Shopping for amazing Vintage pieces - Kim's tips

So - You're ready to go treasure-hunting...here are a few Easy Tips:
- Firstly, make sure you visit your local consignment store during the week. Weekends are so busy, so during the week will allow you to ask as many questions and get as much help as you need.
- Secondly, introduce yourself to the store manager and tell them what you are looking for, like what kind of styles you are after. The store manager or owner knows exactly where everything is in their store and more than often it is in a bin, behind a coat under some shoes ;-)
- Thirdly, try your outfits on. Make sure your piece can be washed or dry- cleaned and shoes can be easily resoled.
- Don’t be afraid to tailor or make alterations to your glorious find.
