Buddette One Frugal Girl is talking about things she's automatically drawn to. (Her list includes nice bowls and platters, dangly earrnings and swimsuits.)
I asked Daughter #1, who slept over last night, this question. Her list:
*graphic tees (not ones with words on them)
*wool coats with military-type details
*'destroyed' and "really dark" jeans
*things for her apartment -- especially pillows and prints for the wall
(When I asked her about the t-shirts -- she'd worn many with captions in high school -- she sighed and gently said, "Mom, my style has changed a lot.")
For me, the list would include:
*anything on the clearance rack or in the remnant bin
*imported cookies (I just found an incredible deal on German lebkuchen, the best cookies in the world, for more than half off on Amazon.)
*antique cups and plates -- matched, mismatched, doesn't matter
*any home dec items that are larger scale -- oversized clocks, basketry and such
*old books, postcards, catalogs, magazines
*weird stuff -- unusual prints, objects, quilts, handkerchiefs, whatever
*any classic fabric prints that can be used in a wide variety of projects -- or the latest design in a smashing new color or shade
You can see that I'm much more comfortable in a fabric or secondhand shop than a standard retail place.
What does your list include?
