What to bid for online: Vintage clothing and accessories - just make sure to check the measurements as sizing nowadays differs radically from sizing in the past. Costume jewellery - look for some classic Kenneth Jay Lane pieces or items from older brands such as Hermes and Chanel. Surplus stock of designer shoes - you can find brands such as Alaia and Jimmy Choo at a considerable discount. Sold-out designer 'It' bags - once again, just be sure to ask questions about the authenticity and check the seller's background. Last season's leftovers - look for 'to-die-for' items at dramatically reduced prices.
