At the bank, the teller raved about my (very tasteful) snowflake Christmas sweater. It looks so warm and perfect for the season! Where did I get it, if I don't mind her asking?
I don't mind. Value Village. This past spring, I happened to hit a sweet sale: all sweaters 50% off. I love cardigan sweaters and I love super sales and I found some wonderful deals, that I then had to wait six months to wear. Snowflake sweaters don't wear well in spring time!
But when I pulled it out from the depths of my furiously jam packed closet this week, I started to second guess myself. Snowflakes? Really? Seems almost too close to ugly sweater territory. I tried it on and remembered why I bought it! It's warm and cozy and cute and fits just right.
I don't mind sharing where I got my wonderful sweater....but it won't help the teller buy one. At Value Village, clothes are usually one of a kind!
The next day I wore a sweater my sister loved. Where did I get it, she asked. Oh, um, remember the garage sale we were both just at? And I went back later? Um, there. It was just waiting for me and my 25 cents to come along!
She may have scored two perfect pyrex dishes and lids, but I got a drool worthy sweater. It seems pretty even!
