Are you a resourceful secondhand shopper? See a fun challenge in the Seattle Times.
Here’s my entry:
My red knit sweater coat came from the Birch Bay Consignment and Thrift Store.
I saw it as I walked in the door and heard it calling my name. I tried it on, it fit, and the price was $7.00!
It has a red lining; no labels. It is clutch style but I wanted to be able to fasten it closed, so I found the great safety pin at a neighboring shop, Beach Basket Yarns and Gifts, at the artisan price of $32; the scarf was a gift from my late mother many years ago. I believe, even with the splurge for the pin, that the outfit for less than $40 is a fantastic bargain.
Deadline for entries is midnight, February 11, 2013.
