My Best Thrift Find Yet!

Just thinking about this makes me happy :) Okay, so about two weeks ago school started and I wanted to thrift for backpacks! We went to my favorite thrift store and I spotted this nice backpack behind the counter. It was hanging behind all the newer coach bags and leather purses. She pulled it out and it and I could tell it was quality. I didn't recognize the brand and it was priced at $25. They said it would go on sale in a few days, but I didn't want to take the risk of it being sold before I came back! Sooooo my mom and I bought this beauty and took it home.

So, when we got home I looked up this bag online and we found out it was originally $500!!!!
This is the best thrift find yet! The brand is Ghurka and the leather trim is handcrafted in Norwalk, Connecticut. My mom made a joke that Mary Kate and Ashley wore these backpacks to their kindergarten class. 

Super Excited Emma :)

So next time you go thrifting look behind the counter if they keep the nicer stuff back there! You may just find a $500 ghurka! 

Happy Thrifting! :)
