’t too light. I dirty up my bags easily :/
