if you're a thrift shopper

what's your best find ever... could be clothes, handbags, furniture, kitchen ware, books.... anything. What makes it such a good find for you?

Do you go thrift shopping often? Do you ever find yourself buying stuff you maybe would not buy just because it's only a few dollars? Like I knew someone who would come out several times a week with LOADS of stuff, like 8 different handbags, 10 pairs of boots/shoes... just cheap ones for a few bucks, but it was getting into Imelda Marcos territory!

i love Ralph Lauren Clothing, over the years i bought alot of nice things from Thrifting but my prize collections are  my Designer Scarves and my paintings that i am having appraised soon. I know a few i have are authentic Norman Rockwell ( 1921) , and others that need to be looked at. So i would say the artwork is my favorites all 10 bought for about 2 or 3 dollars all together

Although i do love designer clothes too but it is only what catches my eye i buy no matter what the labels . I can make a woman look stunning in cheaper priced clothing, it is what i do and have for many years. It is who i am

I haven't been thrift shopping in a couple years.  I used to go monthly when I was at the hight of it.  I've gotten some great finds there for pants for myself.  I've found a couple items for the kitchen, one being a plant pot that I really love.

A TOD'S bag, a FENDI MAKEUP BAG AND KATE SPADE BAG. All in excellent condition. I was dropping some items off at a consignment shop(they only sale high end items) and scored those. I have found all kinds of goodies, some with tags, at the place I consign.

I am a thrift shopper but I really can't pinpoint my best find EVER. I LOVE finding gently used high end stuff for a couple dollars.

I go thrifting all the time, but I don't think I've ever found anything designer (I'm not looking for that anyway)  I like unique things so best find this awesome leather bag with great hardware for 50 cents.
