Last June, I blogged about thrift shopping adventures in Victoria BC where, in a Salvation Army Thrift Store, I passed up on a Kate Spade purse because they were asking $20 for it. It just felt like too much money to pay in a thrift store for a used purse, even if it was a Kate Spade purse. I got tons of feedback on that, both on the blog and in person, from folks who couldn’t believe that I had passed that up. I almost had regret.
Fast forward to December and a little visit to the MCC Clothing Etc. Thrift Shop in Abbotsford and what did I find? A Kate Spade purse in beautiful condition. It is very similar to the one I saw in Victoria, only a little bit bigger. It has two teeny spots on the front, the inside is pristine.
And what did I pay for this beauty? As you can see from the tag in the first picture: $5. Totally worth the wait. The only question now is, should I keep it or resell it? What would you do?
