Serendipity Strikes Again

I’m so happy right now I can’t stand it! This jacket is brand new! Well really old but nobody ever wore it so , new!  The red wool dress was knitted by some loving hand and this denim jacket is a tiny bit big but I’ll small it up and add some patches. Can’t wait! I stop and stare at the green train case whenever I pass it by. It’s time travel! Treasure hunting through history…I’m addicted!

The brown jacket in the top photo is the real story here, the craziest part. About 9 years ago I found a jacket just like this for 4 bucks at the same thrift shop.  I sold it on Ebay for 70 bucks so I figure I got this new one for free!  Sellers regret was involved, so this is a big win! Then, and this is wacky, I was doing a google search for something last week and these pix I took of the first jacket to sell it on Ebay popped up.  No lie! This whole jacket thing has been so bizarro, serendipitous! Seriously, I had this post finished then updated it with these pix as proof of the craziness.  AND…good to see my photography’s improved a little!

Here are the Ebay photos…
