My friend once bought a pair of Marc Jacobs shorts at Goodwill for $2 and sold them on ebay for over $100.


But I would keep those shoes.

My best find ever was in San Francisco. I found an ivory pair of Jimmy Choo bridal shoes (never worn) for $75 at my fave re-sale store.

They look similar to this...

actually that thread is for products that are cheap, amazing things everyone can buy, not vintage finds that are exclusive.

wow, what great shoes! i once found marc jacobs moccasins (the white ones) in a thrift shop in paris, they were only 30 euros, i think, but unfortunately they don't fit anymore (too small). i love to keep them in my collection, though.

From my experience in thrifting and from others that when you thrift do smell the clothes and if they have a pungent/strong smell (stinky) chances are that smell isn't going to come out when you clean the piece. I hate that because I have found some nice things (dior) and had to put it back because the smell was hideous. So keep that in mind when you are shopping.

In the last month I have purchased 2 huge coach tote bags for 1.00 each. They look like the one on ebay #6738935842 one is black just like the picture and the other one is light blue and black. I didn't get the changing pads but thats okay because I will be using them as purses not diaper bags.

i bought my sister these



since well they would actually fit her and they reminded me of the latest ysl shoes.
