I'm bragging

I just bought an LLBean winter coat that lists for 200+ in their catalog for 14.99 at the thrift store.

Even though I might only use it 5 days a year, I FEEL GREAT ABOUT THE DEAL.

Now excuse me while I make "sand angels" on the beach.

2. Good job👍

As a fellow bargain hunter, I can tell you that you have good reason to make sand angels!

5. I think shipping would kill that.

It's amazing what living in floriduh will get you in the way of cast offs.

6. No problem, I didn't get my hopes up. :)

Were there many winter clothes there? I might have to check out the thrift stores next time I visit.

9. there were a lot of down vests

some with sleeves but none of them were my size.

There were a lot of Hawaiian shirts, one of them silk, YES, SILK, that did not fit me.

I only went there to check the place out. It's a new store.

11. Some labels of hawaiian shirts sell for a lot on eBay, especially the silk ones

For a while my brother in law was buying stuff from thrift stores and selling on eBay - he could make a big profit on the better shirts.

As long as you are selective and able to be picky, you can get great things at thrift shops. Most of the clothes I wore as a kid and teenager came from one. Even now, I still shop at them sometimes.

7. I get you! I'm the same way about thrift store shopping

I've found amazing bargains and awesome things at our local thrift stores. You need to be patient though, and look at everything on every rack. The best stuff is always hanging on the wrong rack. That's why nobody else saw it or bought it.

8. If it fails in any way (like a stuck zipper), LL Bean will replace it for free

win win!

10. Outstanding deal!

I get all excited too when I find an insanely good bargain. I have found some in my day, but nothing that compares to your find!

13. I love consignment stores

I once bought a dress so beautiful at a consignment shop I wore it to a wedding ... Paid $10

I bought a Lands End full length quilted winter coat hardly worn for $25

But the item I love most is a hot pink London Fog belted trench coat brand new with tags from Macy's ... $15

I love getting bargains like this!!!!
