Ah, I know this is getting old, but it is too good of a thread to let die.
Recent finds... (nothing designer unfortunately)
-Brown satin dress. Hand sewn, a-line skirt, strappy top. 30 cents, my friend bought it but she is far bigger than me.
-Vintage tan, brown and orangey blouse.
-Brooches- usually about 50 cents.
-Many strands of pearls and love beads.
-Red suede skirt.
-G.

I'm not usually a fan of Gucci, but this scarf is really sweet!

And once my friend's mother gave me a Jean Patou Couture skirt + jacket walking suit for freeee because i was the only one she knew who could fit into it. I love it, the quality is amazing! I really don't know which decade it's from though. Recently found out that Lagerfeld worked for this couture house in the beginning of his carrier.
That flea market sounds amazing.
