Los Angeles: Former Bond Girl Gemma Arterton loves shopping in vintage stores because she can haggle over the price.

The `Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time` star has become a huge fan of vintage stores because she gets stunning items of clothing at cheap prices, Vogue magazine online reported.

"Yesterday I bought an incredible pair of vintage, leather harem trousers in a shop in Los Angeles. I couldn`t believe it when I looked at the price tag and they were USD 38," said Arterton.

Although she likes a bargain, the 24-year-old beauty does enjoy getting dressed up for the red carpet because it means she can wear expensive gowns, something she wouldn`t do in everyday life.

"Of course I enjoy it! I get to wear things that I would never be able to wear in my own life. As I do more work, I`ve been able to wear some really fantastic designers, like Valentino for example. I`m always excited to try things on and play designer dress up!" said Arterton.
