Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: The Stam is one of Marc Jacobs signature (and most covetable) handbags, named for Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam, who plays muse to photographer Steven Meisel and and credits Miu Miu with launching her career. We spotted a barely used, bright red and quilted incarnation of the carryall while poking around at a resale shop in Tempe that was packed with designer finds.
