Dean has been looking for a vintage 80’s skinny white tie. Every time we go into a thrift store, he runs to the tie rack hoping to find this elusive thing. He has scoured places like Poshmark and eBay yet struck out each time he looked.
Today, by a stroke of luck, he found one.
I was sidetracked by women’s shirts and was browsing the many racks of tops and blouses when he approached me with a shocked look on his face…a skinny white tie in his hand.
The tie was perfect. No marks, no dirt. Just as white as snow and perfect as could be. It looked like it had never been worn.
There is nothing nicer than seeing someone you love with a heart full of happiness at finding something so truly desired.
What is the takeaway message in this short post? Never give up if you are searching for a particular item. If an Internet search doesn’t produce it, look in your local thrift stores…and shop often.
Like the moment I found that Betsey Johnson watch, you never know what you’re going to stumble upon.
And when you do happen to find the item of your dreams, thank the thrift gods and donate something back to the thrift store for someone else to find and enjoy.
Let’s keep the cycle going, giving and receiving, for it benefits us all!
