My thrifty husband strikes again.

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 magic letters.

The magic tag.

The grand total? $10.

Our best thrifting find ever. 

I love this man.

  1. A lady sitting across from me at the airport today had this purse sitting at her feet!!! I excitedly told Nathanael that, Paula has that purse!!! But he looked at me with a puzzled expression. He hadn’t read this post. It was comical.
