Lucky criticsdarling! The one or two I've been to sell absolute crap. And they are in rich neighborhoods too, so I've just stopped trying to find something valuable there.

^^ i feel like with thrift stores etc it can be very hit or miss... and you also probably have to check in somewhat regularly because the good stuff gets swiped quickly...

Yeah thats true, sometimes I find nothing, other times I come out with bundles of stuff!

My best find was a pair of Marc Jacobs jeans, they were under £4.00. I was very pleased!

My best thrift score is probably my Nina Ricci blouse that I got for 1.4 euros (about 1.8 dollars!) in a finnish consignment shop.. It was love at first sight and the only thing in there that wasn't garbage, quite literally :p It's rather delicate, has a peter pan collar and pretty shell buttons.. I love it - a lot!

I am loving Ethel Austins at the moment (UK only I think). So far this week I've bought a beige thick cotton short sleeved fitted shirt, a long sleeved semi-transparent white fitted shirt, two v neck thin knitted jumpers with very loose v neck and baggy to the elbow sleeves one in the most gorgeous grey and the other black, and a pair of beige corduroy boot cuts. The most expensive things were the jumpers at £10 each. Problem is, I pass the shop on my way to pick the baby up from nursery and just have to keep popping in.
