Last week I found this beautiful matching skirt & top by designer ETRO. I was shopping at a local benefit thrift store called CHKD. It’s not my usual haunt, but I’m so glad I stopped by!
Purchased: $10 plus tax.
Sold: $163.50 plus $4.99 shipping.
The listing started at $99 and there were 6 bids. The first offers came just a few hours before the auction ended.
Obviously, I don’t know EVERY designer brand out there–or whether they are worth the cost and effort to resell. This was the first time I came across ETRO. So how did I know to buy it? These clues:
- European sizes.
- Made in Italy.
- Unique print that did not look mass produced on a soft, silky fabric.
- Marketable size (women’s large)
- And of course I researched the brand on Ebay’s sold listings and found it consistently sold for a great price.
