    Blush Have you ever??

    Got an amazing deal on something worth a WHOLE lot of money at a yard sale?? Like maybe this amazingly fashionable woman passed away and her children didn't know how much her things were worth so they sold them dirt cheap?? I always wondered about that!! Like one day I stop at a yard sale and there is a LV trunk and the person selling it has no idea how much it's worth and they sell it for like $100!! I would die if I ran into anything that was Louis Vuitton and Authentic! I know my dad went to a yard sale and this woman's children were selling her stuff (she had passed away) and they had NO CLUE what anything was. They sold my dad these Ruby Earrings. They said they were fake so just give them $5 for it. My dad took it to an apprasier... they were worth $1000. Anyone have any similar expierences??? I'm dying to find an old LV trunk to make as a table. My dad ran into some and the guy only wanted $1000 for it! OF course he told me like a week later what he had saw!! I was so upset!! The guy was desperate for money and he was trying to sell everything dirt cheap. I would of had to have seen it myself to see if it was real but the guy told my dad it was from the 1900's... which can be believable. I have def. seen some 1900 LV trunks at Antique stores for $5- 10 grand. Anyone have some stories?? Please share!! hehe!!

    That would be awesome to find something vintage (or new) at a y.s. for super cheap or at a deal. Actually I'm on my way to an estate auction. . im so excitted. .my friend told me about it. All day yesterday they had the walk through where you can go and check out the stuff. . she was there for the crystal stuff and furniture but she said there was a bunch of designer bags, scarves, jewelry and clothes. I'm Excitted! I hope I can find something!

    Default How to lose tons of $ on a (i think fake) hermes

    Let me start off by saying I am stupid. Very stupid for not going to the walk through the day before to check out the stuff. So I went there not really knowing what to expect as far as designer stuff. I was thinking coach, dooney bags ect. . . I sat down with my little bidders sign and the bidding started. . for the first hour before the break there was mostly crystal stuff and antique furniture. . . then after the break they brought out designer shoes and bags I was about to leave (now that i look back i wish i did)!. .The shoes were going in pairs of 3 because there was ALOT. So basically I ended up with 3 pairs of Via Spiga shoes (2 pairs still had tags still attached) for about $200ish. Then came the handbags I should have known better! There were designer bags from coach to versace. .most of them were vintage though. Arhg, so when they brought out the "H" bag I instantly recognized it at the Hermes Constance! Once again I should have known better. They advertised it as Hilfiger, (I almost choked on my water when they said that) but said they really had no idea. . I kept raising my bid. . it didnt even occure to me why "they didnt know". . IT WASNT MARKED! Uhg, so $900 later it was mine. I got it and wanted to cry. .I am such a retard! For all I know it could be hilfiger who designed this bag. sad. I called them today and left a message seeing if I can get my money back because they advertised it as Hilfiger. So all I have to do is prove its not. :wacko: I doubt I will, but I learned my lesson.


    lesson: get there early, sit in the front (!), go to the walkthrough.

    I got my money back for the bag. He was like "this rarely happens" - a refund. I mean understandable he was angry, rude, wanted proof written in writing that it was not Hilfiger (thats what it was advertised as). . which I did get from nordstroms (also they never do that, but I have a friend who works in the hd).

    I ony got a partial erfund, but I learned my lesson
