Thrift Score: ETRO Matching Skirt & Top

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.

Happy thrifting!
