This Week I Thrifted...

(thrifted sweater, old H&M leather necklace)

What? New w/ tags Acrylic sweater
Where? Salvation Army, Parry Sound
How Much? $6

I got this sweater at a Salvation Army up in Parry Sound while we were away this week. In the time it took Matt to gas up his vehicle nearby, I had done a good sweep of the store, found this sweater and listened to a woman give the breakdown on her menopausal status to anyone nearby. I bought the sweater because snuggly, beige sweaters are not to be left behind, especially when they are new with the tags on them still.

I didn't have a bag with me, so I had to pay the 5 cents at the register to purchase a bag and as I struggled, with my hands full, to get that nickel, the menopausal lady kindly stepped forward and counted out 5 pennies to pay for my bag. In exchange for her 5 cents, I admired and complimented every item of her thrift store haul as she excitedly held them up for me to see.

My compliments have monetary value. A nickel, if you please...

Heh I bet you're going to get some "Why did you have to pay a nickel?" questions on this one. I thought it was just Toronto thing...or an Ontario thing? Anyway, love the sweater. Always on the lookout for nice beigey sweaters at the thrift store.

I really love that leaf necklace on top of the sweater.

so i'm less worried about why you have to pay a nickel for a bag, and more why you need a bag for one sweater?? ;)

You always find the best thrift finds! I adore that leather leave necklace too.

The sweater is gorge! I have a hard time finding ones that aren't pulled/knotted or just generally worn looking.

the rusty artichoke- I always tie up my thrift store purchases in a plastic bag until I can get home and clean them. Dealing with bed bugs in University has made me super cautious...:/
