The Gift of Thrift




Hermes Handbag



and...

My Thrifted Version 
 

I. Magnin


Made in Italy


Mint Condition

 Just goes to show that classic, good taste never goes out of style!


HERMES UPDATE

Remember this post where my mom scored 2 Hermes blouses at the thrift store?


I sold the Kachina print blouse for her on ebay last week for an astonishing $1050!
 

I'm so happy for her!


Perfect timing for a cash infusion!!!

Will you be doing any of your Christmas shopping at the thrift store?

Terri,
That purse is gorgeous! I loved I Magnin. So sad they aren't around anymore. They had some lovely things under the I. Magnin house brand.

Congrats to your mom! What a great find. It shows all the hunting pays off!

That is amazing! The blouse...I mean. I have to say it is really ugly. I like hermez but that particular print...yuck!

Yes! As well as Etsy shops, the auctions at goodwill.com (just be careful with the GW shipping costs), and estate sales. The only trouble is parting with the lovely things I purchase. Maybe everyone will just get cookies this year!
