You can’t just walk into Hermes and purchase a Birkin bag. We all saw Samantha try to do it in that famous episode of Sex and The City. You can, however, walk into The Vintage Contessa and buy one! If that’s a bit out of your price range, you can also find a wide selection of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Celine and other Hermes bags, just to name a few. This laid-back playground of luxury items also sells vintage Chanel costume jewelry, Hermes cuffs, belts, bracelets and much more! All of their pieces are authentic pre-owned or brand new which Donae Chramosta and her husband, Rob, purchase through their international travels. This dynamic couple has clients from all over the world seeking their goods, but we Houstonians are lucky enough to have them right here.
Rob Chramosta began rare-coin collecting over 25 years ago, which then led to a fine jewelry and luxury item business. Thanks to his wife, Donae’s, appreciation for fine handbags (which began when her father brought her home a Gucci bag when she was a teenager), their business further branched out to carry the finest luxury handbags. Over the last few years this has been the fastest growing sector.
Rob and Donae set a very comfortable atmosphere at their shop so you can view all the fabulous pieces while having fun at the same time! Visit their website for more information.
