Thrift Score Thursday!

Welcome to Thrift Score Thursday!  Today’s find comes from a Goodwill in Mooresville, NC!

Oh Yeah!

Oh Yeah!

You’re looking at a quite gorgeous and totally flawless fur jacket.  I think it’s mink.  I don’t know any furriers, but I do know a hunter who has assured me it is indeed mink.  :)

And I scored it for $20!!!

Glam, no?

Glam, no?

PLEASE don’t think that I think killing animals purely for their pelts is okay.  I don’t.  But, I love the furs I own that were either left to me by relatives or that I’ve scored at thrift shops and antique malls.  I appreciate their craftsmanship, style, and warmth!  I feel like a curator, taking on the responsibility of caring for these properly.  :)

And I loooove how fabulous I feel in a good fur!

There was quite a stir when I hopped into the Piggly Wiggly to grab a bottle of vino for an all-girls movie night with pals!  :)

Why yes...we most certainly are in the south, my friends!
