Just like how we always go to Tokyo for sashimi, always go back to the city of origin to get the best deal out of branded goods. Look for Chanel in Paris, Fendi in Italy and Kate Spade in New York City.

For off-season Kate Spade bags and wallets, it’s best to check out the premium outlets in the States. If you’re lucky, you can even find bags at up to 70% off!

For never-out-of-style classics, you can always fall on Kate Spade’s US site for seasonal sales. How much cheaper can we save on their sales? Let’s check out Kate Spade’s handbag price comparison on their international site VS price in Singapore.

YAY to sales! Apparently, sales item differs on both international and local web store, thus it’s to our advantage to get them at a much lower price by ordering from the US site. As Kate Spade US site does not ship to Singapore, you’ll need to get a friend who resides in US or a helpful hand to help you bring it back.

For those who are not travelling to the states anytime soon, you need to check out Airfrov, the latest shopping hack in Singapore.
