I haven't been on the forum for a while so I don't know if someone else has already posted this. But for the past year, an auction house in Texas has been auctioning off the contents of several storage units worth of very high end designer clothing, bags and shoes. This stuff all belonged to a woman who embezzled $34 million from her employer (Sue Sachdeva, Google it). They're selling off the stuff to pay back her employer. I've been following the posts for the past eight months.

They are posting new items every ten days or so, so check back periodically.

This is a seriously amazing collection of items from about five to eight years ago. Listings have included Chanel, Nancy Gonzalez, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Dior, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Gucci, St John, Lela Rose, Escada, Tory Burch, Jimmy Choo, Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Badgley Mischka, Marchesa, and omg the list goes on and on and on!!!

Wow, can't believe how she could have stolen soooo much money without the company auditors figuring it out. What a bunch of pathetic fools. Just feel sorry for the employees.

And the sizes for her items are all over the place (though looks like a lot of 12s & 14s). Actually, kinda supports the "she's sick" argument.

This is sad, but also so outrageous.

It makes me so angry that this woman was so "sick," with alcoholism & shop-aholism, yet both of those very treatable diseases are used as excuses for her behavior. Instead of choosing to steal millions and millions of dollars, she could easily have sought out help.

Now tons of Koss employees are out of money, everyone is suing each other, and her children are sent to live with relatives.

And her stuff isn't even that great! I was expecting lots of Hermes, and expensive shoes!!!!

I wish everyone could have seen the stuff that has been posted in the past. Each batch is different from the next. A few months ago they listed several quilted Chanel bags. She had a penchant for shoes and OMG one lot included three pairs of YSL Tributes!!! I bid but lost.

Keep checking! Just when you think they've sold it all, they'll post another amazing batch!

Here are some of the listings that have ended:

I remember seeing another thread on this a while back (maybe in the Louboutin subforum?), but I'm so glad this woman wasn't my size.

No guaranty of authenticity in the fine print. What if you bid and end up with a lot if fakes?
