As usual, I am a day late but Ronnie posted the question yesterday, "What is your secret (or not-so-secret) passion?"
I am addicted to thrift stores. Like seriously addicted.
I think it is because I was a Fashion Merchandising major in college and worked retail for so long. I REFUSE to pay full price for anything. And I must say, I can find the BEST deals on the most amazing quality clothing. I am not just saying that! Case in point........
Yesterday, I found a 100% cashmere v-neck black sweater and black and white wool tweed Ann Taylor fully lined pants both for..........wait for it................$3.25 a piece at one of my favorite thrifts.
Last week, instead of going to Rack Room shoes, I hit another of my favorite thrifts and found BRAND NEW black leather waterproof boots with the tags still attached (the long kind with the side zip) for $10.00.
Another week, I found I gorgeous faux suede and shearling hooded winter coat that looked brand new for $4.50. When I got home the tag was still in the coat pocket.........it was a $200 coat.
And I the list could go on, and on, and on......................
I used to have an E-bay store but due to my newly elected PTO position, that requires full time participation, I had to close it for now. It is what kept me and my kids in a rotation of nice clothing.
So, I guess you could say, what started as a small thrifting habit has become a passion.
Now you know!!!
Oh, and for those of you that will see me tomorrow in Waco........head to to thrift clothes. No lie.
