How well do you know luxury? How do I find luxury goods for cheaper prices?

Ah! The designer brand names, the big mansions, but how well do you really know luxury? 

Click on the links below to test how savvy you are:

Guess the prices of luxury houses

Real or fake? Can you spot the knock-offs?

How well do you know your luxury brands?

If you can’t afford the mansion, you can still own luxury goods for cheaper prices except you will have to work a little harder to find the deals and avoid the fakes/knockoffs in the process.

Things you may want to know….

Where to shop for brand names for cheaper prices.  

  • Factory outlet malls
  • Ebay
  • Thrift stores or consignment stores in wealthier areas of town whether at home or on vacation.
  • Google “clearance  ______”   (prada, armani, etc. or whatever you are looking for)
  • Craigslist, newspaper ads, etc.
  • Designer clearance stores like: Nordstrom’s the rack, Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Century 21
  • Other than after Christmas sales or after Thanksgiving sales (U.S.) many stores offer discounts on long weekends, May through August.
  • If you are visiting a city where gambling is prevalent like Las Vegas, you may want to check out the Factory outlet stores, pawn shops, consignment stores, etc.  
  • Price comparison sites like pricegrabber, froogle, priceCanada, can also be helpful or you can google. “compare prices” to come up with many other sites you can use too.
  • Auctions and estate sales.



If a deal sounds too good to be true there is a good possibility it is a fake or stolen.  Be careful.
