As Seen on T.V.

Hey, my fabulous fellow thrift enthusiast. Recently I made my television debut as a guest on a local TV show called Perspective. The topic was of course THRIFTING. Myself along with two other veteran thrifters gave some of our top thrifting tips and showcased some of our favorite thrift store finds ( I posted the video link in a previous blog but unfortunately it was not working. Please check out the video below to view the show). One of my FAVORITE finds that I showcased was a beautiful sheared mink swing coat that I bought for my mom for $39.99. Yes you read that correctly I paid thirty nine dollars and ninety-nine cent for a sheared mink coat. If you are wondering how the he.. I lucked up on this fabulous find let me tell you the story.

It was a Wednesday morning and I was as usual in one of my favorite local thrift stores. I had been there about 30 minutes perusing the aisles to see what might catch my eye. That day I found a beautiful BCBG sweater for myself and a cute pair of Pastry gym shoes for my daughter. I was happy with my selections and decided my thrift addiction had been satisfied for the day. Just as I started to walk to the front of the store a sales lady rolled out a rack with something that caught my eye. On the rack was a beautiful black coat with vibrant colors and a big gorgeous button. I walked to the rack to check out the coat and when I touched it to my surprise I felt sheared mink. If you are wondering how I knew it was sheared mink, it’s because my mother owns one.  I looked at the collar to see the price and was amazed to see a yellow tag with $39.99. The coat immediately came off the rack and went into my cart. I called my mom to share my amazing thrifting treasure and she could not believe HER good fortune. I did say I bought the coat for her lol. A $5,000 coat for $39.99, can you say FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS. The ironic part of this story is that although this was an awesome find, discovering  great thrift treasures is not a rarity for me. What can I say I AM GOOD AT WHAT I DO!!!!! Check out tomorrows blog for a thrifty tip that keeps me at the top of my thrifting game. Knowledge is power and trust me the knowledge I’m dropping tomorrow you don’t want to miss.
