What town are you in? What did you pay? We talking real Salvation Army thrift, or a well-edited trendy boutique 'thrift-find'?
usually I just hit the well-edited boutiques. But when a fetching wimmen from work asked me to accompany her one Saturday on a thrifting spree, who was I to refuse? I picked this up for about 3 bucks at some church rag store.
I'm the Asheville NC area which has an abundance of thrift stores, including both the well-edited boutique and the junky salvation army types. I've gotten many things over the past few months at a great boutique place that seems to specialize in 50s/60s with some select things from later decades. Got a great houndstooth-patterned, narrow lapel, cashmere blazer there that fits me perfectly. Made in the 60s. I think I picked it up for around $25.
