Thrift Tip: Canadian Guidance

We've just stumbled across Bijou Living, which has a great list of thrift tips in honor of Earth Day last month.  Here are a few of our fave vintage-hunting tips from the list:

-Stay away from purses, hats and shoes with plastic lining.
-Silk likes to fool you. Really inspect the piece for oil stains. Take it outside if possible. I don't know how many stained pieces I've bought to my chagrin. 
-If you really want the old stuff the zipper will be all metal Talon or Lightning. In the words of my Japanese clients, 'No YKK."
