During a recent ‘thriftover’ my client’s mom pointed out a scarf to me that was on display. I had walked past it numerous times but never noticed it. After all, I was thrifting over her daughter and was concentrating on her. Imagine my surprise when I walked over to look at the scarf and saw this tag hanging from it:
First I was like OMG! It’s Giorgio Beverly Hills, a high end name brand.Then I looked at the original asking price. Are you kidding me? Who would pay that much for a scarf? Obviously no one, because it ended up at the thrift store!
Then, I turned the tag over and found this:
This was Thrift Town’s asking price. Still pretty high, right?! Then, I looked on the wall and discovered that violet tags were 50% off that day! That brings this $260.00 scarf down to $20.00 right?
Before I go any further, this is what the scarf looks like. By the way, did I mention that it is reversible? Here is side one:
You know how I feel about purple ( I don’t like it ). So I was pleased when I turned it over and saw this…
Nothing but silver. Okay, let’s stop right here and discuss this scarf. First…what IS this? A leaf? A wing? Seriously, help me out here. Second…the veins in the scarf are rubber! I know, right! To wear it you feed the end on the right through the hole on the bottom left. Crazy, huh!
Back to my story…
I get to the register to pay for my scarf and the cashier was like “No one was going to pay $40.00 for this scarf.” and I was like “I know! I’m glad it’s 50% off” THEN I handed her a coupon that was for $10.00 off when you spend $20.00. HELLO!!!!! That means I walked out the door with a $260.00 high end scarf for only $10.00!
Score one for me! ;-)
What is your best thrifted score?
Remember…I scored this scarf when I was doing a thriftover on my friend’s 20 year old daughter. Here is her amazing transformation from typical college student to polished professional:
