I heart thrifting...the thrill of the hunt










So, the other day I told you I got my best thrift find ever.  Well, maybe not ever...but pretty close.  I found these Hunter - Sovereign boots.  SCORE!  I was trying on a pair of clogs, talking with an old guy about the safety of wearing clogs on a cruise when I spotted these babies under a table.  Needless to say the conversation was over...I picked them up, they are heavy as hell, turned them over to check the price, $15.00...YEP!  But, wait there's more...all the shoes in the store are 40% off! (Housing Works Thrift Store, 17th Street btwn. 7th & 8th ave., if your in manhattan) I got them for $9.00....and my size...WHAT!?  I have coveted a pair of authentic Hunter boots for sometime now...but, I knew I would never spend that kind of money on rubber boots...It was like the universe wanted me to have them...maybe it's because I signed up for my neighborhood garden club during the Christmas break and the universe thought I could use rubber boots in the garden????  Hum?  ...and not just any rubber boots, the best rubber boots money can buy...don't believe me, check them out here.  I say all of this to encourage you.  Do what you love and the rest will fall into place.  I promise.  Okay, enough preaching, I gotta get to work on that office.

  1. Those are quite the score! That's how I felt when I thrifted my Louis Vuitton Sac Plait for 50 bucks! No lie.

    The handles were busted on them so I took them to the LV store (kinda nervous they were gonna laugh at me) but they Replaced the handles for 200 bucks!

    Ummm...While I dropped off the bag, I asked to see the new version because my bag was vintage...well it is $1100!!! Needless to say that was a score! ANd ma'am, please don't just banish those boots to gardening...rock them w jeans or a floral skirt!
