Kat Von D, Bargain Hunter

In these uncertain economical times, even celebrities are looking for ways to save a little dough. (Well, some of them, anyway.)

LA Ink star Kat von D hit up the Melrose Trading Post flea market in Los Angeles with a gal-pal yesterday, shunning the ridiculously expensive boutiques that otherwise line Melrose Avenue in order to dig for hidden, less wallet-busting treasures.

Atta girl, Kat! Way to be thrifty!

Hopefully among the baubles that you sifted through, you were able to score some discount guy-liner and silk panties for your boyfriend, Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx.
