Last year we found this little vintage Ferragamo handbag at the Family Thrift Outlet store for $2.   The leather was in such poor condition we almost passed on it until we decided it was at least worth salvaging for the chain strap, which could be used as a belt or necklace.  CLICK HERE to read that blog post.

This week we attended the 2015 reNew and reDo Fashion Chairs Kickoff Party at Neiman Marcus, requiring a step up from our everyday attire.   Jen decided she was going to wear this red dress by “Pink Tartan”, she had found it at Goodwill for $9.99 (similar retails for $395 at Saks Fifth Avenue).  We couldn’t decide on what necklace she should wear, then she remembered that little red handbag.  She removed the chain from the back and put it around her neck.  We instantly knew it was a winner when we saw the gold platform shoes!   Of course, the handbag was also a perfect match with her dress!

This past week we found some amazing items at several different thrift store, it was almost hard to choose when asked “What was your favorite find of the week?”

Jen found this vintage circa 1990 Ferragamo crossbody handbag for $2.00 at Family Thrift Outlet (Little York).    A similar bag, in black, is being sold for $450 online. “This belt-bag in red leather features a 46-inch, removable gold-tone belcher chain with two platform shoe charms, two belt-loops and a faille ribbon with three gold-tone buttons, each with three shoes in relief.”   This purse is not in mint condition and will need to be professionally cleaned.   If for some reason the leather is not able to be salvaged the chain itself will make a fantastic necklace or belt.

Pippa found this men’s Burberry jacket for $2.00 at Family Thrift Outlet (Little York), similar style sold for $795.  The inside of the collar was absolutely filthy but for that price it was hard to pass up, knowing she could at least TRY to clean it.   DAWN dish soap is her secret weapon to get out almost any spot or stain … and it worked!
