Thrift stores are great. (But you already knew that.) I love the potential. I love the one-of-a-kind finds. I love the feeling of finding something I've been wanting for a long time, or something great with the tags still attached. This vest was one of those finds where I really couldn't believe it hadn't been snapped up already when I pulled it off of the rack. It's a hand made (and homemade from the looks of it) leather vest. Usually vests at the thrift store are way too big in the body for me, but it's like this one fits like it was made with my measurements in mind. Oh, and it was only seven bucks.
