It feels wonderful when you find a Fendi handbag for $25 at a flea market; a small treasure, just sitting there waiting for you to arrive. Finding great buys like this feels–well–awesome! To find your bliss, here are some great tips and advice on how you can find wonderful sales and discounts on great designer clothes and more.
Shop, Shop, and Then–Shop Some More!
As most dedicated coupon cutters will advise, you must research and know all sales and specials to find the best deal at the lowest cost. This is true when shopping for discounted designer clothing and handbags. Begin shopping at flea markets, thrift stores, online, and frequent garage or estate sales to find wonderful bargains and sales. Besides these outlets, some other great places to check out are T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Burlington Coat Factory, and Gordmans . These places offer extremely low prices on designer brands, but you must be very patient and at peace with the world, because it can be frustrating finding that perfect something within over crowded racks and displays.
My favorite places to shop are consignment stores, such as Plato’s Closet and Clothes Mentor, which sell gently used designer clothing, shoes, and handbags. At Clothes Mentor, I found a gorgeous pair of Coach Clogs—which normally sells for $180 – $200–for $40 and left very happy, indeed!
