1. Wondering if you ladies might have some advice for what to do with these Chanel heels I thrifted for fifty pennies.
    The leather is intact but the white has yellowed and looks very dingy. One shoe is also missing a buckle.
    Is it worth it to dye these black? Would the buckle be hard to replace?

    If anyone can point me to a group that would be better for posting this question - would be much appreciated! IMG_9323.jpgIMG_9324.jpgIMG_9325.jpg

    I would take them to a leather shop, I have a leather guy in my town that fixes these types of things. Maybe look for someone where you live.

    ETA Maybe you can order a buckle from Chanel. Not sure but worth a try.

  3. Wow Raven, you cleaned up! If memory serves me right you had found a necklace version of that Tiffany beaded bracelet, didn't you? Always such a treat to find Tiffany's thrift stores missed :biggrin: The alpaca ring is very cool
     
  4. Holy moly! Story of a life time. Congrats, it will be very tough to beat that find!

  5. Jama, that looks divine. Glad you are rescuing her. Thanks on the compliments! Keep us posted if you ever decide to dye your scarf.
     
  6. Lol thanks Raven :smile:
     
  7. Great find for such an amazing price! I am a DIY coloring and dying rebel but I would not dye the insole leather of that shoe. No matter how good the dye it will be coming off on your feet while wearing. I would just scrub it with alcohol / disinfectant really well.

    On Friday i got a Miu miu bag from the thrift for $10; the coach bag was $3 and the mk watch $5 from the flea market.

    The Coach is for my mom.

    I keep on telling myself i do not another black bag, but i just couldn't resist.

  12. In the past, I have found four Hermes handbags. It is very exciting and you will find your Hermes one day. Now my white whale is the Chanel, I want a Chanel.

  13. With the interior, try plain old shaving cream; see if that helps.

  15. Lucky! I have been thrifting for almost 30 years and still no Chanel bags or anything Hermes other than ties :sad:
