"I think I'll do skirts today," or "Only knitwear this time." It can get a little overwhelming otherwise.
Foolishly, I didn't have a plan before I got in there, and by the time I'd fumbled my way through the dresses and pants, I was already getting fabric fatigue. But I plunged onward, into skirts, and managed to find an amazing one, almost new, from one of my favorite designer labels. $6.50. If I'd bought it new in their downtown store, I'd have been looking at $300. Minimum. Score!
Through the skirts and into the shirts. By this time, my arms ached from pushing hangers back and forth, and the pile of things I was clutching to try on was getting larger. But I don't get out there often, so was determined to make the most of it.
Two hours later, I staggered out, head reeling, nose full of dust and clutching a small plastic bag. Along with the amazing skirt, I got two very nice shirts and a pair of pants. Total cost? $34.00.
I love second hand stores. Do you? Do you have a technique to battle the fatigue that comes with bargain hunting?
