SHOPPING in LA HAUL

My was visiting and one of the places we always go shopping in LA at Santee alley. They had some great deals & beautiful things. Santee Alley in in downtown LA & they have a bunch of little stores where you can find things for cheap. They have beautiful shoes, bags & jewelry. The last time I was there they had straighteners & clipless curling irons for $25. The shoes, boots & purse that came out as the fall trend were already out this summer. They also have tons of $1 jewelry.

I bought this purse for $25. It has a long & short strap & I love the details.
There was this guy there who was selling the CoastalScents palettes & he had these singles & the case. I picked my own colors for $18. I figured if the CS shadows work, these would be good too. When I go back, I'm going to get the blush palette.
I think these may be the Hot Pots. They are so pigmented & creamy. LOVE!
This jewelry is $1 a piece, The 2 stacks of bracelets $1 also. I always stock up when I'm there.
All the sunglasses were $5. Don't forget to negotiate. Usually if you get more than 1 thing, the price goes down. The shoes are $5-30. I need to get some more shoes!! they also have NYX for 30-50% less.

Have you been to the Alley? What is your favorite bargain find?

I love the santee. I dont really go to the alley coz its more expensive. I go outside the alley where i find cheaper price.

Where did u find a guy selling hot pots?? I want my own palette too. For sure its the same thing as coastal scents!!

I live in SoCal but I have never been to the Alley-- I'm so jealous you found that bag f0r $25! It a dupe for the BCBG bag that I found for $50 at Burlington's Coat Factory. I'm so jealous!
