Anyway, I had to stop by Missouri Sewing Machine in Overland Park today to get some bobbin cases fixed for school. After waiting around for 30 minutes for some little hunched-over man in the back room to screw in some nuts and bolts, I realized I wasn't far from a pretty decent thrift- Turn Styles. Here is the link to their website.
I didn't find any good furniture (except a $5 dresser, which could have been painted, but it had zero character), so I decided to look through some of the clothing. After all, all clothing was an additional 50% off.
Ew? No way! It's called a washing machine. I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure a large majority of clothing at retail stores are tried on 1000 times OR have been returned. Used is Used.
Low and behold, I found a GREAT knee-length pea coat in my favorite color (taupe!) and in fabulous condition. I was weary about it being a size too small, but it fit!
Please excuse the blurriness of this picture. My wonderful
husband has very limited photography skills!
Originally $10, I got it for $5, $5.50 with tax. Can't beat that!
