cocoandvera 's thoughts:

The last time I bought something second hand, I was seventeen. My prom dress was a $35 black full length vintage number. The store it came from closed shortly after- the Canadian prairies aren’t exactly the sort of place where vintage stores thrive.

There is a fair distance between me and seventeen these days… But I’ve been on the hunt for a Chanel-style purse (who can afford the real thing?!) and Gastown’s Deluxe Junk was the store that came through for me. Now that I’ve made the leap to vintage shopping, I can see myself doing it more often. At least, I hope. I still need guidance, though. Any tips from seasoned vintage shoppers?

More to see on my blog! http://cocoandvera.blogspot.com

really cute bag! I found something similar to that at my favorite thrift store here minus the chain (a clutch) when it comes to thrift shopping, it's good to go with whatever find you really like. works for me most of the time. :)
