thriftedPosted: May 15, 2010
you know the drill.
airing out a couple recently thrifted items that have that all-too familiar thrift-store smell. a fantastically colored, seemingly unused granny square afghan and another cool retro head scarf.
i had a decent, respectable woman nearly beg me for the vintage granny square afghan in goodwill when she saw it in my arms. she was relentless. obviously i didn’t give in to her pleading. at $4, how could i? the colors are so good. the smell on the other hand…
thank goodness for an unusually high wind day. perfect for smell riddance.
and why did i buy this?
‘cuz it was 79¢ and had a hans bolling feel to it and made me chuckle – i couldn’t resist the whole beret/pipe/casually lounging around, holding my arms around my knees scene.
