Usually I write about beauty stuff rather than fashion. But I would like to make an exception since I did such a good purchase during my visit in Amsterdam. Let me tell you how I scored a brand new leather jacket for only € 35!
Last week I went to the sample sale of the brand Goose craft in Amsterdam. There were many people in the queue and two friends and I waited patiently for our chance to buy a unique leather jacket. And yes, we entered in this big industrial building in the Westergasfabriek. There were a lot of leather jackets, such as biker jackets, but also leather skirts, and leather dresses. Normally these items are very expensive. The coats are usually more than € 300. I saw some coats in this special sale for € 50 but most of the nicer coats were € 85.
We roamed around, it took us 3 hours to try coats and dresses on. People were queuing in front of the mirrors, piling up the jackets on the floor. Yes, we didn’t have the luxury of shopping in a shop. But I have to admit it was pretty well organized after all. In between many items I found my treasures. It felt a bit like looking for gold.
The original price of this coat was around € 350. But because of a little crack in the sleeve, I could get this jacket for € 35, after showing a sales assistance this crack and asking for discount. That’s a good deal, since I can glue the crack. (The sample sale price price was € 85)
I also bought this bomber jacket for € 85.
