Take this Chico's green Tropical Print Jacket... I found it at a thrift store for $1.50 (half price day) and am selling it on eBay for $9.99. Still a huge bargain. And should it not sell - I'll have another cute jacket for me!
Same goes for this little Liz Claiborne purse - I paid $1.50.
So don't be afraid of the thrift stores and eBay-
they are a treasure trove!
