I F.I.N.A.L.L.Y. broke out of our house on Tuesday, and hit some Thrifts! The Bright thing was out in the sky (I think they call it 'The Sun'?)! The thermometer had TWO numbers on it - it was a Glorious day!!
Didn't purchase much, but Oh how GOOD it felt to be back...
The Thrifts were kinda sparse - I think that they are trying to clear out some Winter things, in preparation for New Spring things. I hate to tell them, but they have PLENTY of time until SPRING!!
One Thrift was doing a special Clothing Bag Sale - $3.00 .
While I was checking out the Clothing, to see if I should even bother getting a bag, I noticed these velvet(?) covered- thin hangers. I have LONG been 'anti-DryCleanerMetal hangers', and have gradually phased them out of our closets and replaced with cool vintage advertising WOODEN hangers. A friend gave me a package of the 'velvet' hangers for Christmas. NOT Liking them at first, I gave in and gave them a try. They are kinda growing on me. In our ongoing 'Battle of The Closet', I am starting to incorporate these 'velvet' hangers (replacing cheap plastic hangers). They are 'anti-slip' and take up Way-Less space!!
(...maybe you CAN teach old Dogs NEW tricks?!)
While soaking in all the therapy of Thrifting... a rack of Men's neckties caught my attention. J & I have been brainstorming of ways to make On-line sales more profitable (since I'm still unemployed, something needs to 'Step-up'!!)... Better pricing? Different pictures? Niche' market? Throw in the towel?
Hey, why not try some retro/vintage 'novelty neckties' ?
You GOTTA Love a subtle Disney POOH!

in search of ?Pomeranians?

can offer any help...)
