Any one who has said they can't find good stuff at Goodwill just isn't looking. I am not one to flip through each hanger on the rack either, and I still find excellent items. After awhile you start to develop eagle eye thrifting skills and can spot tag on clothing a mile away. Finding designer brands will also become a specialty. Heck, even in my dreams I am finding high-fashion Lacroix!
The same day of my Pyrex haul, I also had another winning pick. Can you already guess the brand by seeing this photo?
I was skimming the coat racks and spotted a pattern that I have seen in the pages of Vogue. I stopped and dug for the tag and yep, it was Burberrys of London! I pulled out the coat and found it to be a full-length classic trench coat in good condition. It was missing two buttons, but better brands usually have extras sewn into the lining and they were. The hubby was with me on this thrifting trip and asked, "Is this the brand that I see on commercials where the models always look pissed off?" Ha!! I love him, and I told him he was correct. I was glad he was along. I had to leave the cart a few times and told him that he was to guard it with his life. I mean, there were *both* Pyrex fridgies and Burberry in the cart!
The price I paid for this coat is beyond amazing. The missing buttons have been replaced and the designer trench coat is now listed in my ebay store. After some research it looks like they went from the 'Burberrys' of London just to plain old Burberry about 10 years ago. This trench is an old school classic piece!
What is your biggest designer find at the thrifts?
