love those red pumps wyatt, i'm sure your sis will too. Great finds impossible!!

boo, I generally say that vintage is a little more selective and is more expensive than a thrift store. plus vintage is usually at least 15-20 years old. A thrift store is usually just cheap second hand clothing.

I think Vintage stores are simply like normal retail stores but they sell older clothes. Some of the clothes have also been reworked, and the prices are obviously so much more higher. Thrifts are basically second hand or charity stores, but you can find such good stuff in them-I see them as a way of finding the retro clothes before vintage sourcers do, after all, so many of them simply visit flea markets to get their stock.You have to sort through a lot of stuff you would never even look at before you find one special item. I like finding stuff in thrifts because you have that whole rush of finding something on your own-in a vintage store it's all been found before-they're just selling it to you at maximum profit.

oh, and obviously, everything in a vintage store has been dry cleaned before it's put on the rack.

I just bought a St. Johns Bay handbag in a beige today for .63 total. I would compare the leather to coach its soft, well made and you can't beat the price. I do own coach bags so I can compare the two and I can see or feel no difference.

Just in the last week: Navy Chloe dress with silver ribbon and beaded sleeves. Very slim 30s bias cut. Eight bucks at a Nashville Goodwill. Sad to say- I had to take a pass.

vintage chanel coat?
I bought at the Salvation Army today- a black tweed coat. 3/4 length with this fabulous lining. Check it out- the lining appears to be silk and the patern all over the silk is chanel logos as well as perfume bottles, chanel style purses, and slingback shoes. The pattern alternate in sort of an LV logo pattern sort of way. It's label has been torn out and all the buttons are missing. It appears to be well made. I wonder how to find out if this is a real Chanel coat. Did they make fake ones? If anyone has any thoughts please help. Thanks. p.s. the coat was $10.50.
