Charity shops can be real treasure troves and every so often, there's a story about a person who bags themselves literal treasure for a fraction of its real price.
Taking to TikTok, Sarah Dunk, 28, shared a video of herself excitedly pointing out the vintage garment on the charity shop rack.
The camera then zooms in on the admittedly stunning dress before she reveals that it has a Gianni Versace label.
Sarah, from Toronto, Canada, clearly loves it too and described the dress as 'stunning' and 'perfect'.
When she pointed out the dress to her friend, she said: "Don't wanna be dramatic, but, that over there, you're gonna freak out."
She then reveals that the item is on sale for just C$17.49, which is the equivalent of just over £10, and ends the video by saying: "Stay tuned, everybody."
Sara added to the excitement she felt about her find in the caption, writing: "I have no words."
As you can imagine, the video has gone far from unnoticed since it was posted on 5 March, and it's already been viewed over 15 million times.
Prior to making the find, Sarah was already well-known on the platform for her thrifting and she told Insider that's why she immediately began to record when she found the dress.
"I checked the tag and when I saw what it was, the adrenaline immediately kicked in! That was the moment I clicked record on my phone," she told the news outlet.
In an update, Sarah confirmed that she bought the dress.
Reacting to the find, one TikTok user gushed: "My jaw dropped. That’s not just Versace it’s VINTAGE Versace. Best find ever!!"
"I am shocked someone just donated a vintage Gianni Versace piece," added a second viewer.
A third revealed its potential price, writing: "I just looked this up on 1st dibs - from 1992 collection $9800."
"What's it like being gods favourite [sic]," questioned a fourth while a fifth joked: "Um excuse me I was actually about to buy that please put it back [sic]."
After reading the comments, Sarah thanked TikTok users for letting her know how much the piece was worth as she said she was struggling to make the revelation herself.
