On Saturday October 20th, I attended my first ever CAFTCAD Movie Wardrobe Sale. This was located at 225 Commissioners Street, right by all the film studios. Unaware of the prices, I have to admit I brought more than I usually can afford to spend. But what a pleasant surprise it was! Prices were AH-MAZING. Like racks of clothes for $5. My girlfriend found me an almost-new Zara blazer for $5 and she scored an even newer down filled Perry Ellis winter coat for $10! Yup, THAT kind of amazing. I would say there were about 20 booths total and I was intrigued by almost every booth! More than what I can say about the last Vintage Clothing Show. If you love vintage shopping or even a great deal, I suggest you check this out next time. Below are some pics for your viewing pleasure:
