Folk Inspired / Take Three


    
     Many years ago I saw this jacket at Bloomingdales and I paused to admire it.  I was at a thrift shop and there it was in my size for less than five dollars!

  2. Great jacket, Ann! Do you go to thrift shops regularly?
    So far I only shoped at ebay but not in a thrift shop.
    Your photos are always so special!

    1. I am selling some of my clothes at consignment and while I'm waiting for my bunch to be considered, I always find something. Here in the US the thrifting / consignment shops are growing fast. People spent alot on clothing during early 2000's, now they are selling and re buying. Right now I'm finding good designer items, especially in shoes. I need to look at Ebay again. I ordered a BCBG jacket I saw in the store once and it was a freud. I've stayed away from ebay because of that. I like to try it on and look closely.
