Check out what fellow thrifter scored from Goodwill & Salvation Army…

I LOVEEEE  getting emails from my readers telling me their stories and sharing photos about all the luxury they scored from thrifting.  That is music to my tone deaf ears !    This is a letter from Vanessa and I want to share it with you:

Hi Daniel,

Of course you know I’m a huge fan of your blog!  My closet is about 85-90% thrifted designer items that I’ve scored at my local Goodwill and Salvation Army.  So, naturally I had to send some pics when I saw you were looking for reader submissions.

This is just the stuff I’ve scored in the last couple of months.  (I’ve been hardcore thrifting for 5+ years.)  Sorry the pics aren’t the best.  My regular camera died, so I took pics on my cell.  Here’s what I’m sending:

- Red leather tote bag by BCBG Max Azria.  Retails $300.  I paid $7.99 @ Goodwill.
- Black leather bomber jacket by Paper Denim & Cloth (designer denim brand).  Retails $250.  I paid $19.99 @ Goodwill.
- Vintage, white lambskin, quilted chain bag by Bally of Switzerland.  Retails $400?  I paid $4.99 at Goodwill.
- Taupe cashmere/silk sweater by Chaiken.  Retails $175.  Paid $3.99 at Goodwill.
- White & gold suede heels by Marc Jacobs.  Retails $400?  Paid $2.99 at Salvation Army.
- Two pairs (navy and purple) flats from Belle by Sigerson Morrison.  Retails $250 each.  I paid $10.00 ($4.99 each) @ Goodwill.
- Black cocktail dress by Maria Bianca Nero (shown with vintage gold chain belt/necklace, Vince Camuto heels and Tano of Italy clutch, all thrifted).  Retails $300.  I paid $10.00 at a local Chicago thrift shop called Brown Elephant that supports outreach for GLBT youth in crisis.

Enjoy, and KEEP THRIFTING!  Love your blog! :-)
