Keep an eye out in those resale shops, ladies, because you never know what you might find!

Recent addition I forgot to post about but had to share. $75 authentic Damier Ebene Westminster GM. I'm so in love with this bag...

...but i just sold it about 2 hours ago to fund my watercolor speedy, because I had to when I found a white one to be a sister for my brown 30 for less than $1K! I know, I'll never get another deal like the Westminster on a pristine bag... but i keep telling myself it was worth it for watercolor and I will just have to add this to my list to keep an eye out for on the preloved market when I'm off ban island, right?

:crybaby: :cloud9: :drinkup: have you ever gotten a killer deal on something then had to choose whether it was worth giving up or not to score something even better? I know you all feel my pain. The struggle is real! But I've managed to find at least a half dozen LV and Chanel pieces for less than $150 at resale shops. I love seeing threads where people score killer deals like that, so if you all have any, please do share!

Meanwhile here's the lovely Westminster, and a couple gratuitous shots of the Aquarelle I found for under $1K (she has her own thread) which made me part with the Westminster GM after only getting to carry her for a week! I might add that I gave the new owner of the Westminster a fantastic price and it was her first LV and she was almost in tears she was so excited, so that felt good :loveeyes:

:lolots: I should have been a personal shopper. Then I could live vicariously through the fabulously wealthy and keep my money all for traveling. Maybe in my next life. :girlsigh:

That amazing deal! [emoji33][emoji33][emoji33]

I never believe just because a bag that retail for $1000 and it on secondary market for dirt cheap, it good to be true. Although the saying can be true though.

I remember a long time ago watching on MTV show documentary of a girl who has major shopping problems. It show a scene of her selling her clothing and LV bags. She was so upset of the amount she got back for her LV bags. I think the thrift store gave her 10 or no more than 100 bucks for each LV bags. LOL

I've been a thrifter for years and that is an amazing deal. Did they think it was fake when they priced it? I found a Trocadero 27 for $75.00 once but that was it. I thought my $600.00 Chanel was a bargain. I can't imagine one for less than $150.00. I want to live near you.
