Fabulous Finds -Holiday Miracle Edition

It was an amazing day of shopping at our favorite thrift store! I swear, if there is something I want and I am patient, it will eventually show up at the thrift store…I’ve been wanting one of these Sapiens bookshelves for a couple years now. They retail for $225 (plus $36 shipping) on Amazon. Today at the thrift store there it was, for $12. I was so excited I’m sure they all thought I was nuts 😉 We also scored a lovely hand-made 100% wool rug for the hall, something else we’ve been looking for, $10. In the ladies section I was thrilled to snap up 2 pairs of ‘7 for all Mankind’ jeans, a pair of Rock and Republic jeans (all $6 each), a Haute Hippe $300 silk blouse for $4.99, a pretty pink merino wool sweater from Bloomingdales ($3.99) and a big lovely silk Brooks Brothers scarf for $1.99. Woo hoo! What a great day. Holiday miracle shopping! I am one happy camper.

It’s time for FABULOUS FINDS! It’s been a Great Summer for Designer Thrift Store Finds so far…

I’ve been having a blast trolling for labels at the thrift store this Summer! Last week I scored a gorgeous Tadashi gown ($8.99), 2 silk Nanette Lepore tops ($4.99 each), a Diane Von Furstenberg cocktail dress ($8.99), and 2 pairs of Tori Burch flats ($6.99 each)! How do I pay for all my thrifting fun you ask? Well I sell many of my finds on Ebay to support my habit. I’ve added the links to the pictures below.

It’s time for another edition of Fabulous Finds! I’ve unearthed more delightful treasures from my favorite thrift store over the last couple of weeks. First off is this lovely pair of gold metallic heels in very good condition from Dolce and Gabbana! For $8.99! Yee haw, what a steal. Since I already possess a beautiful pair of gold metallic heels (Jimmy Choo! But that’s for another exciting episode 😉 I am selling this pair on ebay to help pay for my other treasures.

New Fabulous Finds! Manolo Blahnik, Celine & Dolce and Gabbana! And a New Source for Cheap Designer Goods…

I have some terrific new finds to tell you about! …and a New Source for Designer Goods…

d&gceline1

Here are two recent AWESOME finds at my favorite Goodwill: A pair of wool logo pants from Celine in perfect condition for $4.99, and a Dolce’ & Gabbana silver mesh one-shoulder top ($4.49). I love them both, but am selling the Celine pants on Ebay this week, it’s a great way to help me pay for my thrifting!  ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/121536231714?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 ) They are great pants just not quite my style. (I’m keeping the top! Can’t wait to wear it this Spring.)

…and as promised, I’m telling you about a New Source. Ok, it’s been around awhile, but it is new to this blog. Goodwill has a national auction website listing all sorts of goods from around the country. The catch is, there is a lot more competition for the good stuff, and you have to pay shipping and handling, but sometimes great things do slip through the cracks. Yes, you are taking a bit of a risk buying off the pictures alone, but if the listing was wrong in any way, you can return the item (minus shipping of course.) A couple weeks ago I scored big on a nice pair of classic black satin kitten heel Manolo Blahniks in excellent condition. The photos were not very good, and I’m guessing that is why not many people were bidding on them. I took a chance and got a great deal, only $14! I did have to add shipping and handling, so the total was $21, still WELL worth it.

Here is the address: http://shopgoodwill.com Happy shopping! And here are the great heels I snagged…blahnik
