I did find that CDG shirt that one time, but my favorite thrift finds have not been designer at all. In fact, they're usually the no-name, often no-tag items that are cool and interesting and not what you can purchase in the stores these days.

Well, I'm not sure if this is supposed to be about designer finds from thrift markets only, but I'll post this anyway...

I don't usually find anything really interesting from thrift stores, but once I found these absolutely beautiful black, heeled lace-up shoes, they were kind of early 20th century inspired. I should repair the heels and then I could wear them.

I've also found two US Vogues from 1984, they looked like they were fresh from the newsstand.

I have found soo many wonderful things at my regular thrift store. I generally go about once a week. The best is the Anthropologie in my town sends the items that I think they damage out because of holes, etc, and since the thrift store is in an area of town where no one recognizes what these items are, I scoop in and get it all Most items are priced at less than 4 dollars, and most of it either I see nothing wrong with it or the holes, etc are very easily fixed. It's my best secret, and I tell no one where the store is

My fav thrift store finds were both Dior and both under $1...a fabulous pair of lady's gloves, never worn, from the "new look" era, and a blue/white striped silk tie from the 80's. Can't beat that.
