Burberry Nova Check PJ’s!

Here is Joanne’s fabulous find! At Neiman Marcus, with a simple white tshirt, you would be paying $175.

Joanne picked these cute pj’s up for $4! She plans on wearing them as lounge pants this Summer! Made in Great Britain, they are like new!

More Fluevog’s!

Again, we are always amazed at the number of Fluevog’s that we come across! I supposed living close to Vancouver increases our chances. These Fluevog boots were $20 and are practically new. Who can reist a 19 hole boot that resists Satan? ‘Walk in peace’.

Vintage Gucci!

These finds are the best finds.  Today we found a beautiful vintage Gucci clutch.  I believe it is circa 1950’s.  Large logo with Gucci colors, vintage gold stamping ‘Made In Italy by Gucci’.  Suede and leather with leather lining.  Feels so, so, so well made.  I love it!  $2.99!!!!!!!!  Vintage Gucci’s are very popular now, and are often imitated (we definitely come across more knock off’s than the real thing).  This is a very unique piece and is in amazing condition!  I’m sure it’s at least 50 years old!

Lululemon and Coach!

Here are a few more finds! While lululemon may not be considered designer, it is expensive. And it’s everywhere! We picked up this (HUGE) gym bag for $7.99.

And these cute Coach sandals ($15 as we had 30% off because we brought along our favorite senior!) make us only that much more excited for SUN and SUMMER!

There was one more fabulous find today, by yet another one of our thrifting relatives. A cute pair of Burberry pj pants for $4! These same pants are sold at Neiman Marcus with a white tshirt for around $175! YAY JOANNE! We will post photos of these in the near future!

Paige Premium and Madame Alexander Dolls!

Here are this weekends finds! First is a pair of Paige Premium skinny jeans (my size!). Retails $189. We paid $9.99!

The other finds is not fashion related. Just one of my weird little obsessions. A while back I saw that McDonald’s was giving away Madame Alexander dolls with Happy Meals. I am not a McDonald’s Mom. At all. And could not fathom the idea of taking my kids to McDonald’s once a week to collect these dolls. We made one trip and ‘I’ did get the Mad Hatter. Today I added several second hand (but most with the tags still attached, which my three year old has lovingly removed) for $1.99. Some people may be creeped out by these little people, but I LOVE them.

Sure would’ve come in handy at a certain Tea Party!!

Salvatore Ferragamo

It’s always amazing to me when brands such as Salvatore Ferragamo show up. All the time. This is by far one of the most common high end names we see. We have found many beautiful silk scarves, men’s neck ties, bags and SHOES. Lot’s and lot’s of shoes.

We picked this pair of Ferragamo slides up for $7.99. They had never been walked on. And fit me like a glove. 🙂 Very simple style with a huge engraved plate on the front. I love them!
