Some people simply don't understand the value of a handbag. But their loss can be your gain if you shop yard and garage sales in your local area. Unlike thrift stores which tend to have a slow merchandise turn-over, new people are having yard sales each week with new merchandise being offered. Many times the sellers just want to sell everything at their sale and therefore offer items for low prices. This means you could potentially find an authentic, semi-valuable vintage handbag for a low price. You can also purchase vintage looking fabric at some yard sales so you can design and sew your own vintage handbag. Check your local paper each week to find out where the yard and garage sales are in your town; you never know what you'll find.
