Luxury Garage Sale
The bog-standard suburban garage sale isn’t usually considered a fertile ground for vogueish finds... That is unless you fancy frocking up in a moth-eaten eighties power suit or toting a neon PVC fanny pack, circa 1992.

However, we know of one oh-so chic stash of pre-loved fashion that is a truly delightful rummage. Old Town’s Luxury Garage Sale stocks a positive plethora of new and lightly used designer duds, the likes of which you’ll certainly struggle to find at your neighbour’s spring clean clear-out.

A favourite with Chi-town’s fashionistas, the double-fronted store channels the same tastefully retro style as the covetable clobber it showcases, with seventies-esque wallpaper and select found furny. 

Lining the floating racks are bold bodycon dresses by Alexander McQueen, Burberry duffle coats, multicoloured Missoni tops and cropped blazers by Yves Saint Laurent, among many other on-point time-honoured pieces from all the choicest names.

And to pair with your wears, scour the store’s slick selection of heels (could you be tempted by some patent leather Louboutin pumps, perhaps?), Jacques Fath silk scarves and mint condish Hermès Birkins in palettes ranging from sunny yellow and sky blue to ever-instyle brown.

This vintage vixen even delivers on the bling front with classic Chanel pearls, statement necklaces by Thorin & Co. and even some Cartier sparklers. Good luck finding those at your next local yard sale.
