  1. 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!
    Check out the goods:
