With a carefully crafted name, the play on words for the Mercy nonprofit organization cohesively works with the French ‘thank you.’ The charitable Old Town consignment store has a curious collection of goods from a fierce 1970’s vintage Louis Vuitton racquet case to designer ravinia-ware (the one pictured is Picnic at Ascot). The signature LV monogram holder is priced at $290 on Ebay, but Mercy is only charging $250 with proceeds going directly back to the organization. Not only do they have discounted prices, but a current sale of up to 40% off and with replenishments coming in daily. Other steals we spotted today included an army green Calvin Klein military jacket, a long Burberry trench, and a Vera Bradley boysenberry quilted cell phone cover. - Shelby Steiner
