fastest thrift score ever *

i think i've mentioned before how dangerous it is to have a goodwill strategically located beside our local grocery store. while paul picked up food for dinner on saturday i took a quick browse next door. when he came by 15 minutes later to pick me up, i found this beauty:
coat

i know i won't be able to wear it for long, what with warmer weather coming. but for now it is the perfect spring coat. (will also work nicely for fall)

*sorry to all my flickr friends who've already seen this....

I actually think it's fun to see it in different places. Like I get another angle on the story. I mean, it's a great coat, no apologies needed!

i know how you feel! thrift fair is neighbor to our grocery store as well, which is just a few blocks from our apartment - it's tough not to go everyday!!!

lovely coat, by the way!!!

Nice thrifting. That is a cute coat.
I just found a church thrift store conveniently located about a fifteen minute walk from my home. It is only open a few days a week and it shares a hallway with a store that sells fairly traded goods, incuding organic dark chocolate bars!

What a super coat! A thrift store next to the supermarket is certainly less dangerous than other things!

It really is a great coat... and you'll be so excited to pull it out of the closet next fall!

I just love your coat- totally cool. I love thrift stores too. I am completely obsessed with them lately- for books and cool old jeans and really anything I can find.

Awesome coat Krissy, and thanks for your good wishes about our new house...we'll have you and Paul over for "High Tea" as soon as we are set up. In the meantime, we should organize another DimSum?
