You ever wonder what happens to name brand clothes if they don't sell? Maybe you already know the answer to this question, but I didn't until today.
They go to our favorite dollar craft store......DOLLAR TREE. Yeah, that's what I thought too.
As I walked into DT, I had one of those moments where you ask yourself "where am I and what am I doing here?" I immediately did a double take to make sure I was in said location. Once confirmed, I stood in awe of what I saw.
A designer name brand that I LOVE and haven't seen in LOOOONG time. Talbots...yeah, a Talbots shirt being sold for a buck at the dollar store. Who ever would have known that?
The bin was marked "Vintage" Clothes, but as I looked through, I recognized a couple other name brands i.e. Rue 21 and Old Navy. Now granted, these were not Sunday's best clothes (and they really weren't what I think of as "vintage"), but they were nice cotton t-shirts; great for crafting and doing all the things that Moms do.
As I was on a tight schedule to visit my favorite dollar stores within two hours, I didn't sort through the bin. I had to stick to my aggressive time plan and craft budget. Well, no sooner than I loaded my cart up and headed for the check-out, I bumped into a dear friend.
All I can say is I stuck to the budget...
Hopefully, I'll get to the other stores this week so I can get some projects finished and posted.
