Sarah Jessica Parker earned $15 million for starring in and co-producing Sex and the City: The Movie, but the style guru still pinches pennies. The actress, who grew up poor, resells her swag! Sarah Jessica sends an assistant to NYC consignment shop Ina to drop off armloads of the freebies she receives, then collects a percentage of the profits. “She brings in bags full of brand-new, unworn clothes,” including Marc Jacobs purses and Fred Segal jeans, says an insider. And just like the lucky shoppers who snap up her low-cost handoffs, the frugal 43-year-old believes in a good bargain. The star, who often purchases secondhand items from the trendy SoHo boutique, has a discount fashion line, Bitten, featuring items that cost less than $10. “Sarah Jessica is a regular customer at Ina,” the insider reveals.
