    Does anyone know of any good thrift stores in the Liverpool/Wirral area in England? Im looking for some pretty bargains that everyone else won't have. I just hope that I am half as lucky as the rest of you at finding some good things. Thanks

    My best find in a while......a Vivienne Westwood dark brown wool scarf with the orb logo stitched on the end for £2! Then by some bizarre coincidence an hour later at a completely different place I found the correct dustbag for it 30p!

  8. That has to be the cutest shopping story I've heard in a long time, nice finds!
    I got my most face dress ever out of a charity shop, it cos me £3 and it's a gorgeous dark gold/black maxi with a split up the side, it fits perfect and nearly always wear it to work or special events ^_^

    I live in Santa Barbara. I have no idea what brand that sweater is! Who ever owned it before me, cut off the tag! Since it's Santa Barbara, I think it's safe to assume it's not a bad brand sweater. The average cost of a home here is one million dollars (I'm here for school)!

    :shock:

    It does look like it ... if so, you can be sure the cashier didn't give it to the original owner for free ;)
