...in the visiting thrift store sense.
First I dislike shopping with every fiber of my being. I don't like hunting and not finding what I want in a department store, let alone a thrift store. I'm also a cheapskate. I'm okay with that too.
By chance we ended up at a Goodwill with JR's sis and mom, earlier this month. I still have 16 lbs to lose and my kids have plenty of clothes, so I started looking for clothes for Jonathan. I've been wanting to buy him a sport coat (with elbow patches), but they are ridiculous expensive. By chance I found 2 his size (without elbow patches). We bought both, one for $13 and one for $6.50. One was from Bachrach. Both were wool and silk.
JR really needed a new pair of chocolate colored slacks and I knew they would look good with one coat. I picked up a pair on sale at JCPenney online and while I was at it I bought him a total impulse purchase. A fedora that was also on sale.
I'm such a geek. I was totally born at the wrong time.
