Last week, I spot a faux leather vest in Salvos, try it on with the door of the changing room open, to keep an eye on Jnr RF whilst he peruses the toy 'department'. A fellow op shopper walks by, and commends my find "Oh I like that, it looks great". Oh good, I think to myself, and head to the counter.
The volunteer assistant serving behind the sales desk compliments my buy too "That's a great little vest, its very cute" Chuffed with myself, I walk away with a 'new' $6 leatherette sleeveless jacket.
One wonders, if thrift store, charity shop and opportunity shop staff were to hover around the changing rooms, and compliment potential customer finds all day, they'll be sure to increase sales!
I'm wearing my vest today, with a refashioned $1 garage sale skirt made in Pakistan, and a pair of red flats, also from Salvos.
This is what my $1 garage sale skirt looked like before the refashion:

The clutch bag I am holding, is made from recycled chip packets, and is on its way to Alice Shel (together with a zipper brooch), for coming third place in the Brag Your Best Buys contest.
