I realize that I haven’t had any thrifting posts for a long time. This is partly due to the fact that I am trying to cut down on accumulation but also — and more importantly — to the fact that the baton has been passed to husband. Seriously, people, the man comes up with much better stuff than I ever did. I admit that he’s not scrounging the housewares section for cast off Heath ceramics, but his fortune in clothing + accessories knows no bounds. Recent finds in our [backwoods, poverty-stricken] local thrift stores have included shirts by Christian Dior and Brooks Brothers, suit jackets by Brooks Brothers and Barney’s, Diesel jeans, and a pair of 7 for All Mankind jeans (for $2!). Most of these fit him, and the ones that don’t he plans to resell for a tidy profit.
Yesterday, however, he made a little thrifting pilgrimmage to Coeur D’Alene and came back with what we think is his best find yet. And he gave it to ME.
The grand total? $10.
I love this man.
