Brian and suited, great hauls! I'm glad you guys were able to pick up such great finds during what appears to be a crazy time period!
Re that Prada, I don't have the best eye, but it looks like most of the Prada I've picked up that has the red rubber tag on the front. I don't know whether it helps, but if I suspect a fake, I check the stitching pattern on small tags, such as the size tag. It's fairly easy to do those pretty crooked and most of the legit items I've had in my possession do a pretty good job of lining up a stack of tags, even the smallest top tags. Not a very scientific approach, but it helps me make a quick decision if I'm at a store.Secret Santa Announcement

Just wanted to remind everyone that there is less than two weeks to find, pack and send your items! I know some have already sent and received their things, so props go to those that are so organized and efficient to get things sent. We'd all appreciate seeing what you receive, so if you wouldn't mind posting a photo of your goods (if you haven't already), it would really be great! I was also thinking that we could all post photos on/around/near the same date and repost photos if you have already done so. I thought around the 14th as it's a Friday and most should have received their packages by that day. Let me know if you have feedback on that.
Also, and this is important, please let me know via PM when you receive your secret santa gift. Some have messaged me and I really appreciate is as I'm keeping a list of who has received something. If, in the end, you haven't gotten anything, I can get in contact with your secret santa.
On the same note, if you can't get your gift out in time or you won't be able to find something, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! If it's due to a lack of time, I'm sure I can help out by contacting others that might have things lying around that they're willing to proxy. Worst case scenario, you can email a gift card to your secret santa for $20. If you are having trouble paying for gifts/shipping, again, let me know and I'm definitely willing to help you out! I know holidays can be stressful in both time and money management, so if there are any issues, I'm willing to help out in any way that I can!
I haven't been able to get out in awhile, so I'm living vicariously through you guys! I can only offer up a few pictures of the Christmas markets/decorations that have gone up in the city center. Spoiler contains nothing about thrifting, so feel free to ignore it!Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
