Do you shop second-hand and consignment? It is part of my shopping and wardrobe building toolkit. Over the years, I have managed to upgrade my wardrobe with high quality and unique items at a fraction of the price. I was looking for a pair of tan loafers this spring, and managed to find these Emerson Fry Paulo flats on eBay for $45. I have learned that this strategy involves just a bit of patience. Items from past seasons will eventually turn up on the second-hand market if you are willing to wait! Do you have any fun treasure hunting stories? I would love to hear them!
