So I went to a pawn shop (ghetto, I know), on the hunt for a new digital camera. A friend of mine had gotten an awesome camera for a ridiculously good price, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I was a little sketched out by the place, but good prices awaited me - I took the plunge and went in.
As I warily wandered around, my eyes suddenly zoomed to a jewelry display case where, safely contained, sat a Pochette Twin GM!
Heart pounding, I asked to see it - not a stunning LV, but very cute, and still in immaculate condition (the magnetic snap still has the blue protective plastic for god's sake!) - and then asked for the price. The salesman's first try was $260, I countered with $195 - we finally haggled it to $221.75 (tax included)!
I'd like to say that I had unfair assumptions about pawn shops, and if they're willing to sell me nearly brand new LV's for half-retail, then they have certainly made me a customer for life!

Nice deal :biggrin: I've never really been to those consignment places, but seems like it might be worth taking a look at.

Thanks guys!
I couldn't debut it today, as it was pouring down rain, but tomorrow!
I think I'll post some pix of it later with my whole bag family :biggrin:

That's so funny, I was just telling my girlfriend that I'd never been to a pawn shop before and I wanted to go -- maybe I'll score somebody's hawked engagement ring!
