Thrift Finds: Doc Boots and Longchamp!

Doc Martin Boots, Goodwill Outlet ($2.50)
Patent Leather Longchamp Bag, Goodwill Outlet ($2)
Here are my other two couldn't-believe-it purchases from Saturday: Doc Martin boots in my size, and a patent leather authentic Longchamp bag! I think the reason that these two scores were still in the bins was the lack of brand recognition by the other thrifters.

Longchamp I can understand, since it's a luxury brand that I wouldn't recognize if I didn't read fashion magazines. But when I was trying on the Doc boots, a man came up to me and asked if they were Timberlands! When I told him the real brand, he had never even heard of Doc Martins! No matter. :) I'm just happy they were there when I got there, since I'd never be able to afford either in a regular shop!

The one bummer thing is that there are a couple tiny pen marks on the patent leather of the bag, which I totally don't mind. For two bucks, thrifters can't be choosers!!

Always,
Amanda
