Bargain Buyers

You should put this on your "Things to-do-list". It's a shopping tour. On Saturday, my friend Laurenza and I went on a shopping tour called Bargain Buyers. Basically, you raise funds for your pre-school, school, organised group, non-profit organisation, or a group of friends getting together for a day of fun. You'll have a friendly tour guide telling showing you where all the cheap, but stylish shopping places are in Sydney.

The shopping tour I went to cost $50, but you should check the website for details. Yes, morning or afternoon tea, as well as lunch is also provided.

I lost count at the number of warehouses I've been to, but there were two places which were brilliant!

Handbags & Shoes-Auburn

Here are the details to Handbags & Shoes Factory Outlet:

Shop 2, 55-59 Parramatta Road
Lidcombe NSW 2141
Ph: 02 9647 2577

The name says it all! This was the shop that most of the women at the shopping tour went nuts! You see, Handbags & Shoes stocks brands such as Review, Jag, Diana Ferrari, Fiorelli and Annapelle which are 50-70% off the RRP. I purchased a Miu Miu coffret-inspired bag by Review:

Review Kierra Bag-$59.50

If I were to buy this at Review boutique stores, Myer or David Jones, I'll spend $119.95 on this bag. Nevertheless, it's cheaper than spending on the original:

Miu Miu Suede Coffer bag-$1912.47

As much as I love it, it'll cost me an arm and a leg to get this bag.

Victoria's Basement-Auburn

This place sells many fine cutlery, pots and ceramics. These bowls are made by a brand called Benzer. I fell in love with the bold, bright colours depicting an old-style cafe in Paris. Victoria's Basement at Auburn have these items 50% off the RRP. So, get in and buy some pretty cutlery and dinnerware.

Benzer Salad Bowl "Cafe de Paris" series-$29.95

Benzer 16cm bowl "Cafe de Paris" series-$9.95

You should give these shopping tours a go. Sorry for the lack of clothing post, I'll be onto one really soon! Happy shopping my fellow petites!
