Can you guess what it is?
I’m a horrible thrift shopper. I don’t usually have enough patience, the smell inside the store gets to me, and over my years of trying to become a thrift shopper, I’ve purchased numerous pieces that I’ve worn once or not at all. After coming to the realization I get more bang for my buck by purchasing new items, I’ve almost completely stopped thrifting. I do still use Poshmark here and there, or if an item I wanted has sold out I will try to find it secondhand. (Or sometimes I decide I love a pattern from last season J.Crew…that’s what happened with this top).
Why should I buy leather bags secondhand?
1.) Good quality leather ages well – vintage ones are gorgeous
2.) You can pay a lot less for a high quality bag that will last
3.) You can find styles that are no longer made
4.) If you take good care of it you will probably be able to resell it
Where can I buy them?
-Local consignment shops
