If you are on the lookout for a new handbag, then get yourself to Sha Shaari – a Bangsar boutique offering true fashion bargains. One of Kuala Lumpur’s best-kept secrets, this store stocks a beautifully collection of ‘pre-loved’ designer handbags that do not cost the earth. You've got to work for your bargains though, as the store is ‘hidden’ in an upper storey shop lot along Jalan Telawi Tiga.
The idea behind Sha Shaari is to provide good value vintage and they have a fine finger on the pulse of current trends, so the handbags and clutches available are usually pretty hip, practically guaranteeing that you will walk out with something full of character.
Head here if you love a label hanging off your arm - from YSL to Chanel – Sha Shaari offers an amazing variety of second-hand items in mint condition, always at a snip of the original price. Spacious and stylish, a kaleidoscope of colours contributes to making this wonderland for designer bag lovers look like a trendy, spunky showroom. Walls are cheery pink, shelves are bright red and white, floors are polished blond wood and cupboards are emerald green.
What really makes shopping here such a relaxing experience is the fact that the great staff will help you locate the gem you are looking for, always with a smile on their faces. Prices start from RM300 and the current stock includes brands like Balenciaga, Gucci, Miu Miu, Chanel, Marc by Marc Jacobs and more.
What You Will Find
The shop is quickly becoming the destination of choice for those seeking out beautiful but reasonably-priced designer pieces. Sha Shaari first started out as an online platform for owner, Shakila, to sell her used designer handbags, scarves and accessories. When her own pre-loved collection got snapped up super fast, she decided to branch out and put buyers in touch with other sellers. In time, this networking turned into a business that proved profitable, so Shakila opened up the Bangsar boutique in 2011.
What we really love about this store is that you can pay for your chosen handbag using an instalment plan: i.e. just pay 50% of the total price when you first select your bag as a booking fee – the balance can be paid later and once you have completed payments, you get to take it home. It’s the perfect solution for fashionistas on a budget!
