Thrifted for $6.63


I got this red wool jacket for $3.50. It looks like it’s the inner jacket that can zip into an outer jacket. It fit well and I like the collar and snaps down the front. I didn’t need another wool jacket—but it’s different than my other jackets in that it’s more casual...and I liked it because it’s red.


The next two items I got for $3.13; I probably shouldn’t have bought either of them. First is a gray and maroon wool sweater—it’s clearly a man’s sweater as it’s large on me. It also appears to be handmade (since I can see the yarn ends on the inside); it’s a well-made garment. I like the design and color choice of the sweater.


And I got a petticoat that I thought I could wear under skirts and dresses to make it more voluminous…and it does, but perhaps too much for me.

Things I Didn’t Buy 38


This Santa doll is sooooo creepy—it’s hilarious. Look at his eyes; he’s saying, “I know you’ve been naughty. NO TOYS FOR YOU!” And I didn’t realize it until later, but there's a clown photo bombing the picture.


I thought about getting this old Nancy Drew book from the 1950s. However, besides missing the cover on the spine, there was mold growing on it.


This was just an interesting electric power book cover.


This serving tray was cool—so 1960s.


I liked this serving tray was well.
