Find upscale, resale gifts at Second Début

By Guest Blogger Lindsey Herzog

It’s the holiday season, which means twinkling lights, hot cocoa by the fire and a whole lot of Christmas shopping. And, let’s face it, as much as we love our friends and family and as generous as we really do want to be with our shopping, the whole thing can get a little on the expensive side. So why not cut our shopping bill in half without having to forfeit quality gifts? That’s what’s so great about thrift-gifting – especially when the items come from Second Début.

In case you’re not familiar with it, Second Début is a mens and womenswear branch of Goodwill – located in St. Louis Park with more of an intimate boutique vibe. Everything is hand-selected, brand-name and designer. And lucky for you, I did some pre-shopping for you. I picked out 3 gifts for the guys in your life and 3 for the ladies, for low, medium, & higher budgets.

For the guys …
… I found these incredible Brendan Murphy dress shoes that look like they hadn’t been worn for a single day. And the silk tie? Total dynamite. Last but not least, there was a classy-beyond-classy Ralph Lauren sportcoat.

For the ladies …
… I came across a ridiculously gorgeous fur coat. Which turned out to be made by a vintage Minneapolis designer. There was also a pair of stunning little gold glitter Steve Madden heels – half the usual price, of course. And lastly, some pretty crystal-esque earrings that look like they could be straight out of a J.Crew catalog.
