Thrift find of the week!

Currently on sale at Ebay.com, are these fabulous Gucci beige high top sneakers in suede, from Tom Fords last collection at Gucci, which retailed at $980 and are available to buy it now for $525.




So, you can imagine my delight, when I found a pair of these in my local Salvation Army charity shop yesterday for £4.99!!! Wow, that is a fab bargain, plus they fit like a glove-the suede is deliciously soft and my pair are in tip top condition! The thrift find of the week, most definitely!

Hi there-thanks so much for your lovely comments everyone! Wendy, I was very surprised at what they were when I found them on ebay, I knew they were Gucci, but from Tom Fords last collection too! Ladies who Lunch, yes, I'm surprised too, maybe they didn't fit the previous owner? Still their loss is my gain!

I'd never pay $ 900 or $500 for these, however $10 doesn't sound so bad! lol
Great bargain Sharon! :)
