i looove thrift stores. i volunteer @ one so i get everything for a dollar & probably 1/5 of my wardrobe comes from there especially accessories. no one in my town knows designers, so i'm usually able to snatch up anything worth holding on to

Blue and white striped pants...
A pink plaid belt
TONS of gorgeous beads, jewelry, and odd'n'ends. (most of which I take apart to make new jewelry.)

I love thrift stores.

I was SOO excited last week when I saw all these scarves at the Goodwill!! Needless to say I bought them all, and for only $2.50! They are real!! The store workers don't even know how nice these are!

I found a Christian Dior scarf at my local thriftstore. I bought it, but I'm not sure it's real. How do you know?

Great finds by the way!

how about taking it to a Dior boutique and ask them? however, i have noticed that the staff when enquiried usually says the the items are fake, even if they are not...i am not sure whether it s a new company policy to discourage people from buying outside te official stores

I recently went to San Francisco and got a pair of Antik Denim for fifty bucks. Great condition and it doesn't have that "thrift store smell". ^.^
