Hi lovlies hope you all are doing awesome! If you are just visiting my blog for the first time, you are very much welcome. My appreciation also goes out to those who have been reading consistently, I love you all.
Did you hear me say LV bag? Yes! You heard right! The amazing thing about thrifting is discovering high end and designer pieces and what’s even more amazing is you don’t have to break the bank to buy them because with a good bargain you will be walking home with a classic piece for just a little price. And most times, those sellers don’t even know the staples they are selling off for a meagre sum are high brand pieces.
I was strolling through the market, money in purse and just looking for a bag or two to buy, I had a specific mission, “to buy a bag”. Often times i have deviated from the specific plan of buying a particular item and gone on to spend on things i never budgeted for. I’m sure most of you can relate to this.
The LV bag was just lying there amongst other bags on the floor (probably waiting for me Lol!) and when I picked it up, I knew I had found “The one!” (sorry boo, not you). When i asked the seller the price and she said N100 (yep! you heard right!) i just looked at her and thought to myself “is this woman kidding me? Does she know what this is?”. Anyway, i bought another bag from her, Paid her N200 and strolled happily away. I could have danced ‘shoki’ for this bag at the market but my ancestors would find that embarrassing so i just maintained my cool.
I have rocked it a few times and it’s one of my favourite in my collection(not that i’m a bag kinda girl). Until i Can afford millions to spend on a new Lv bag, I would have to make do with this one.
What designer/high-end thrift piece do you own? what is the most ridiculous amount you have spent on a thrift piece?
Ps: The thrift treasure is a new series on the blog where i’ll share with you all my thrift finds. If it’s thrifted and beautiful! Be sure you’d see it.
Word of the day : Good things comes to those who thrift.
