When I interned in San Francisco I lived two doors away from a Goodwill. Some of you may turn your nose up at this, but this Goodwill was beyond amazing. My first day walking through I bought a Oscar de la Renta pencil skirt, and a YSL bag all for $150. I don't even think I can BREATHE around a YSL bag for $150! As you can see, I'm a big fan of thrifting. Although I'm not as good at it as some of my friends (it's really a gift), I've come to appreciate the art of it all bit more. You can really find some amazing things in consignment shops if you have the time to search. I'm not a person whose patience is in tip top form, therefore my thrift shop hunts only occur once a season. For those of you like me who just don't feel like looking for treasure, there's still hope!

The Covet Shop is a high end consignment shop which launched about three months ago, specializing in rare vintage finds from big name designers like Gucci, Chanel, Yves St Laurent, and so on. Started by a fashion industry vet and her graphic designer of a husband, the website was created not only to make it a bit easier on those of us too lazy to search vintage shops, but also for consigners who want to make a little room in their designer filled closet by recycling their treasures essentially giving them a second life.

So the next time you don't feel like looking through a pot of crap for that one piece of gold, check out the Covet Shop. Oh, and make sure you get something for me as well. Just saying...
