Whats been your biggest bargain which you didn't source or buy from HUKD?
I have two really;
Went to a bootsale with my mum one day and spotted a really mucky pair of straighteners. Asked how much they were and paid £1 for them. Took them home and cleaned off what turned out to be foundation (think they'd been kept in a make up bag.)
Plugged them in, turned them on and voila, a pair of pink limited edition GHD straighteners. Checked they were authentic and they were. Gave them to my mum as I already had a pair- they're still going strong, she loves them. She was there when I got them so she knows what I paid and helped me clean them up-I didn't give them as a present or anything lol.
Second bargain, theres a dingy little charity shop in a local village that's like an Aladdin's cave. Under a rack of clothes they keep a washbasket full of handbags and I always have a look through them when I'm in there cos they're only 50p. Once I found a nice brown leather looking bag, looked inside to see if there was a maker's label and found a Harrod's label. Took it home to inspect it and found a further label stating its Italian leather etc etc. I've not sold it for profit or anything, kept hold of it 'cos it's lovely. I did end up giving the shop a fiver as I would have felt really guilty giving 50p, but I still feel a bit bad I didn't give them more.
Anyway, they were my best bargains! Come on, spill-what have you found in the past?
