Who doesn't love Gucci, Chanel, Louis V, or Prada? But the better question is, who can afford them? NOT ME! While Starbucks is a decent job, it does not pay for the luxurious life I sometimes dream of having... However, that's when consignment stores come in handy.
- a store that sells secondhand items (typically clothing and accessories) on behalf of the original owner, who receives a percentage of the selling price
English: you take your nice clothes/accessories in, they give you money for them and sell the items at a discount.
I'm not completely sure where all my blog traffic is coming from (country-wise) but I know it varies. For west coast USA, here is a short list of some of my favorite places to shop, where the once hefty price tag, is no longer.
- The Finer Consigner
- Name Droppers
- Uptown Cheapskate
- Plato's Closet
- Cassandra's Closet
- Coyote Exchange
Those are just some of my favorite around where I live, but consignment stores exist all over the world.
Below are some of my favorite (authentic purchases) in the bag/wallet department.
Prices may vary from store to store and geographical location. After an extensive search in hopes of finding an accurate original price on google, these were the numbers I came up with.
