Found these yesterday at my local Value Village





Burberry Classic Trench coat in my size - $49 CDN






Burberry Navy Trench coat in my size as well - $12 CDN






Burberry Windbreaker in this mustard-ish green color - $8 CDN

I SERIOUSLY need to make a trip to Canada. Those Burberry clothing would be snatched up so quickly here in Los Angeles . Amazing finds

I mainly thrift bags, shoes and accessories. Most of the clothes I've thrifted are my mom's haha but I find the consignment stores in my area don't really gear their sizes as much towards tiny sizes like mine

Over half of my handbags are thrift items. I love the vintage quality and details i find that I can't get in big retails. Also, no one else will likely be carrying it and I always get asked where I got them

I found a vintage Lily Pulitzer dress while thrifting this weekend, but I left it at the store because it was too frilly for my style. It was in great shape and I almost bought it but deep down I knew I'd never wear it.

Any TFSers in Phoenix AZ, it's at the Goodwill on 7th St. and Union Hills.

Oh man! Wish I was in Phoenix! Sounds like a cool find.

I bought a really fabulous piece of vintage decoration at a tag sale! It's a black velvet bow with 2 ermine tails, and has what looks like a homemade pin on the back like its a brooch. It was in fabulous shape, and I also found a small, skinny mink scarf but I didn't get it

Was in the most amazing condition, usually fur at tag sales is just gross, dry and sheds this was perfect! Ah, I hate that I'm so cheap sometimes.

I used to like shopping tag sales but the other people are HORRIBLE particularly the resellers, who are the worst and the nastiest. Does anyone else go to them? I've found some really great stuff that I guess is too weird or ugly for the resellers at nice prices.

found a Christian Dior short sleeve button down for $18 in a thrift store in Austin. For "thrift store" standards, it might have been over priced, but since the shirt fit me perfectly, i couldn't let it go and bought it asap

I also found a vintage Lacoste polo (the tag said '78), but it was WAYYY too small and sort of ripped while I was trying it on and I didn't get it.
