Clearance/Sale Find: Guess Denim Purse (Blue)

Like this purse, I also purchased this one online via Guess website. Actually, I bought them at once. Shopping online is hassle-free but is kinda upsetting when the stuff arrives and it doesn't look like what you are expecting for, something to that effect.

Anyway, I got it 50% off the original price ($128.00)  so it is already a good find. It is wide and big so I usually take it with me everytime we go to Reno. I also had brought it with me during my visit to the Philippines last year.

Thanks for dropping by!

Thrift Shop Find: DKNY Denim Long Jacket Coat

I so love this jacket coat!  I considered it as one of my best possessions because it is DKNY :)

I bought it for $6.99 from a thrift store in Reno. The Asian Store (Manila Hongkong) in Reno has 3 thrift shops nearby so after I'm done with my Pinoy foods shopping, I'd go to one of the stores afterwards to look around and to buy if I see good finds.

I spend long hours inside the store, sometimes hubby would complain especially if he waited like 2 to 3 hours and when I'm done, I check out 2 or 3 items only, sometimes, nothing. Well, that's just me, hehehe! Before I buy anything especially from a thrift store, I would check the item inside out to make sure that it's a good find, otherwise, it's just a waste of money.

Clearance/Sale Find: Guess Denim Purse (Beige)

I was  looking for a nice purse to compliment my beige boots last night when I saw this purse still wrapped in shopping bag by the farthest end of my closet. I was like, "Ayayay, there you are!" I have forgotten this purse for a long time. I purchased it online a year ago.

I got this Guess purse for half the original price ($115.00), plus free shipping. I actually bought two purses that time. I don't really like to shop online because it's kinda addictive. Many times that I ended up not using the stuff especially those Levi's jeans I bought. It's just a waste of money.

Anyway, this purse is one of my favorites because it is "branded" and I bought it new :)

Garage/Yard Sale Finds: Pink Boots and Pink Purse

I have already posted a blog about these two gorgeous stuff in my Straight from Bechay blog. These are my most favorites among my fabulous finds because I always get compliments everytime I wear them. The brand is unknown but I bought them very cheap. I bought the pink boots for $3.00 in new condition from a yard sale and the bag/purse for $1.00 in a very good condition from a garage sale. Yup, they were from different owners.

I love going to yard/garage/estate sales every summer to look around and to buy if I find good stuff  like books, kitchen gadgets, accessories, etc. I am one of those people who believes this saying "One man's trash is another man's treasure".

Thrift Shop Find: Kathy Van Zeeland Purse

My gay friend Pinky just moved in to his new apartment last week and he needed table and chairs. A Filipina who is working as a volunteer in one of the Thrift Shops has informed him that they got table and chairs over there so I drove him to the said shop to check.

While he was checking the stuff, I looked around for just anything. Then I saw this white purse... I was like, "Hmm. This is pretty!" I checked it inside and out to make sure that it has no defect. I did not find one. I wanted to run to the cashier to pay it right there and then until I saw the price. I was like, "$6.00! This is too much!" I only pay up to $3.99 on purses I found in yard/garage sales, and thrift shop. I don't "splurge" on second hand stuff, hehehe!

Pinky said it's already a good find so I bought it anyway :)

Yard Sale Find: Chic N' Cheap Boots and Purse

I keep forgetting this other blog of mine. Shame.

Anyway, from now on, I will try to update this blog once a week. I had so many fabulous stuff that I bought from garage/yard sales last summer to be posted here but I've been busy with my other blogs: Straight from Bechay, Kukabildo, Bechay in the Kitchen lately.

Now,  let me share these pretty pair of boots that I bought for $2.00  in mint condition last summer. The purse was $3.00, new with tag which I bought 2 years ago. I forgot that I still had this purse until last Sunday when I looked for my other purse in the closet to pair with the boots. All these years, I thought I've already sent it to the Philippines long time ago. 

As you can see in the photo, there are small compartments inside which I didn't like. But I like the letter "B" that comes with it so I decided to pair it with my pretty boots at the church that day :) "B" stands for "Bechay" you know, hehehe!

Thanks for visiting!

Til next time!
