AN eagle-eyed shopper has found a valuable treasure at a thrift shop.

Millions of people have made a living by reselling profitable items they find at garage sales and second-hand sales.

All it takes is a little bit of patience and attention to detail.

On TikTok, the account @RetroToyEnvy shares videos full of thrifting and reselling tips.

Last month, he posted a video showing his followers a large, floral bag that he almost passed up.

He said he decided to inspect the bag because of how well-made it appeared to be. It had shiny, gold hardware and intricate stitching on the handle.

The bag was priced at $20.49, which is a bit steep for a second-hand shop.

When he opened the bag the interior was in extremely good condition and even had the original mirror that came with it.

There was a plastic lining and hinges to help keep the bag open while it was being sorted through.

Luckily, he found a tag inside and saw it was made by the French company, and had sold for in the past.

Earlier this year the bag sold for $249.99, making it a no-brainer for the thrifter to take it home.


Finding a luxury item at the thrift store happens more often than you’d think.

Every day valuable things make their way into donation piles, just waiting for the patient person who will dig through to find them.

One of those people is TikTok user @Thriftygalnation, who meticulously works through thrift shop inventory to find hidden gems.

She posted a video to show her followers how she found a Dior makeup bag.

The designer purse was made of a shiny black fabric and had the iconic “D” logo hardware for the zipper.

At just $1, she couldn’t pass it up.

While some commentators doubted the authenticity of the bag, one person mentioned it’s a real Dior beauty bag that comes with other products.

“That’s a free Dior beauty bag that comes with perfumes or makeup… a gift with purchase.”
