I routinely buy quality clothing in thrift shops. But also, I travel between climate zones and often misjudge temperature differences in winter and summer. I was in some mountains when the hourly bus service got cancelled meaning a 2 hour wait. It was a freezing cold, windy evening. I went into a thrift store that was about to close, picked up a boys hooded down parka for a few dollars, paid and put it on in the shop.

When I got the parka home, I saw that the tag inside was "BRAVE SOUL". I still love that parka!
I do love this! In fact, many times I will wear something out of the store. This may be bizarre to some people, but I do it because the item that I just purchased is more stylish than what I came into the store wearing

Thanks for sharing your story!
