Tuesday: Scoring at the Thirft Store AGAIN!!!

Remember the 1960's colorful shift from last week? Well, I just happened to drop back by there yesterday and hit the JACKPOT!

Warning: If you are anti-real mink, please click away NOW!

When I first walked in the door of the store, I spotted a rack with 6 mink stoles and one mink jacket, each marked $50. You need to know that my daughter and I have a weakness for vintage furs. Now, mind you, we hardly ever wear them here in HOT Texas, but we love them anyway.

So I inspected the jacket, with a Neiman Marcus label, and immediately thought
,"Christmas present for Korrie". I set it back behind the check-out counter and went around looking at other items in the shop. One of the managers started talking with me and said she had just put those "minks" out an hour earlier. So I had to ASK:"If I buy several, would you give me a discount?" Her response, "if you buy 3 or more, I'll take $10 off each". Soooo... Three of them came home with me!!!

Here's the jacket, which was my first choice:




I quickly picked out this darker brown stole--with an amazing lining and interesting interior pockets:






And this wonderful light gray beauty with great pockets on the front joined the group:






At only $40 each, I love them all and can only say SCORE, SCORE, SCORE!!!

SCORE!!!! I have a vintage fur coat that belonged to my Grandma. I'd never wear it in southern California though. Not only is it not cold enough, I'd be afraid because of all the animal activists that live here. Yes, I am a scardy cat. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.

Oh wow, that's amazing! I can't imagine someone sending a mink to a thrift store, but all the better for you!

Very beautiful furs and all the better when you get them at such a great deal. My Mom was trying to sell my Grandma's fur coat. I will have to let you know the details. ;-)

love the stoles! and the jacket too of course, we see these at bluebird here in houston but they regularly price them at 70 or so, that was a steal for such good condition!
