Wow! Who would let a Chanel bag slip by? Do you guys visit thrift stores on a daily basis and that's why you can score great finds? Share some tips!

Just recently got into thrift stores since you can find pieces that hardly anyone else have, rather than have a logo stamped across your shirt or pants...
there are some good ones along melrose ave and on la brea. i believe a store called "the way we wore" is also near jet rag. you should check it out. they have everything from 20's to the 90s. pricey though but beautiful..
then there are some local ones here and there...oc has good ones too.
i like goodwill a lot, heh, ive made great findings there.

jun3machina, awsome chanel! but you sure it's real? but it's a great price though!!

thanks guys for the nice comments..i wish i had more money with me that day..i saw some other stuff i liked but no money left

pinkpolo, i dont go thrifting very often actually..but the closes vaule village happens to be around rich folks..so they throw away pretty nice stuff sometimes
i found a 80s ports stripped one piece last september...during when strips were all the rage..and i found a dolce & gabbana vintage narrow jeans at salvation army

I have my favorite days to go personally, but i think it depends upon the store. go frequently and you'll find some days are better than others.....but a lil luck and a good eye helps too.

I've been finding a lot of good books at thrift stores lately. Usually it's just romance novels and thrillers, but in the past week I've hauled home a bunch of literatary fiction and such. Maybe all the students leaving for the summer are donating their books.

My local thrift stores make me shudder. All I see are the typical teen brands. You know what they are: AE, Abercrombie, Hollister. But I'm going on vacation to LA soon so hopefully I'll have more luck there.
