Ha, looks like I did something wrong

Of the pieces that comprise my monstrously bloated wardrobe, I can now say that--despite spending hundreds of hours in Toronto thrifts--ZERO items were purchased at a thrift store.
I`ve been checking out the VV on bloor and the little vintage store near it. It`s the biggest VV I`ve been to but people tell me the Queen East location is better.
I picked up mostly pants at the bloor location, but I got:
two NWT Farah vintage pants, one in red and one in beige, $7 each (saw TNT in yorkville was selling them for $150!)
a bunch of NWT wesc pants in navy, black and a weird listerine green, $25 each, but I didn`t check the fit and they`re very slim
a billionaire boys tshirt (not sure if it`s real)
My fried friend got a few Ferragamo flats for less than $10 each at the Q.East location
Apparently winners can have some good finds as well, I`ve heard people finding Thom Browne and RLPL there. The only thing I`ve found there is GANT
I have better luck going to 50% off sales though, for boxing week I picked up:
at holts last call, APC new cures for $45, friend got some Michael Kors purse for $70 (apparently a steal). Saw some size 4-5 Thom Browne, apparently they will no longer carry it.
at urban I got brown sperry boat shoes for $30, toms for $10, APC madaras sweater, jacket and jeans for $35,50,25 and all of the Crate (made in LA) stuff was 50% off
at h&m, picked up the camel suit set today for more than 70% off!
but my goal is to find some Giani Versace items because I just love the prints
