Second Hand Love

Hey loves,

I love vintage shopping, because it is so much fun and exciting. Your own patience is the key.
So I personaly prefer to buy on sale price - sale season has begun, after the Christmas, but I am not forgetting about my favourite thrifted stores. Thats my World, beyond eBay, but I take for the biggest store, it is full vintage surprises....

You can find the "bijous"; often the best is hidden good beneath all the other stuff. Serendipity!

  22. I love vintage shopping too! I think it is because I have always been into history so I think it is so cool to be able to pick something up that might have a really interesting history... (Once I found a piece of vintage French luggage, with a Yves Saint Laurent gown and Yves Saint Laurent bag in it, and a note saying how it was a present from the husband to his new wife in the early 1970's. I guess they donated the stuff and forgot to take the greeting card out or something... It was all really romantic and so surprising!)

    And I have found so many amazing pieces this way! Everything from Moschino bags to Missoni scarves, Burberry trenchcoats etc. for amazing prices!

    I could go on and on... so in short, I definitely know what you mean :)
