Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 Bag

In our 9 years of designer thrift shopping and resell, we have found many amazing things. To our own surprise, we have never come across an authentic Louis Vuitton bag. We have found LV shoes, scarves, neck ties and even a dress. But never an authentic bag. Today changed that! We picked up this authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy 25 for $29.99!

The date code is on a leather tag under the interior pocket. Made in France (SP) in 2001. The natural patina to the leather adds to the look of this Louis. It has obviously been lovingly carried, but is in amazing condition.

An exciting first for us!

Louis Vuitton!

While we often see the name Louis Vuitton while thrift shopping we very rarely see authentic Louis Vuitton!  This jumper is authentic.  It is wool and silk and looks to be brand new!

Marc Jacobs!

What is even better than finding a brand new authentic Marc Jacobs second hand, is finding all of the extra straps inside!  While we consider $34.99 a little steep (cheap, we know) this bag looks as though it has never been carried.  In addition to the shoulder strap on it (which can be removed to carry as a clutch) there are two additional straps inside (one for cross body and one for wristlet).  YAY!!

St John!

This isn’t a name that we see all of the time, but it’s a name that does appear occasionally while thrifting.  Extremely expensive, when bought new.  we paid only $12.99 for this tweed jacket by St John Collection.  It retails at hundreds.

 

This set was only $14.99 where we shop.  Again, new it would’ve been hundreds!  Both St John’s items are perfect, probably worn once!

ZILLI. A Little Something for the Boys.

Here it is.  Our most valuable find to date.  Doesn’t look like anything that spectacular?  This Lambskin leather coat is cashmere lined with mink trim came all the way from the Zilli Boutique in France.  We found it at a thrift shop in a suburb of Vancouver, BC.  After doing a little research we discovered that the retail value of this coat would have been somewhere between $25,000-$40,000.  Wow.  We still can’t believe it.

While we don’t support the killing of anything for fashion…  We are always surprised when things turn up second hand!  We paid $25.  The smallest fraction of retail (ever).
